CHICAGO DOG BITE ATTORNEY
Our law firm has been fighting for the rights of the injured Illinois residents for over 35 years.
If you or someone you know was involved in an animal attack or has been a victim of a dog bite, you may be entitled to receive financial compensation for your physical and emotional injuries, scarring, medical expenses, and loss of income due to injury.
A dog bite or an animal attack is certainly an unpleasant event. Moreover, it can be very dangerous or even deadly! Our Chicago dog bite attorneys will research the dog's history to see if any other attacks occurred or if the dog had been involved in dog fighting, protection or security service. We will also investigate whether the dog owner was responsible for the attack.
In Illinois, the law is very strict regarding dog bites and dog attacks. If you haven't trespassed or otherwise provoked the dog to assault you, the owner of the dog (regardless of whether she or he was negligent) is liable for the injury.
The Illinois Animal Control Act clearly states that:
"If a dog or other animal, without provocation, attacks, attempts to attack, or injures any person who is peaceably conducting himself or herself in any place where he or she may lawfully be, the owner of such dog or other animal is liable in civil damages to such person for the full amount of the injury proximately caused thereby."
If you have been bitten or attacked by a dog or other animal call us before you speak with anyone so we can properly advise you of your rights. Most claims go unpaid because the injured person is not represented by an attorney who knows the law in Illinois and understands what you are entitled to. We know your rights and will fight for you.
