Dog Bite Lawyer in Peoria, Illinois
If you have been the victim of a dog bite or injured in an animal attack in Central Illinois, you want an aggressive attorney who will help you get full and fair compensation for your injuries. You may be unable to work. You may have huge medical bills. You may need extensive physical therapy or rehab, or other long-term medical care. You want a lawyer who knows the law and who will fight hard to get the compensation you need.
In Illinois, we have a strict liability statute that says that owners of animals who attack others are always responsible for the attack, unless the other party was in some way provoking the animal.
In our practice, we find that homeowners tend to be protected against liability for animal bites, but that renters are not similarly protected. Unfortunately, this often means that the renter gets off scot-free, unless they can afford a judgment out of pocket. Lawmakers are currently weighing a requirement that all dog owners have proof of insurance.
