Three Quick "Must Do" Bits of Advice

First, make sure you report the bite.

You have to do this to get  the dog off of the street in case he poses a danger to others.  But also, when police and animal control investigate, we get info and the address of the dog owner.  This also leads to their insurance information, which is an important part of settling your case as fast as possible and for the most we can get.

Second, get photos of your injuries.  

That includes photos of every stage of healing.  We will want to be able to show what the injury looks like on the day it happened.  But also, as it heal, and your scar and eventual outcome after it is fully healed.  Scars are a major type of injury people get, so we should document them with photos.

Third, do not delay seeing a doctor or under treat.

Getting treatment right away means a less visible scar.  And if you want to have a surgical repair or revision of a scar that heals, do not wait too long to talk to a plastic surgeon if the appearance of the scar bothers you or is on a easily visible part of your body.
