You need to know the steps to take after a dog bite. Yes, you should get an evaluation from a plastic surgeon after a dog bite injury. Sometimes dog bites will leave extensive scars. You may not know if you will need  surgery, but it’s best to be safe and get it checked out. If you don’t get it looked at, and the settlement is complete, you will probably have to pay for it out of pocket at that point. Once a settlement is reached it is final. There are no do-overs.  Plastic surgery tends to be extremely expensive. Overall, getting a plastic surgeon consultation is the way to go to make sure your finances are as protected as possible. The plastic surgeon can tell you if you need surgery, and help you to make decisions. They may also be familiar with legal action in cases like yours.
