        AMAZING! I highly recommend this group. We had quite an unusual case, this group was our only glimmer of hope when our options were limited and no one would accept a complicated case. We worked closely with Colin O’Malley and his team. Words cannot do justice to how wonderful they are; highly competent, professional, very responsive, thorough and friendly. Colin went above and beyond to make himself available and to answer all our questions and concerns. If you need an excellent proficient injury lawyer that would fight for you, look no further!

Any time I had questions, Mike was always there to answer and then answer them again if I needed further clarification. Nobody really wants to be put in this position and dealing with a process like mine, but if you absolutely have to, go with him.

        Naperville Dog Bite Attorneys

        Dogs are man’s best friends but sometimes you come across a vicious or untrained dog that causes you serious damage. When innocent people are exposed to vicious animals, serious injuries can occur. If you or a loved one has experienced this, we urge you to reach out to our Naperville dog bite attorneys to get the information you need to start a case to defend your right to full and fair compensation for your injuries and damages. We understand the little details of dog bite cases that make them successful and we’ve handled dozens of cases successfully before. Please don’t wait to get in contact with our office to set up a free consultation to go over your case and get started on the path to justice.

        Illinois Dog Bite Statute of Limitations

        Like every other state in the US, Illinois has a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations in Illinois is two years for most personal injury type of cases. Dog bites are included in the category of personal injury, so you have two years from the day you were attacked or bitten by a dog to bring your claim to receive justice in the form of financial compensation that covers your damages and injuries. If you were to try to bring your case after this two-year statute of limitations, then you would no longer be eligible to receive compensation and would miss out on your justice. We don’t want you to miss out on getting what you deserve, so we hope you give our Naperville dog bite attorneys a call as soon as possible to set up your free consultation.

        Compensation You Can Recover

        There are two main categories of compensation for dog bites: economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages cover all of the things that made you lose money such as medical bills, ambulance rides, medication, surgeries, etc. Especially with dog bites, there might be a need for plastic surgery if there’s a risk of scarring and disfigurement of the face. Non-economic damages include your pain and suffering and loss in life quality. If you do end up with scarring and disfigurement on your hands or face, then you can receive non-economic damages.

        If a young girl was bitten by a dog at the age of four and suffered scarring to her arms and hands and also developed a fear of dogs that lasted throughout life, those are all huge non-economic damages that mean a lot in terms of compensation. The worse an accident affects someone, generally speaking, the higher the compensation award.

        Part of the way that we are sure that you get this full and fair compensation is for you to do your due diligence and get the medical care that you need. You also want to avoid giving recorded statements to the insurance company because all they are going to do is try to wash their hands clean of your case by getting you to say something wrong in a recorded statement so they can use your words against you. Get in contact with Naperville dog bite attorneys before you talk to the insurance company so you can get the results you are entitled to.

        Obstacles We Will Face

        You should be aware that dog owners and property owners who have been deemed to be the liable party in your dog bite case have insurance companies that are used to winning cases against victims who have suffered. You should be aware of some common defenses that they are going to use. The first common defense that they tend to use is that the dog was provoked. The only reason they could be able to get away with using this is if you were doing something like hitting the dog over its head or kicking the dog and it attacked you in defense. Most dog bite cases, however, do not involve this type of instigating behavior. Our Naperville dog bite attorneys are prepared for this defense and most often it is flimsy and with the proper evidence of their inability to protect people like you from the animal we can plow down this defense of theirs.

        If someone were to trespass on the property of the owner of the dogs, however, then they can say that the dog was acting within the law to attack and bite the intruder. Robbers and vandals are not protected from the law if they try to bring a dog bite case. If you were just trying to live your life away from harm of an animal and you get blindsided by a vicious dog, you deserve compensation in the fullest. You don’t deserve to have the liable party blame it on you when it is indeed their fault that their dog came out and attacked you.

        Our Naperville dog bite attorneys care deeply about getting you the justice that you are owed and we will fight tirelessly to exhaust our resources to get you the compensation that you deserve in the fullest and fairest amount.

        Tips for a Successful Dog Bite Claim

        We understand that a common feeling after a dog bite is helplessness. We also want you to know that there are things in your power to make your case successful. After you were bitten or attacked by a dog it’s important to collect any evidence at the scene, such as photos of the dog and the surrounding properties, as well as your injuries. You should also get contact information from the owner and perhaps call authorities to come onto the scene to make an official report because animal control has the ability to tell you whether or not this animal has been properly vaccinated against rabies. Having information regarding whether or not this animal has a rabies vaccination is going to tell your doctor what you should do. If there is reason to believe that the dog has not been vaccinated or the owner doesn’t know, you are likely going to have to go through rabies treatment. 

        This type of treatment needs to start as soon as possible and that means getting yourself to a doctor right away. You don’t want to delay something like this, as the consequences can be severe and lead to an even longer recovery process. A lot of doctors are going to automatically start rabies treatment if you’ve been bit by a dog and they cannot show you that the dog was up-to-date on his vaccinations. We hope that you act with urgency to get the medical treatment that you need because you can suffer infections and scarring, as well as damage to your tendons and nerves.

        Coupled with all of your physical injuries you might be dealing with psychological injuries as well. Especially when the person who was bitten or attacked by a dog is very young, it’s important that you take care of their psychological trauma related to the event so that they don’t have to live their life in fear forever of animals. Dogs are usually great companions and wonderful household pets, and you don’t want someone living their life in fear of them. All of this should be compensated for by the insurance company who represents the liable party.

        It’s our job to help determine who the liable party is in the situation. More often than not, it’s going to be a dog owner or the property owner who was negligent in keeping their dangerous animal secured away from innocent bystanders.
