Pet owners are liable for bites. Our dog bite attorneys get you paid.
Dog bite attorneys fighting for the maximum compensation you deserve for your injury and damages.
Dog bites and other animal attacks can cause injuries which frequently result in permanent scarring and serious disfigurement. Hiring an animal attack or dog bite attorney to help you navigate the process can save you hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical expenses.
The permanent and lasting impact of animal bites can be devastating and life-altering. For this reason, Illinois has developed strict laws which seek to regulate animal bites so that injured victims can be properly compensated. Call us today if you need help navigating what you’re entitled to.
Liability for Dog Bites & Animal Attacks:
The law in Illinois provides 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. These damages can include payment of all related medical expenses; payment of medical expenses reasonably anticipated to be required in the future; pain and suffering; loss of a normal life; and compensation for disfigurement as a result of the attack or bite.
Many homeowner’s insurance policies and renter’s insurance policies cover injuries caused by pets, so if the animal’s owner was insured, you can frequently submit a claim with the insurance company directly as opposed to dealing solely with the owner. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a result of an animal, it is important to hire an experienced attorney who is capable of investigating and identifying all potential theories of liability in order to obtain a maximum possible recovery.
You should immediately contact the Eames Law Group, Ltd. to discuss your rights and all potential routes to recover the maximum compensation. Hiring an experienced dog bite attorney is critical for winning everything you’re entitled to under Illinois law.
