Asking the Dog Owner Questions
Are you unsure if you should talk to the owner after a dog bite? Find out how asking the dog owner questions can protect your claim, and maximize recovery.
What questions should I ask the dog owner after a bite?
If you’re bit by a dog and the owner or handler of the dog is available, the first and most important question you want to ask is whether that dog is up to date in its rabies vaccine and other shots. There’s nothing more important than your health, so your first focus should be on getting the information that you’ll need to provide to your doctor, so that you can get the proper medical care. Beyond that, if you’re able to at that time, you want to ask that owner about about the dog including the dog’s name, how old the dog is, how long they’ve had the dog, and whether that dog has ever attacked or bitten anyone in the past.
