Lawyers for Animal Attack Injuries in Naperville and Throughout Illinois

Many families have one or more pets, and even those who do not live with a dog often enjoy spending time with furry friends owned by their family members, friends, or neighbors. Unfortunately, even dogs that seem friendly and have no history of aggression or dangerous behavior can bite or attack someone, leading to serious injuries. Around 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year in the United States, and in around 800,000 of these cases, victims require medical attention. If you or a member of your family have been injured by a dog or other animal, you should consult with an attorney to determine your legal options.

Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices provides dedicated personal injury representation for those who have been injured in dog attacks. Our experienced lawyers can help you understand your rights in these types of cases, and we will work with you to determine the full extent of the damages you have suffered and pursue compensation from the owner of the dog that attacked you.

Legal Help in Dog Bite Cases

The legal issues surrounding a dog bite injury can be complex, depending on the location of the attack, the circumstances surrounding the incident, and the identity of the dog's owner. We can help you understand how Illinois laws regarding dog bite liability affect your situation, and we will work with you to fully document the damages you have suffered in order to place a proper valuation on your case.

No matter the circumstances surrounding your injury, we can provide you with the legal help you need as you pursue compensation. We can assist with:

  • Injuries to children - Due to their small stature and lack of awareness of danger, children are much more likely to be seriously injured by a dog bite. Parents should be sure to understand how a dog attack injury will affect a child's well-being throughout the rest of their life.
  • Dog park attacks - While dog parks allow pet owners to provide their dogs with exercise and socialization, if an animal is not properly supervised, it may attack and injure other people or dogs who are using the facility.
  • Dog bites dog - When a dog attacks and injures or kills another animal, the owner of that animal may be able to recover compensation for property damage such as bills for emergency veterinary care.
  • Unleashed and roaming dogs - When an attack occurs while a dog is "at large," it may be necessary to identify the dog's owner in order to pursue compensation for the damages suffered by the victim.
  • Scars and disfigurement - The wounds suffered in a dog bite can lead to permanent and painful scarring, and extensive reconstructive or cosmetic surgery may be necessary.
  • Nerve damage - Dog bites may damage or sever nerves, which can lead to severe pain, loss of sensation, or paralysis. These injuries can take months or years to fully heal, or they may result in permanent loss of function and disability.
  • Wrongful death and fatalities - When a dog attack results in the death of a victim, the person's surviving family members may pursue compensation for damages such as funeral and burial expenses, loss of companionship, loss of income, and grief and mental anguish.
  • Non-bite injuries - A victim of a dog attack may suffer a wide variety of injuries, even if the dog did not make contact with them. These may include fall injuries, such as broken bones or brain trauma, or injuries suffered in traffic accidents caused by a dog.
  • Aggressive breeds - Certain breeds of dogs, such as pit bulls or Rottweilers, are more likely to be aggressive or dangerous. An owner who did not properly supervise or train this type of dog may be considered negligent.
