Dog Bite Attorney Schaumburg, Chicago

Dog bite law is a combination of city, county and state law and therefore can be very difficult to navigate. If a dog has bitten you, follow the steps below and contact our expert personal injury attorneys at (888) 841-HURT to receive your rightful compensation.

Identify the Dog

Find out who owns the dog or where the animal lives. If the dog is a stray and you cannot identify it, you may be forced to undergo rabies shots.

Seek Medical Care

Depending upon the severity of the bite, contact first responders (9-1-1) for medical attention or have someone drive you to emergency care.

File Bite Report

File a bite report with your city or county animal control or Sheriff’s department.

Gather Information

Obtain the name and address of the dog owner, in addition to the dog license information. Also, find out if the dog has a record of violence.

Photograph Injuries

It is recommended that you photograph your wounds, including bruises, as well as torn, bloody clothing and the location of the attack.
