Dog Bite Injury Tips and Tools: What do I do after a dog attack in Maine?
The most important thing to do after a dog attack is to make sure you and any other individuals harmed by the dog seek medical attention. As soon as possible after you receive medical care, taking the following steps can help support your claim in the event that you need to file a personal injury lawsuit:
- Alert local police and/or animal control
- Obtain contact information for any witnesses
- Identify the dog and the animal’s owner if possible
- Take photos and/or video of your injuries and, if possible, the location where the incident occurred
- Do not give statements to the owner or caretaker of the animal or talk to their insurance company without first consulting with an attorney
