A dog’s mouth is filled with bacteria that is harmful to humans. When a dog bites and breaks through a person’s skin, that bacteria can make the victim quite sick. For this reason, after a dog bite, you should seek medical attention right away. This medical care can also help prove the damages you sustained as a result of the attack. Also, make sure to keep any damaged or bloodied clothing, and take pictures of your injuries. If there were witnesses, write down their names and contact information and try to get the homeowner’s insurance information. Lastly, contact animal control to report the attack so the dog can be documented as a dangerous dog.
