Rockford Lawyers For Victims Of Dog Bite Injuries
Most pet owners in Illinois train their pets not to bite, scratch or jump up on others. Pet owners generally try to give their pets good living conditions that do not lead to violent dispositions in the animals. There are exceptions, however, and sometimes negligence on the part of pet owners leads to serious injuries to other people, including children.

If you or a loved one has been harmed due to an unprovoked attack, we can help you seek compensation for the resulting costs, including medical treatment, psychiatric treatment and any cosmetic surgery that may be necessary.

Illinois Law Specifically Covers Dog Bites
When it comes to dog bites, Illinois is a “strict liability” state. That means that if a dog attacks someone without provocation, the dog owner is strictly liable for any resulting injuries, even if the owner claims to have no prior knowledge of the dog’s violent tendencies.
This strict liability applies to dog bite injuries and to other injuries caused by pets, including knockdown injuries.
