Dog bites often result in serious injuries - including disfigurement and infection - which is why your first step after a dog bite should be to seek immediate medical attention. Calling 911, or having a family member or friend take you to the hospital is very important. Many dog bites are worse than they appear..

At the doctor's office, be sure you are checked for rabies. Rabid animals may be more prone to attack, and if rabies is left untreated, it can result in extreme pain, convulsions, and even death. You will also want your doctor to check for signs of infection. Dogs' mouths carry millions of germs, and untreated infections can lead to serious medical conditions that might result in consequences as drastic as amputation.

Protecting Your Rights After a Dog Bite

Once you have sought proper medical attention, there are several other steps you should take to ensure the dangerous animal that attacked you is prevented from harming others, and that you are fully compensated for your injuries. The following steps should take place as soon as possible after the attack:

  • Get the dog owner's name, address, and homeowner insurance policy information
  • Report the attack to Oklahoma animal control
  • Research the dog's history to establish if it has attacked people in the past
  • Work with Oklahoma animal control to ensure the dog is quarantined
  • Take pictures of your injury
  • Obtain copies of your medical reports

With the pictures and your medical reports in hand, contact experienced dog bite attorney James Self to have your case evaluated. Dog bites can have a significant impact on your finances, with medical bills and potential rehabilitation costs piling up. They may also interfere with your ability to work, resulting in loss of income. Worse still, dog bites can have long-term emotional consequences, particularly for children.

All of these factors should be taken into account when you are pursuing compensation. Our Oklahoma attorneys at Self & Associates can provide you with the advice you need to make informed legal decisions. We can build a solid personal injurycase for you that will help you secure the justice and compensation you deserve.

If you or your child have been attacked by an uncontrolled animal in the state of Oklahoma, please contact experienced dog bite attorney James Self at Self & Associates today for a free initial consultation. Proudly serving Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Edmond, Norman and Midwest City areas.
