Chicago Dog Bite Lawyer
If you have been bitten by a dog in the state of Illinois, it is important that you talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer. Illinois follows the doctrine of strict liability. In Illinois, a dog owner is always responsible for injuries caused by the dog, unless the injured person provoked the animal. If you have been injured by a dog or as the result of an animal attack, contact attorney Joseph G. Klest to learn about your legal rights.
Dog bites and animal attacks often result in significant physical injury, including scarring and disfigurement. Many times, the victim of a dog bite or animal attack is an innocent child. Nonetheless, the costs of medical care, including rehabilitation and plastic surgery, can be exorbitant. Attorney Joseph G. Klest has considerable experience successfully representing 'dog bite' victims and animal attack survivors throughout metropolitan Chicago, including in Chicago's many forest preserves and along the Lake Michigan shoreline. He aggressively advocates for clients, helping them recover full and fair compensation for medical bills, lost wages or income, costs of rehabilitation, and pain and suffering.
