Know your legal options after a dog attack in Illinois

There are millions of people in America who have pet dogs, so it can be difficult to see how these animals can present a danger. The whole concept of "man's best friend" can leave many people with a false sense of security around dogs. Unfortunately, dogs can and will attack people in certain situations. These incidents can leave Illinois residents with serious injuries and, in the worst-case scenarios, life-altering deformities.

Fortunately, even in the worst of circumstances involving a dog attack, injured victims may have legal options. Illinois has particularly strict laws when it comes to dog attacks, meaning that the owner of a dog can be held accountable for dog attacks in almost any situation. Of course, each dog attack incident has its own facts to consider, so anyone who has been injured in a dog attack will need to get more information about their own unique situation.

Children, in particular, can be in danger around dogs. Children may not appreciate the danger that a dog can present and may mistakenly startle a dog or otherwise cause a dog to become defensive. A dog attack on a child can be particularly tragic, leaving the child with lifelong scars from the incident.

At our law firm, we understand that Illinois residents will likely need to explore their legal options after being a victim of a dog attack. The aftermath of such an attack can be confusing, full of emotional and physical turmoil for the victim.
