What Should I Do After a Dog Bite Attack?

Posted on: February 8th, 2011       Attorney Thomas Newell

As a Pennsylvania dog attack attorney, I advise everyone who has been bitten by a dog to immediately obtain medical care. Have someone take pictures of your dog bite wounds. As soon as it is safe to do so, I strongly urge you to contact the PA dog warden responsible for the County where the dog attack took place.

Be prepared to provide the dog warden with as many specifics as possible, including names and phone numbers of eyewitnesses. You also have a right to specific information regarding the attacking dog’s rabies vaccination information. Do not give a statement to the dog owner or his/her insurance representatives.
