Dog Bites Lawyers in Chicago, IL
Dog Bites Overview
The victims of dog bites often are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. They may not have even been aware that a dog was present before the attack occurred. The Chicago dog bite attorneys at Grazian & Volpe, P.C., understand the questions common to victims of dog bites.
While dangerous breeds such as pit bulls seem to get most of the attention in dog bite cases, any dog could be dangerous. The family dog may jump up to greet a visitor and end up knocking him or her over. A dog that has never demonstrated any violent tendencies may suddenly turn aggressive when it feels threatened.
Many dog bite cases can cause significant medical expenses. It is not uncommon for victims to suffer bites to their face, neck and hands. Often, the attacks will also leave the victims with severe scarring and disfigurement, which may require additional surgeries to correct. Infections are also frequent, due to the bacteria present in the dog's mouth.
The law in Illinois has made it easier for the victims of dog bites to recover compensation for their injuries. If the victim did not provoke the dog, it will be extremely difficult for the owner to avoid responsibility for the dog's actions.
These cases often involve homeowner's insurance policies. Prior to starting this firm, the personal injury lawyers at Grazian and Volpe represented insurance companies in personal injury matters.
