In Illinois, dog owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by their pets. If you were bitten by a dog or an animal, you have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries from the animal owner. Many of the owners know of their dogs' violent propensities and have had continuing problems with their dogs.

Illinois Dog Bite Injury Attorneys
Sadly, the majority of people injured by dogs in Illinois and elsewhere in the United States are children. Whether you or your child has been bitten by a dog, it is important to work with an attorney who understands the severity of the injury and the short- and long-term impact it can have on the injury victim's life.
Dog bites can have severe consequences, including:
- Puncture wounds
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Psychological injuries
Biting is not the only way a dog can injure a person. Many people have suffered injuries after being knocked down by large dogs that jump up on them. Elderly people are especially vulnerable to this type of injury.
Our attorneys represent people who have suffered injuries from dog bites, dog knock downs and attacks from other animals such as horses and birds. We have a proven record of success and can help you pursue fair and just compensation for the losses you have suffered.
