Dog bites and animal attacks can be traumatic and can cause serious injuries. Unfortunately, dog bites and animal attacks occur too frequently. Over 4.7 million people are injured in the United States every year.  Formerly Illinois adhered to the “one free bite” law, which favored animal owners and relieved them from liability because they were considered “unaware” of an animal’s violent nature. This law, however, was changed by the Animal Control Act. Now if a dog, or another animal, attacks or injures a person, the owner of the animal is liable for the full amount of the injury.

Local municipalities may also have laws that apply to a dog bite case such as leash laws, vaccination requirements, or even restrictions on the ownership of certain breeds. The complexities involved in local and state laws make it wise to contact a skilled animal attack attorney at Zayed Law Offices to help you pursue compensation for your animal attack injuries.

Dog bites nearly always involve the legal issue of premises liability. It is possible to recover significant damages against responsible dog owners, landlords, and even homeowners insurance carriers.

Our services are offered on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that our fees for representing you will be deducted from the final personal injury settlement in your case—or from the damages awarded after a favorable verdict, in the event that your case makes it all the way to court trial. If you aren’t awarded a favorable outcome, then the firm would not collect a fee. 

The statute of limitations is a law that limits the amount of time an injured person has to file a lawsuit in court after an injury. In Illinois, the statute of limitations for dog bites gives an injured person two years from the date of the bite to bring a case in court.
