What Almira Gulch did wrong after Toto bit her

1. Don't handle a dog bite yourself. She tried to take the law into her own hands. Sure, she went to see the Sheriff and got a "signed order" (that's not going to happen nowadays), but then she tried to serve the order herself. It is always best not to seek justice on your own. In some situations, it may be appropriate to contact law enforcement. However, most cases will be resolved in the civil court system.

2. Hence, you need a lawyer. We can track down information about the dog owner and guide you through the process. Do you know how much you scarring is worth? What about paying for medical bills? A lawyer can help.

3. Speaking of medical bills, Ms. Gulch should've been more concerned with seeing a doctor than the Sheriff. Dog bites along with other animal bites have a high risk of infection. A doctor will ensure the wound is properly cleaned and will check for rabies, tetanus, and other infections.

4. Dog bite victims have substantial protection under Kentucky law. Depending on the situation, you could be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering.
