DOG BITE CLAIM IN BUFFALO GROVE, IL

PERSONAL INJURY : PERSONAL INJURY
POSTED ON SEPTEMBER 23, 2015

Case Background:
The victim of this dog bite case was, unfortunately, a minor child. The accident occurred while she and her parents were visiting her grandparents in Buffalo Grove Illinois. The victim was familiar with the dog and the dog had never displayed any propensity to attack. The dog bit the child’s face and she sustained serious injuries.

 

Challenge:
After seeing a specialist, it was determined that the severity of injuries and the need for future plastic surgery was impossible to establish. The doctor told the parents that this issue must be revisited several years after the incident, when their daughter’s body will develop a little bit more.

 

Result:
We were able to set up a claim with the homeowner’s insurance and convince the adjuster that the minor child did not provoke the dog. Also because the dog was classified in many studies as a vicious dog and required a special training, we were able to prove that the owner of the dog should have been aware of the dog’s propensity to attack. Finally, because the extent and complicity of the treatment could not be established at the time of the injury, we stalled the state of limitations to a file claim until a final diagnosis.

 

Even though the parents and their daughter were not able to obtain an immediate compensation for the daughter’s injuries and her pain and sufferance, our attorneys’ office secured all liability issues. Furthermore, our office complied with the statute of limitations requirements and reserved the issue of damages for a later appropriate time.
