DuPage County dog bite attorney, dog bite laws, DuPage county personal injury attorney, personal injury claim, personal injury lawDogs have been considered man’s closest companion for thousands of years. 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.

b2ap3_thumbnail_aggressive-dog-DuPage-County.jpgDogs who exhibit aggressive behaviors are more likely to bite. 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.

b2ap3_thumbnail_slip-and-fall-injury-DuPage-County.jpgAlthough a slip and fall injury can occur at almost any time of the year, winter can be an especially busy season for emergency room doctors. Often, this is because the dropping temperatures create more ice and snow in parking lots, on sidewalks, and in entrance and exit areas. Learn what you can do to avoid injury, and how to protect rights, should a slip and fall happen to you or someone you love when winter weather strikes.

Give Yourself Extra Time

Whether you are headed to the office, off to a doctor’s appointment, or simply out running errands, it is always a good idea to give yourself extra time during the winter season. This makes you less likely to rush and more likely to see patches of ice or debris that might be covering icy surfaces. Going slower also decreases your risk of experiencing a severe injury, should you end up missing a patch of ice or slick snow.

b2ap3_thumbnail_premises-liability-DuPage-County.jpgSidewalks are frequently used in large metropolitan cities and communities. Moreover, if you shop at a stand-alone store, a strip mall, or even a large scale mall, you are likely to traverse a sidewalk somewhere on those premises.

While you may take for granted the bee-line to get into a store, you are at risk for serious harm if the business owner does the same and neglects to maintain his or her premises. Land owners must keep their sidewalks in a reasonable safe condition—a condition that would not cause injury to a pedestrian. If sidewalks are not kept safe, owners may be held accountable for injuries caused by unsafe conditions.

If you have been injured on a defective sidewalk, contact an experienced premises liability attorney to assess your rights and how to proceed further to potentially receive compensation for your injuries.

DuPage County personal injury attorney, supermarket spillsWeekly trips to the grocery store are a common routine for many individuals. For those who like to purchase fresh produce, or pick up ingredients for a last minute dinner plan, trips to the store can occur frequently. Moreover, fighting traffic, encountering distracted drivers, and attempting to find a parking spot can turn into a mission, or even an accident. Yet, what if the real danger lurked inside the actual store?

Stores Taking Stock of Their Premises

According to the U.S. Department of Labour’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration, slips, trips, and falls account for 15 percent of all accidental deaths, and these accidents are second only to motor vehicles as a cause of fatalities.
