Negligence in a Dog Bite Case
The Illinois Animal Control Act governs the law of dog bites and a thorough understanding of its contents is crucial in maximizing recovery. These attacks are often times from Pit Bulls, Rottweilers or Doberman pinchers and can usually be traced to the dog owner’s negligence.
A dog owner’s negligence could include the following:
- Inadequate fencing
- Failure to leash the dog
- Posting signage about dog
Following a dog bite, it is important to record photos, the names and addresses of witnesses, and the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance information. Immediate medical care is also recommended to test for rabies or other potential infections that can develop following the introduction of the dog's saliva into your system.
