Dog bites

What should I do immediately after a dog bite incident?

Tampa, FL personal injury attorney Jack Holcomb discusses what to do immediately after a dog bite incident. He explains that immediately following a dog bite incident, your first priority should be seeking medical attention to ensure your well-being and guard against potential infections. Additionally, it is crucial to document the details of the incident if possible. If you are able, take pictures of the dog involved. One significant challenge is that many of these attacks occur without anyone knowing the identity of the dog owner. Therefore, try to obtain any form of identification of the dog or its owner, if feasible. Once you have the opportunity, either access your phone or ask a family member to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Tracing down the dog owner can be difficult, and there may also be liability for the establishment where the bite occurred. Documenting everything and capturing multiple pictures, if feasible, will be valuable in building your case and seeking appropriate legal assistance.
