If you or a loved one has been attacked by an animal such as a dog or other animal, the first step you should take is to obtain appropriate medical assistance. More than anything else, your health and well-being are vital if you are going to recover. Secondly, you should ensure that a report has been filed with the proper law enforcement agency to document the facts of your attack.
Whenever an animal attacks a human, the animal is required to be tested for rabies, if possible, so that appropriate treatment can be taken. Identifying and holding the offending animal pending an investigation should be done. Because there will be many complex areas of the investigation and treatment of your injury, it is vital you contact an animal attacks lawyer to safeguard your rights.
