I was bitten by a dog. What do I do?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Report the incident to your local dog warden or police right away. They can help you gather information about the dog and determine if it has been vaccinated. Call an attorney as soon as possible. Dog bites need to be investigated quickly. There may be a vicious dog hearing if the owner was issued a ticket. The animal may be relocated or even euthanized, making it difficult to investigate its behavior.
