Kewanee Dog Bite Attorney

Decades of Service in Illinois Personal Injury Cases

More households have dogs than any other animal in the United States, which is why states like Illinois have strict laws that apply to dogs. The main Illinois dog bite law states that if a person is bitten on public or private property, which they’re legally allowed to be on, then the dog owner must assume full responsibility. At Rehn Law LLC, our Kewanee dog bite attorney is knowledgeable on state laws and is committed to holding dog owners responsible when their pets have attacked our clients. If you or a loved one has been bitten and is suffering from injuries, you’re not on your own. We can represent your case and achieve your desired compensation so your recovery can be smooth and effective. Even if your bite was an accident, dog owners still have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for others.

Call (309) 228-2008 or contact us online today to speak with a caring team member regarding your dog bite case in a free consultation. We strive to put our clients’ needs first in all that we do.

Common Dog Bite Injuries

While some may think dog bite injuries are minor, they can often turn into more serious injuries that require medical treatment as well as psychological treatment due to trauma. Injuries can include puncture wounds, broken bones, eye injuries, scars, nerve damage, and rabies. It’s important to seek medical attention after a dog attack, even when you may think you’re uninjured. Dog bites may also become infected if left untreated.

Upon seeking medical treatment, it’s important to collect as much evidence as possible that you can use in your personal injury claim. One way you can have solid documentation is by reporting the dog bite to Animal Control or Humane Society, which can produce an incident report. If you hire our dog bite attorney, we can handle the evidence collection process so you can focus on what matters most: healing.

Proving Liability in a Dog Bite Case

To win your dog bite case and recover damages, you must prove that the other party involved was liable and that the attack directly caused your injuries. Our lawyer can advocate for you by using what information or details you can provide.

Important information you may want to provide upon meeting with a lawyer includes:

  • Who owned the dog
  • When and where the accident occurred
  • Whether you filed a report with Animal Control or Humane Society
  • Medical documents and bills resulting from your treatment

The more tangible evidence you can provide, the more easily an attorney can build a case strategy that can hold the dog owner responsible.

How We Can Help

With more than 20 years of legal experience, our attorney understands what is needed to secure fair and full compensation for clients. While dog bites may seem minor, that can cause financial expenses that victims aren’t prepared to pay out of pocket for.

When we help you file your personal injury claim, we can use our resources and experience to recover the following:

  • Medical bills, including ambulance rides, prescription medications, hospital stays, and aftercare like physical therapy. Many dog bite victims have to pay thousands of dollars to undergo reconstructive surgery for their injuries, especially if they were bitten on the face.
  • Lost wages and future earning capacity from having to miss work or quit your job due to injuries
  • General damages, also known as pain and suffering

Dog attacks can also create emotional trauma that stays with victims for the rest of their lives, requiring lifelong therapy. We can achieve compensation that would pay for therapy, too, as emotional injuries can be just as harmful as physical injuries.

Call (309) 228-2008 to get in touch with our Kewanee dog bite attorney today. The sooner we get started on your case, the sooner you can receive the compensation you need to regain control of your life and move on.
