Dog Bites

Each year, millions of innocent people are seriously injured or even suffer wrongful death as a result of dog bite attacks. Being the victim of a dog attack or other pet animal bite can be among the most horrifying experiences a person can endure.  


We represent clients in all types of dog bite and animal attack claims. We understand the types of injuries that can happen in these cases and the type of care that is required to facilitate your recovery. We diligently seek full and fair compensation for your medical care, pain and suffering, future medical care such as reconstructive surgeries and time away from work.  

Under Illinois law, dogs do not get "one free bite" as in some other states. Illinois is a strict liability state — unless the dog bit or attacked because of extreme provocation, the dog owner will be held liable for damages.  

Under the Illinois Animal Control Act, dog owners have the responsibility to maintain control over their dogs through proper training or restraint. When they fail to do so, owners can be held personally liable for the injuries their pets cause. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a dog or other animal attack, you have the right to seek compensation for all your injuries.  

It is our goal to educate you on what to expect when you are a victim of a dog bite injury or animal attack and what to do after you've been bitten.  

If you or a loved one has suffered a dog bite injury or you have a question that has not been answered, call us at 847-244-2660 for a free consultation, or submit a brief summary of your case through our website and we will contact you to discuss your potential lawsuit.
