There are things you must not do after a dog attack

You are focused on recovering from your recent dog bite injury. You want to get better and to continue the things that you enjoyed prior to the time that you were hurt by a dog. Yet you may inadvertently be taking actions that are sabotaging your own recovery. It is important to be aware of such actions—or inactions—so that you can avoid them and get the recovery that you deserve.

Don’t Do These Things After a Dog Bite Injury

You may be jeopardizing your potential recovery if you:

  • Fail to follow through on all of your doctor’s orders. While you may be eager to return to school or work and you may want to stop going to the doctor, it is important to follow all of your doctor’s advice.
  • Neglect your emotional wellbeing. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety are common after dog bite injuries and should not be neglected in children or adults.
  • Fail to preserve evidence. This includes identifying witnesses to the accident and preserving things such as photos and video.
  • Talk directly with the dog’s owner or the insurance company. You may say something that could harm your recovery.
  • Delay contacting an experienced Milwaukee personal injury lawyer. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the sooner your attorney can get to work protecting your rights and possible recovery.

Life gets busy and important decisions need to be made every day. However, it is also important to keep your long-term recovery in mind and to avoid mistakes that could cost you your fair recovery.
