Chicago Dog Bite Lawyer

Pet owners are expected to maintain control of their animal at all times, and if that pet causes damage, the responsibility for those damages falls to the pet owner. In Illinois, dog owners don't get "one free bite." When a pet attacks and injures someone, it is not necessary to show proof of previous aggressive behavior.

At Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, in Chicago, our attorneys represent clients throughout the state in dog bite and premises liability claims. We are trial lawyers with an unwavering commitment to getting full and fair compensation for our clients. If you or someone you love has been attacked by a dog or another pet, contact us.

Understanding The Responsibilities Of Dog Owners

Victims of dog bites often face a serious and painful road to recovery. These victims are often children who suffer unnecessarily because someone else was careless, irresponsible or negligent in maintaining safe control of a dog. While our firm may not be able to alleviate the emotional and physical toll of a dog bite injury, we can make sure you recover the financial resources you need.

Not every dog attack is from a large or aggressive breed such as a pit bull, Doberman or German shepherd. Even smaller dogs can cause serious injuries such as:

  • Scarring
  • Mauling
  • Disfigurement
  • Nerve damage
  • Broken bones
  • Infections
  • Lacerations

As an experienced catastrophic injury and premises liability law firm, we know how to pursue compensation for medical costs, lost wages, reconstructive surgery and other damages. We offer guidance based on decades of experience that includes substantial verdicts and settlements for seriously injured clients.
