What To Do Following a Dog Bite or Dog-Related Injury

Listen as Kissimmee personal injury lawyer, Michelle Incandela discusses what you should after you are bitten or injured by a dog in Florida. 

Most importantly, health and safety should come first.  Ensure that you are out of danger and in a safe place.  Additionally, seek medical attention for any injuries sustained in the attack.

You will want to get the contact information for the dog owner immediately following the incident with the dog.  Additionally, it is a good idea to seek out the vaccine records and as much relevant information as possible regarding the dog and its owner.  We recommend taking pictures of the dog and the surroundings to better help you document the event. 

Finally, you may want to report the incident to animal control or the appropriate agency in your area.  After doing so, obtain any official documents available from the agency regarding the report.  Watch the video to learn more.

In This Section


I have engaged Draper Law Offices for three (3) different accidents.  My experience with this firm has been excellent each time, with positive results in my favor.  Charles Draper kept me informed throughout the process of each claim.  He was always available when ever I needed him to answer any questions.
The staff could not have been more courteous and helpful to me.  They never made me feel that I was bothering them (and I called quite a lot, believe me).  After a while they seemed like family.
I certainly would engage Draper Law Office (Charles Draper) if another problem would occur.
My recommendation to other people as to Draper Law Office would be “FIRST” on my list.
They are true and loyal to their clients.
I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
