Personal Injury Dog Bites

Dog Bite Lawyer

Any dog bite is cause for great concern. Prompt medical attention is essential to be sure the victim is protected against disease and permanent disfigurement. The next big question is, “Should the dog owner be held legally and financially accountable for the attack?” Consulting a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer right away after a dog bite is critical.

Get Focused, Practical Legal Counsel As Soon As Possible

Dedicated personal injury attorney Susan A. Marks has in-depth knowledge of Illinois premises liability law, local ordinances and insurance coverage issues that may be relevant in your case. At our firm, you will benefit from a free case evaluation and assertive, trial-proven protection of your rights.

While vicious dog attacks by pit bulls, Rottweilers and other such known dangerous breeds receive the most media attention, any dog can bite and do serious harm — especially when the victim is a defenseless child. Adults lawfully on someone’s property to visit or perform a service are also frequent victims, sometimes avoiding bites but suffering a serious injury while attempting to flee from a dog.

It is important to recognize that:

  • While evidence that a dog has bitten before may be important to the case, it is not always essential for recovering money to pay medical expenses and address other damages.
  • Fast action to get a qualified lawyer involved is often necessary to ensure the essential evidence is secured.
  • A homeowners policy or other insurance coverage may cover the property owner in the event of a dog attack — so no one should hesitate to evaluate legal options even if the dog owner is a friend or neighbor.
