What to do after a dog bite injury in Milwaukee

Dog bites can cause deep tissue damage, broken bones and infection. However they can also cause more serious injuries. As a result, if you are bit by a dog you should follow the steps below:

  • See a doctor: First, you should seek immediate medical attention.
  • Identify the animal: Next you should try to find out to who the dog belongs. This can help the hospital in determining if the animal has rabies.
  • Gather evidence: Talk to any witnesses in the area who may have observed the attack. Additionally, use a cell phone or disposable camera to take photos of your injuries and the dog if possible.
  • Contact an experienced attorney: Second to seeing a doctor, contacting a lawyer is the most important step you can take after a dog bite injury. Our Milwaukee dog bite lawyers can protect your rights and help you obtain compensation.
