ANIMAL BITE: What should I do if an animal bites me?

The first thing you should do if you are bitten by an animal is to seek medical attention immediately. If you are not treated medically, an animal bite can cause serious injury, infection, and even death if the animal was diseased.   You have to be careful!

Once you have been medically evaluated, you should also consider consulting a lawyer with experience in animal bite cases in California. An attorney will be able to tell you whether you have a legal claim, and what damages you may be able to recover; and, against whom (or what entity).
