Chicago Dog Bite Attorney

Chicago Dog Bite Attorney

Have you or your loved one been injured by a dog bite or knocked down by a dog in Illinois? Are you asking for compensation for your medical expenses, pain or suffering, lost wages, and other expenses?

If yes, the Tschiggfrie Legal Chicago dog bite lawyers are prepared to fight for your rights. We understand the difficulties and costs of cases of personal injury from dog bites and other animal-related accidents, from years of experience, and will help you recover your rightful compensation.

Illinois’ Dog Bite Liability

Illinois has a couple of laws that have to do with dog bites and when the owner is liable. To win a Chicago dog bite case, the victim must establish that he or she has not triggered or provoked the animal, but the defendant will try to show that there is insufficient evidence that the dog has not been provoked or that he or she has given contradictory proof. That's why it is important to have the backing of an experienced attorney.

Injuries caused by Dog Bites

A dog can inflict lots of damage pretty quickly. Children and old age people are most vulnerable to serious injuries because they often can’t run away or fight off the animal. Kids typically suffer injuries on the face due to their short height, and they also tend to experience the worst mental trauma.

After a dog bite in Chicago, kids usually develop a life time fear and phobia of dogs and stop playing from their own family pet dogs. Our attorneys have to make sure any injury is accounted for in your claim, whether it’s physical or psychological.

Dog bite injuries can include the following:

  • Loss of eyesight

  • Scarring and scratches

  • Damage to nerve

  • Loss of fingers, toes, and other important body parts

  • Loss of blood

  • Damage to organ

  • Broken bones

  • Emotional trauma

  • Death

Compensation for Chicago Dog Bite Victims

When we determine the injuries, each injury you have sustained must be given a monetary value. For hospital bills and wage reductions, this is fairly simple, but the intangible harm is more difficult to assess.


We will provide evidence and estimate a cost for these intangible costs, consulting with the medical and mental health professionals, as well. Everything that shifts for the worse in your life is worth making your dog bite claim in Chicago.

To help you recover the compensation you deserve, we will include the following in the claim:

  • Urgent and long-term medical expense

  • The present and any future loss of income

  • Car, home, or workplace disability accommodations

  • Pain and suffering 

  • Emotional distress and fear after the event

  • Loss of companionship, consortium, and care

  • Damage to property

  • Punitive damages for egregious negligence
