What Should You Do When Animal Bite Injuries Occur?

The majority of pet owners these days are highly responsible and take great care to keep their animals from causing any harm to other individuals. Unfortunately, there are some instances where animal bite injuries do occur, and it is important to know how to handle those situations. At Lucé Law, PC we are committed to fighting for the compensation that an injured party deserves, so if you have been a victim of an animal bite, read on for what you should do.

Collect Information

If possible, you should get the name and phone number of the animal’s owner as soon as you possibly can. Whether you decide to ask for compensation or not, it’s important to have contact information for insurance purposes as well. Animal bite injuries can often require medical attention, and many medical facilities will document what kind of animal caused the attack and ask you for the owner’s contact information.

Report the Incident

It can be tempting to think that you’ll just brush off the incident and worry about it another time, but without the proper reporting you can end up without the paperwork that your McKinney attorney may need in order to provide you with the best possible representation. If the animal that bit you was not licensed, the authorities should be notified so that they can deal with the situation properly.

In order to seek the most compensation possible for animal bite injuries, contact Lucé Law, PC online or call (972) 632-1300 as soon as you can so that we can start working for you.
