If you are bitten by a dog in the state of New York, it is not a bad idea to first and foremost make sure you know whose dog this is. You may not always be in someone else’s house where you know whose dog this is. If you’re in a park or a public setting and you’re bitten by the dog, it’s very important that you immediately say to the dog owner, “Who are you? What’s your name? Give me your information.” It’s similar to being in a car accident. Get all of their information, not just for the purposes necessarily of trying to be compensated for what happened to you, but also so that a proper background check can be done on the dog itself. Make sure the dog doesn’t have rabies, and make sure it’s up-to-date on its shots.
All of these things can be found out if you know the identity of the owner. If you don’t reach out and figure out whose dog this is, there will be extra levels of issues for you to deal with, not just from a medical standpoint, but also for ever being able to get compensated for what happened to you. It’s important to find out whose dog this was immediately.
