When you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, you might be wondering what to do after a dog bite injury. Give us a call to get started.
What should I do after a dog bite injury?
Once somebody’s been bitten by a dog, the first thing that should happen is getting medical care and get immediate follow up. After that, people often wonder, “What is the next thing that I should do?” What I encourage you to do is get a hold of a skilled trial attorney to talk about your situation. Dog bite situations can be surprisingly complex based on where it is, who has the dog, what type of dog it was, and what exactly precipitated the dog bite, if anything. Was it an unprecipitated attack? All those things are important in ultimately evaluating the case. I encourage you to talk to an experienced Idaho trial attorney about your dog bite claim before you talk to the insurance company. It might be the individual’s homeowner’s insurance company or it might be some commercial insurance company that’s involved that deals with the dog bite case.
You want to understand your situation before you get involved with the folks on the other side. The folks on the other side aren’t there to help you. That insurance company who represents the owner of the dog is not there to help you, and they’re not looking for information that will assist you. They’re looking for information to use against you, as a general rule, and you need to be careful about talking to them. You need to be prepared before you talk to them, so before you head down that route, give us a call so we can discuss your situation and make sure that you know what you want to do to move forward with your dog bite case.
