Illinois dog bite injury lawyerWhen we think about serious injuries caused by dogs, we usually think about bite-related injuries. Dog bites can cause severe tissue damage, nerve damage, infection, and lasting disfigurement. However, even something as seemingly simple as being pushed to the ground by a dog can also lead to serious injuries. Someone who is knocked down by a dog and hits their head on the ground may even suffer a traumatic brain injury.

If you or a loved one suffered any injury because of a dog attack, you may be able to recover financial compensation for your losses. This can include medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. To learn more about the legal options available to you in this situation, contact an experienced dog bite lawyer today. They can review the details of your case and help you determine how best to proceed with pursuing a claim for compensation.

Consequences of a Traumatic Brain Injury Caused by a Dog Attack

The consequences of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) resulting from a dog attack can be devastating. Depending on the severity of the brain injury, it can cause physical, cognitive, and emotional changes that may require long-term treatment and rehabilitation. Some of the most common symptoms associated with TBIs include headaches and dizziness, difficulty sleeping, changes in vision, mood swings, trouble concentrating and remembering things, speech difficulties, and more.

The costs associated with treating a TBI can quickly add up. In addition to medical expenses, you may also need ongoing physical therapy or occupational therapy to help manage the symptoms of your brain injury. You may also experience financial difficulty from being unable to work while recovering from your injury.

Personal Injury Claims Involving Dog Attacks

In Illinois, dog owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by their dogs. This means that even if the dog has never attacked anyone before and the owner had no reason to believe it was dangerous, they can be held liable for any injuries caused. If a dog attack lead to your traumatic brain injury, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the dog’s owner in order to recover compensation for your medical bills and other losses. The main exceptions to this rule are instances involving trespassing or intentional provocation of the dog.

Your attorney can help you to build a strong case in order to prove the dog owner’s liability and calculate your financial losses. They may also be able to negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, so that you don’t have to worry about dealing with them directly.
