What should I do if a dog bites me in California?

If a dog bites you, you need to seek medical attention right away. You should also identify the dog and its owner, and also report the dog bite to the sheriff or animal control so there is a record of it. In addition, you should also take photographs and document any injuries.

By following the steps above, you can increase the chance of receiving compensation. A personal injury attorney like Fernando D. Vargas can help secure you compensation for the following:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Scar reduction surgery
  • Therapy and counseling costs
  • Past and future loss of income
  • Emotional pain / mental anguish
  • Physical pain and suffering
