What Should I Do After A Dog Attack?


Seek medical attention immediately. If the wound(s) require stiches or sutures request that a plastic surgeon perform the treatment. This may lessen the residual scarring.


Contact local animal control and make a bite report. IMPORTANT!


Obtain the name, address and telephone number of all witnesses. If you know of anyone who has been bitten by the same dog, get their contact information

Follow-up with a plastic surgeon to obtain an opinion on whether scar revision surgery
should be performed.

Testimonials

Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Dear Hugh

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your guidance and support during the litigation process surrounding my Mother's fall in 2010. From the initial interview you and she had,there was an instant rapport developing. Never having gone through a lawsuit before (at the age of 88) you made her feel comfortable and were very gentle with her feelings during the process, yet allowing her to remember the facts as they happened that day.

She would have thanked you from the bottom of her heart for all you did on her behalf by offering professional and credible advice, yet being very personable and caring.

Let me say it for her and for our family- "Thank you from the bottom of my heart".

 

Sincerely,

Karen Elkins
