First Steps: What to Do After a Dog Bite
1. Get Information
Record as much information as possible. Describe the appearance of the dog, the dog breed, where it came from, the location of the attack and the dog owner if possible.
2. Take Photos
Photos will help you a lot in court cases. Make sure you take photographs of the attack scene, of the dog if possible, of your injuries, and of the house/fence conditions if at the dog's home. Details in each photo can be used to help build a strong case.
