Animal Attack Attorney in Rockford, IL
Animal bite injuries can be severe and even cause deformation. In Illinois, the most common type of animal bite comes from dogs.
Have you been bitten or attacked by an animal?
For twenty years, our attorneys have worked on injury cases that stemmed from a dog bite. If you have been bitten by a dog, you are certainly entitled to compensation for your injuries as well as for any loss of work, loss of a normal life, or pain and suffering. The key to animal attack litigation is to work with a lawyer as soon as possible, as time limits do exist.
Dog Bites in Illinois
Illinois lawyers see a lot of dog bite cases. However, not every law firm chooses to enter a courtroom to advocate for their client’s needs. At MacCloskey Kesler and Associates, we are ready to go to trial to get you the compensation you deserve.
Dog bite cases can be tried with one of two theories: Common Law and our state-specific Illinois Animal Control Act. In both theories, the owners of the animal are responsible for both the dog and the dog’s behavior. Your injury or injuries are the results of the owner’s negligence. Our team works to advocate for you so that you can receive compensation that covers your medical expenses, lost wages, adaptive equipment, or pain and suffering.
Beyond Monetary Compensation
Our firm has roots in personal injury, and we have always committed to forming a lasting relationship with our clients. We aim to advocate for our clients in the courtroom as well as helping them live the best life possible after their injury. In past dog bite cases, we have gone to Rockford area plastic surgeons to develop a plan for clients who have had their bodies negatively altered from the bite and subsequent procedures. Our clients expect serious law guidance but are often surprised at how much further we are willing to go to assure they are healthy long past when they leave our doors.
