What to Do If Your Dog Attacks or Bites Someone
If your dog bites someone it is important to take the following steps:
Confine your dog to an area away from people or other animals.
Help the victim tend to the wound, and contact medical professionals if necessary.
Exchange contact information with the victim as well as any witnesses, and provide insurance details (if you happen to carry such coverage).
Contact local animal control authorities or the police to report the incident.
Do not admit fault or lay blame, and contact an attorney right away.
