Dog Bite First Aid

Even dogs that appear to be well-trained and calm around people have the potential to attack without warning. Sudden dog attacks might occur even in the absence of provocation, leaving a vulnerable party susceptible to the risk of serious injury and effectively defenseless. Dog bite injuries need to be treated immediately to prevent infection and blood loss.

If you or your loved one has suffered from a serious injury caused by a dog bite, it is important that you learn about your legal rights and the legal liability of the dog’s owner. It may be possible to recover financial compensation for medical bills and other damages. Contact the Michigan dog bite attorneys of Ravid & Associates, P.C., at 877-PET-BITE to discuss your case.

Steps to Take Following a Dog Bite

Depending on the severity of a dog bite, you may need to take several or all of the following steps:

  • Call 911
  • Allow to bleed for a few minutes
  • Wash with anti-bacterial soap
  • Flush the wound with water
  • Use antiseptic to disinfect wound
  • Cover with gauze

Once the dog bite has been treated by a medical professional and your condition has stabilized, it is advisable to consult with an attorney about your case. Following the bite, it is important to report the event to the authorities. A police report will provide valuable evidence in a lawsuit and might increase the likelihood of receiving compensation for your pain and suffering. Witness testimony will also help in future legal proceedings. Photographs of injuries may also be used as evidence.

In most situations, dog owners are deemed legally responsible for the actions of their pet. The failure to adequately secure their dog or to otherwise prevent an attack is unacceptable. If a dog owner’s negligence has resulted in injury to you or your loved ones, you need to fight for compensation.
