What To Do After a Dog Attack

It’s horrifying to see someone you love viciously attacked by a dangerous animal. You’ll want to do everything you can to keep your composure so you can get your loved ones the medical attention they need. Following these steps will help you and your family get through this difficult time:

  1. Administer first aid by applying direct pressure to the wound.
  2. See a doctor right away.
  3. Report the attack to your local county health department.
  4. If the dog owner is present, ask for their insurance information.
  5. Collect names and contact information from anyone who witnesses the attack.
  6. Use your cell phone camera to capture photos of the victim’s injuries, the accident scene, and the animal involved in the attack if you can do it safely.
  7. Contact Justin Morgan Law.
  8. If an insurance agent contacts you, don’t make any statements about the attack or sign any agreements. Tell the agent that your attorney will be getting in touch with them.
  9. Don’t reveal details about the accident with friends or talk about it on social media.
  10. Continue to attend medical and physical therapy appointments and save records for the treatment you receive.

How Your Weston Dog Bite Lawyer Can Help

Florida is a strict liability State when it comes to dog bites. That means an owner is liable for any injuries their animal causes. Justin Morgan Law will investigate the accident by interviewing witnesses, reviewing the accident report, and examining physical evidence.

If the owner violated the law by failing to follow leash laws and other State and local ordinances, it is referred to as negligence per se, and this will strengthen your case.

Our attorneys will find out whether the dog has a history record of attacking others. Florida has dangerous dog laws, and if the dog has harmed or menaced anyone in the past, owners are required to take additional precautions to prevent it from injuring people.

When our investigation is complete, Justin Morgan Law will file a claim or lawsuit against the animal’s owner and anyone else who committed an act of negligence that contributed to your injuries. It will include these types of damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Emotional suffering
  • Ambulance transport
  • Trauma counseling
  • Skin grafts
  • Emergency room treatment
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Time missed from work
  • Wrongful death

Injuries Caused by Dog Bites

Dogs are powerful animals with sharp teeth designed for hunting prey. When a dog bites someone, it will instinctively go after the victim’s neck and face. Dogs also cause harm by knocking victims down, breaking bones, and causing head injuries. Children and seniors who are less able to defend themselves are particularly vulnerable to these attacks.

Injuries caused by dog attacks include:
