Untrained, unsocialized dogs that haven't been neutered or spayed can be dangerous to people and cause serious harm to those they attack. If you've been bitten by a dog, it's important to know your rights.
- Identify the dog and try to get the name and address of the owner.
- Seek medical attention
- Take photographs of your injuries
- Get the name, address, and telephone number of any potential witnesses. You may have to return to the accident scene and knock on any nearby homes and businesses.
- In addition, if the injuries are serious, it is important to talk to a lawyer. Dog owners are responsible for keeping their pets controlled and properly socialized. A failure to do so can increase the potential if their dog bites a person.
