Lakeland Dog Bite Attorneys

After suffering from a dog bite accident, there are numerous actions one should take in order to protect a claim for compensation. However, first and foremost, ensure safety by removing yourself from the situation and immediately calling the police. When the police do arrive, it is important to tell them exactly what happened in as much detail as possible. This includes giving them the names and contact information of anyone who may have witnessed the dog bite accident. In addition, the police will ask for details on the dog that bit you. Remember, when providing the police with this information, the more details you can provide, the stronger your dog bite accident claim will be.

Next, regardless of how serious you think your dog bite accident injuries are, always seek medical treatment. When meeting with your doctor, be sure to provide the details of the dog bite accident, along with reporting any pain you feel no matter how minor it may appear. This is particularly important as what now feels like a minor pain may be a sign of future complications that can be included in your claim for compensation.

Another key point to remember is to never talk to any insurance claims adjuster. It is very likely that the dog owner’s insurance company will contact you and ask for a statement on the dog bite accident and your injuries. Remember, the dog owner’s insurance company’s job is to do everything it can to minimize the compensation you collect, including using your statements out of context in order to limit your compensation.

Instead of trying to resolve your dog bite accident claim yourself, it is highly recommended to seek the advice of an experienced Polk County dog bite accident attorney. The dog owner’s insurance company has probably already started to build its case against you, so protect your legal interests by calling your dog bite accident attorney today.
