What to do: Dog Bite September 23, 2008

I’ve written a lot about dog bites and my experience with litigating cases where pit bulls and other dogs have attacked and injured kids and adults.  

But, right after the dog attacks what are you to do?  I found this helpful check list written by a Doctor that is pretty easy to read.  Knowing what do to after a dog bite should take some of the stress out of the already very stressful situation.

You may have read my previous posts about dog bites/attacks.  Here’s a link about a case I handled for a victim of a pit bull attack.

This case involved an interesting issue regarding Wisconsin’s Dob Bite Law.  As you probably know, in Wisconsin if a dog previously causes injury or property damage then all subsequent recoveries are doubled.  But, what exactly is damage?  Is a hole in someone’s jeans damage?  How about a dog pulling at someone’s jeans without a hole?

It was a unique case and, like usual, the at-fault insurance company blamed the victim for bending down to pet the dog!  The jury didn’t buy their argument. 

FYI: The juries verdict was actually about $18,375 which included costs awarded by the court and taxed against the at fault insurance company.
