Tips to Prevent Dog Bites

I found the following on the wonderfully comprehensive personal injury law web site of Edward Smith who is a personal injury attorney in San Jose, California.  On his web site attorney Smith provides great information on dog bites.  Here are some tips to avoid a dog bite and/or dog attack, and I am aware that some dog owners may scoff at these ideas:

– Never approach an unfamiliar dog

– Never run from a dog and scream

– Stay still when an unfamiliar dog comes up to you

– If knocked over by a dog, roll into a ball and lie still

– Do not look a dog in the eye

– Never leave a child or infant alone with a dog

– Do not play aggressive games with your dog, such as wrestling

I invite you to contact me with any Massachusetts dog bite questions and concerns you may have.
