Dog bite injuries can be devastating, both physically and emotionally. At the Chicago injury firm Zneimer & Zneimer PC, our experienced attorneys understand the pain and trauma that can come with a dog bite, and we are dedicated to helping clients receive the compensation they deserve under Illinois law.
Under the Illinois Animal Control Act, dog owners are strictly liable for any injuries caused by their dogs. This means that if a dog bites someone, the owner is responsible for paying damages, regardless of whether the dog has a history of aggression or not. It is important to note that the Act defines “owner” broadly, and can include not only the dog’s owner but also anyone who has control or custody of the dog.
Complications from dog bites can be severe, and may include infection, nerve damage, scarring, and disfigurement. In some cases, a victim may require multiple surgeries or long-term medical care. Our attorneys understand the long-term impact that dog bite injuries can have on a victim’s life, and we are committed to helping our clients receive the compensation they deserve for their injuries.
In addition to compensatory damages for medical expenses and lost wages, victims may also be entitled to damages for pain and suffering. Our attorneys have a proven track record of successfully representing clients in dog bite injury cases, and we will work tirelessly to ensure you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries.
