The first thing actually if you're bitten by a dog is to get to a doctor quickly because the doctor knows what to do to report the dog, and it may be that this, particularly if you don’t know the dog, if it's not a neighborhood dog, you have no idea where this dog came from, the authorities need to be notified so that we can find out if that dog is rabid or if it has some other problems with it. Dogs carry diseases in their mouth, so when you're bitten sometimes those diseases come to you and it needs to be tested. So the first thing go to the doctor, get your wounds taken care of or if they're serious you're going to have to be hospitalized then do that and then of course after that you need to start taking steps to try to protect yourself in the event that this is going to be expensive to you. And contact an attorney or contact a friend who can contact an attorney for you.
