Rockford, IL Dog Bite Injury Lawyers

Stephenson County Dog Bite Injury Lawsuit Lawyer

Winnebago County Attorneys Holding Dog and Animal Owners Accountable

According to the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF), nearly five million Americans are bitten by dogs each year, and about one out of five dog bite victims require medical attention. The AVMF report goes on to say that children are the most common victims, and they are far more likely to suffer severe injuries as a result. The majority of these injuries occur because of unrestrained dogs on the property of the dog owner. If you or someone close to you has been the victim of a dog bite or animal attack while on the property of another party, you may have a right to compensation.

Dog Bite Injuries in Illinois

Injuries from dog bites and other types of animal attacks can vary in severity. Some of the most common injuries include:

  • Scarring and tissue loss
  • Rabies and other types of infections
  • Severe bruises
  • Lacerations
  • Puncture wounds
  • Loss of blood
  • Nerve damage

Under the Illinois Animal Control Act, pet owners can be held liable for injuries and damages resulting from an attack by an unprovoked animal. The law is applicable even if the animal attacks the victim without biting them. If the dog bite or animal attack occurs on the property of the animal owner, it may also become a premises liability case. Under premises liability law, property owners have a duty to ensure that their property is safe and free of hazards such as dangerous animals.
