A dog attack does not necessarily include a bite, and can still result in serious injuries; one form of injury is scarring, which can result in long-term or even permanent complications and significantly impact a person’s quality of life, especially when he/she is scarred in the face or another visible area. If you or a loved one has been injured in a dog bite attack.

We at Mike Agruss Law are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.

Regardless of whether the dog attack included a bite, you may be eligible for compensation for a wide range of injuries, such as scarring, bruising, and broken bones, as well as pain and suffering. Provided that you have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side and the requirements of the Illinois Animal Control Act are met – such as that you did not provoke the dog and were not trespassing when the attack occurred – you may sue the dog’s owner and develop a case to establish that he/she is legally responsible for your injuries and losses. Many dog attack victims worry about the recovery process and whether their injuries will have lasting effects.
