For Dog Bite Victims And Their Families

Dog bites and other animal attacks can result in serious injuries. Under Illinois law, the owner of the animal is usually legally responsible for expenses connected to those injuries.

To ensure that you get the compensation you deserve from the owner when you are bitten by a dog or other animal, call the Chicago personal injury firm of Mark L. Karno & Associates, LLC today at 312-574-3362 for a free case consultation with our experienced injury attorneys.

Recovery In Your Dog Bite Case

Even minor injuries in dog bite cases can result in long-term emotional suffering. More severe physical injuries, including infections or scarring from puncture wounds, can require extensive medical care. In your dog bite case, you may be entitled to recover damages for:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost employment
  • Disfigurement
  • Mental anguish and post-traumatic stress

Although almost 4.5 million Americans suffer dog bites every year, only about 16,000 of those victims will receive compensation for their injuries. Take steps to make sure you get the money you need to recover from your injuries.

Get An Experienced Attorney On Your Side

An experienced dog bite lawyer can help you understand your legal options and pursue the responsible parties in your dog bite claim. You shouldn’t have to pay for medical bills that are the direct result of someone else’s negligence in training or taking care of a dog.

Some victims are hesitant in filing a lawsuit to pursue compensation because the aggressive dog was owned by a friend, neighbor or associate. In most cases, however, the dog owner is not paying for your medical expenses out of pocket. They often have a homeowners’ insurance policy, and his or her insurance provider is responsible for reimbursing you for your medical expenses.
