What to do After a Dog Bite Attack

After you have made sure the dog bite victim is safe or at least receiving proper medical attention, it is important to do the following:

  • Determine the name of the dog.
  • Determine the name and address of the dog’s owner.
  • Get the names, addresses and phone numbers of all witnesses to the incident.
  • Take photos of the location of the incident.
  • Order DNA testing of any saliva of the dog around the wound or on the victim’s clothing.
  • Have the treating physician perform an in-depth evaluation of the wound.
  • If possible, take photographs of the wound.
  • Do not permit the dog to be destroyed until after DNA testing as well as a mouth casting have been performed. This evidence will help with your dog bite lawsuit.
