What to Do in the Event of a Dog Attack
A Palm Springs dog bite lawyer can provide key assistance in investigating the facts and gathering evidence to prove you were not trespassing, provoking the dog intentionally, or performing a paid service involving the dog at the time of the accident. Conclusively ruling these circumstances out can greatly improve the validity and weight of your claim. However, there are steps you can take to improve the likelihood of receiving compensation even before an attorney is involved.
If you are bitten by a dog, it is important that you promptly:
- Get the name, address, and contact information of the dog owner
- Take down the contact information of any witnesses to the attack
- Photograph your injuries
- Seek medical care
- File a report with your local animal control

Unfortunately, dog bites can cause more damage than the physical wounds you sustain. Being attacked by an animal can cause severe emotional trauma that leaves a lasting anxiety and fear of other dogs. Because of this, the laws surrounding dog bites change if a child is involved.
Christopher can provide invaluable assistance in pursuing compensation for:
- Medical costs – initial treatment, rehabilitation, and psychological therapy
- Emotional distress
- Lost wages or loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
You didn’t choose to be a victim, but you can choose where to go from here. Call (760) 537-4457 to take the first step towards reclaiming your future.
