Common Signs a Dog Might Attack You

Even bites from small dogs can cause devastating damage, which is why people need to know what to look out for to identify when a dog may be dangerous. If you are around a dog that seems tense and is exhibiting any of the following behaviors, you need to be very cautious:

  • Intense Growling
  • Stiff Tail
  • Showing Teeth
  • Licking Lips
  • Flicking Tongue
  • Tense Body
  • Flattened Ears
  • Intense Starring

If you are worried a dog might try to bite you, do not run away. Dogs possess the natural instinct to chase after prey, so running away will only make the animal hunt you down. Instead of running, slowly walk away and try to find a safe area where you can create a barrier between you and the dog.

What to Do if You Are Attacked by a Dog

It’s crucial to seek medical attention as soon as possible following a dog attack. After your injuries have been addressed, take the following steps to get started laying the groundwork for a lawsuit:

  • File a report of the attack with your local animal control agency.
  • Take pictures of any injuries you sustained from the attack.
  • Take pictures of the location where the attack occurred.
  • Write down the names and addresses of anyone who witnessed the attack.
  • Get the name of the dog owner, as well as their insurance policy information.
  • Report the attack to the landlord or store manager if it occurred at a rental property or a retail establishment.
  • Never make any agreement with the owner of the dog and never sign any documents without first speaking to an experienced personal injury lawyer.
