What To Do After Michigan Dog Bite

Not sure what to do after being bitten by a dog in Michigan?  Our experienced Michigan dog bite lawyers have some advice to you.

First, get prompt medical attention either at a doctor’s office, urgent care clinic, or hospital emergency department.  You can treat the wounds initially at home but proper medical care should be sought to prevent an infection or other serious problem.  It is often necessary to a physician stitch up a laceration or wound to prevent  future scarring.

Second, you should report the attack the police or Animal Control agency in your city or county.  Make sure you tell the Officer everything you know about the dog, including name and address of the dog owner.  Quite often, the dog will be quarantined until the agency believes it is safe for the public.

Third, take photographs of the injuries immediately after the bite and throughout the healing process.  This will be helpful if you decide to file a dog bite claim at a later date.

Fourth, contact our experienced dog bite attorneys to see if you are entitled to a settlement.  Although the dog owner’s insurance company may contact you directly, the adjuster usually will try to pay you a lowball offer to get you to sign away your legal rights.  Don’t make this mistake but it can cost you a lot of money and aggravation.
