What To Do If You Are Bitten By a Dog This Summer

What To Do If You Are Bitten By a Dog This Summer

Summer has arrived.  We have been outdoors enjoying the sun, exercising and then the worst occurs, you get bitten by a dog.  What do you do?  Dog bites can cause severe injuries and according to the CDC, there are more than 4.7 million dog bites a year.

So what should you do if you have been injured by a dog attack?  Follow these steps to ensure your health and safety as well as the health and safety of your community.

The sooner you speak to a personal injury attorney regarding your dog bite the better.  Dog owners are responsible for any injury or damage done by the dog.  The passage of time could weaken your claim.  There is also a statute of limitations to think about.  So be sure to contact an attorney who can help you, or someone you love, through this traumatic experience.

Our lawyers here at Karp Steiger can help to guide you through this process.  Please contact us today for any dog bite injury you may have at 216-358-OHIO.  Let us help you!
