A person that has been bitten by an animal may have legal rights to recover any damages caused by the animal’s owner or responsible party. You must first seek medical attention immediately. If left untreated the animal bite can cause serious injury, infection, and sometimes death if the animal was diseased. Once evaluated seek a lawyer to determine if you have a legal claim and see what damages you may be able to recover. Try to have detailed information about the attack, the animal’s owner and contact information, and any witnesses.

Stay hydrated as much as possible by consuming fluids. A claimant must prove the food consumed was the same food that was contaminated and made you ill. It is easier to prove if many other people consumed the same food and presented the same issues.
