Waukegan Dog Bite Injuries Lawyer in Lake County, IL
Even though dogs are “man’s best friend,” they are still animals. That means they remain prone to sudden, uncharacteristic, and sometimes violent behaviors that can cause serious injury. That includes attacking people. Dogs can and do bite, scratch, and jump on people with alarming frequency, leaving millions of Americans with serious injuries and disfigurement every year. If the dog is particularly strong, large, or aggressive, or if the victim is young, elderly, or otherwise vulnerable, an attack can prove fatal.
If someone is hurt or killed in a car accident, the victim can file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent driver. If someone is hurt or killed by a defective or dangerous product, they can file a product liability suit seeking compensation from the manufacturer. And if a dog attacks and injures someone, the victim can sue and seek compensation from the dog’s owner under certain circumstances.
That is because dog attack victims should not have to bear the costs and burdens that follow, such as medical bills, rehabilitation, reconstructive surgery, lost wages, psychological trauma, and pain and suffering.
