It’s important to know that a lawyer can help you with a dog bite/attack incident.

We can walk you through the legal process, handle paperwork, and negotiate a settlement for your behalf. If a dog has bitten you, you could be owed compensation. But you have to be informed about what the next steps are in order to take them. That’s where a Gaithersburg dog bite lawyer can intervene. Once we know more about the situation, we can suggest the best next course of action. Filing a dog bite case against someone else involves paperwork that may be confusing to figure out on your own.

If you are bitten by a dog, the first thing you must do is get medical attention and locate the owner. Depending on the circumstances of the bite, you may or may not have the owner’s information. If the dog was loose and you don’t know who the owner is, report it to your local animal control office. If the owner is present, then take down their contact information, seek immediate medical help, and call the authorities. Filing a police report can be helpful to create a paper trail for your case. A negligent owner has to be stopped from their animal causing injuries to other people in the future. Take pictures of your injuries at their worst and obtain video footage if there was a camera that captured the attack.
