Naperville dog bite injury lawyer

Dogs continue to be one of the most popular types of household pets for many reasons. Typically, dogs have a good-natured, people-loving demeanor, which is why they are common family pets. Even still, dogs are animals, and people often forget that they can also be unpredictable and dangerous at times. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 4.5 million individuals are bitten by dogs every year and more than 800,000 of those people seek medical treatment for their injuries. Unfortunately, children make up a rather large percentage of bite victims, around half, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

Why Do Dogs Bite?

There are a number of reasons why a dog might bite a human. Most of the time, when a dog bites someone, it is because the dog is reacting to something. The only way dogs can communicate with humans is through physical actions. Biting is often a dog’s response to a stressful or scary situation.

Given the explosion of pet-related services and businesses in the last 10 years, the connection between a dog and its owner is stronger than ever. Most encounters with dogs are pleasant with no real risk of injury; however, dog bites do happen and are often related to uneducated or inattentive owners, or a dog that has not been properly socialized or trained.

Dog bites can inflict significant and permanent damage and should never be taken lightly. According to a report issued by State Farm for 2017, Illinois came in second in the country in terms of the number of dog bite claims filed with this insurer, with 318 for $12.6 million. This is just one insurance company that offers coverage for pet-related incidents. Thus, even more bites and injuries occurred throughout the State that are not reflected in these numbers.

Illinois takes the responsibility of pet owners to control their dogs and keep other people safe from harm seriously, and has laws in effect that govern when these owners may be legally responsible for an injury caused by their dog.

Nearly half of reported dog bites come from a family or neighbor dog—those who have live in close relation with a canine. Sadly, a large number of dog bite victims are children. All dogs have the proclivity to bite, regardless of temperament and past experiences.

If you find yourself around dogs, it is important to understand the signs so that you can take precautions if you believe a dog is dangerous. Additionally, many victims of dog bites are children; therefore, it is important for parents to be aware of signs of aggression in dogs.

Still, an understanding of the warning signs can still result in dog bites. In many cases, dog bites are not the fault of the victims under the law. Because the law favors dog bite victims, they often can be compensated for their injuries.
