Common Mistakes After a Dog Bite Injury
We are often asked about some of the common mistakes people make when they’ve suffered a dog bit injury. Number one, they often avoid medical treatment. In other cases, they often fail to follow through with medical treatment or follow recommendations from their provider. Number three, they give a statement to the insurance companies that are always recorded. We never recommend giving a recorded statement to the insurance companies. Number four, they delay getting an attorney. It’s important to get an attorney immediately. Your attorney in a dog bite case needs to preserve any evidence to make sure it’s not lost, and needs to record the memories of any witnesses to the incident.
Number five, and most importantly, they pick the wrong attorney. It’s important to pick the right kind of attorney – the attorney that has experience in the courtroom and with dog bite cases.
