Dog Bite Risks
Dogs are a great pet to have around. They can be wonderful companions, friends, and protectors. At times, however, dogs attack people. When a dog bites a person, that person faces several risks, including:
- Excessive bleeding
- Permanent scarring
The aftermath of a dog attack may contain surgery, medication, and emotional trauma. Recovery may be complicated, and then, of course, there is always the risk that the same dog who bit you may bite someone else. That’s why you should hire a competent dog bite lawyer.
Dog Bite Law
At the Law Office of Daniel E Goodman, LLC, we are familiar with personal injury law regarding dog bites. The state of Illinois statute of limitations requires that all dog bite cases are brought into court within two years from the date of the bite, so if you plan to file for a lawsuit, it’s best to do it quickly.
Illinois also follows a strict liability policy when it comes to injuries caused by animals. This means that when an animal injures a person unprovoked, the animal’s owner is liable, whether or not they were aware of their animal’s ability to cause injury.
