In the USA, a dog owner usually is legally liable to pay full compensation to a dog bite victim. The money for this comes from homeowners insurance and renters insurance, provided that the dog owner has it.

It is important to identify the animal that bit you, because if it is a stray and you cannot identify it, you’re facing the possibility of having to submit to treatment for rabies, which can be painful. Also, if you were attacked by a dog or any wild animal being kept by a person, you probably are entitled to receive compensation from the animal’s owner, and you might really need that compensation to pay your medical bills, reimburse you for lost income, pay for cosmetic surgery in the future, and help you overcome the pain and suffering from your injuries. After that, get medical attention.
