Who to contact in case of a dog bite?

To prove a dog attack case, it is essential to swiftly gather evidence and seek out an experienced dog bite injury attorney. Our Sacramento dog bite injury attorneys have decades of experience in thoroughly investigating cases like these.

Getting attacked by an animal can emotionally and physically devastating. If you are attacked by an animal:

  1. Try to identify the dog and his owner (take a picture of the dog with your cell phone if possible).
  2. Seek medical attention immediately. Even if the injury appears to be mild, there is a serious risk of infection from any animal bite. If the bite was caused by a stray dog that cannot be identified, you may have to undergo a series of rabies shots as a precautionary measure.
  3. Report the attack to the local health department, animal control, and police department.
  4. Document the injuries and keep detailed health records.
