Pursuing Compensation After A Dog Bite
Dogs can serve as loyal friends — or even loving family members — but they are still animals with aggressive instincts to protect themselves in the face of danger. Sometimes, these instincts cause even the most loving pet to attack someone without provocation.
At the Law Offices of Rosenberg, Eisenberg & Associates, LLC, an Arlington Heights, Illinois, personal injury law firm, we advocate aggressively on behalf of individuals who have been injured by dog bites, helping clients recover the compensation they need to move forward.
A dog bite injury can be physically and emotionally scarring to anyone who is attacked. These injuries often extend beyond cuts and scratches and may require rehabilitation or even surgery. If you’ve been bitten by a dog that you did not provoke, you may be able to recover compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation costs, any wages lost as a result of the accident, and your pain and suffering.
Illinois has a strict liability doctrine that governs dog bites, holding owners responsible for any injuries caused by their dogs. This law protects individuals who were bitten while on private property, in parks or other public areas, and as a result of leash and fencing violations.
If you have been injured by a dog bite, you have rights. Come in and meet with one of our experienced dog bite attorneys to learn about how we can help you secure full and fair compensation for your injuries at no cost to you unless we win.
