Chicago Dog Bite Lawyer
If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, there might be severe and long lasting injuries. You may need legal representation in order to get the level of compensation you need to recover fully from this ordeal.
If you are living in Chicago, you are sharing your city with a lot of animals. Though pets still don’t outnumber the people, it has been estimated that there are over one million dogs in Chicago alone. Most can be considered man’s best friend. Unfortunately, there are a number of aggressive dogs that will attack and bite. Adults aren’t the only victims; children are more often mauled. If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, there might be severe and long lasting injuries. You may need legal representation in order to get the level of compensation you need to recover fully from this ordeal.
If a dog bites you what will you do?
- Get away from the dog. You may be injured, angry or afraid, but the best way to avoid further injury is to get some place safe.
- Call the police. A detailed police report will help you when you seek recompense from the dogs’ owner.
- Seek medical attention. Your injury may require stitches. If the injury is small, you still need medical attention. Dogs don’t brush their teeth. Their mouths are teeming with harmful bacteria. Your wound will need to be thoroughly cleaned and you may need to go on a series of antibiotics.
- When the dog owner’s insurance company calls, do not speak with them. They will try to offer you a settlement far below what you need to recover.
- Call Willens Law Offices and let us fight for you.
