Experienced Attorneys Committed To Helping You Recover Maximum Compensation

In Illinois, dog owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by their pets from bites. This means that unless you provoked the animal or were a trespasser, the dog's owner is responsible. In Illinois, the owner of dogs and other animals can even be incurred from their animals running at large.

At Holley, Rosen & Beard, LLC, our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions about dog bite law and explain your options. From our law offices in Springfield, we represent dog bite victims in the communities throughout central Illinois.

Who Pays For Dog Bite Injuries?

Some people are hesitant to file a dog bite injury claim, because the dog's owner is a relative, friend or neighbor. However, in most cases, the dog bite claims are covered by homeowners insurance.

As your lawyers, we work hard to prove the amount of your damages to the insurance company. Insurance companies will typically pay a little as possible, and it often takes a lawyer's help to maximize your compensation. We work with doctors and other professionals to account for both the initial and long-term effects of the injury.

With more than 50 years of legal experience, we know full-well the potential effects of dog bites and other types of injuries. As your attorneys, we will help you understand your options, pursue treatments, get opinions from medical professionals regarding long-term consequences, and get the money you and your family need.
