Dog bites and animal attacks can result in serious injuries. Scarring and fractured bones are not uncommon. Attack victims can be left with life long injuries and deformities, even after plastic surgery. Wild or domestic animals and pets such as dogs, cats, snakes and horses pose unique threats. These threats are determined by the animal’s size, natural weapons (teeth, claws, etc), and other factors.
Homeowners insurance will typically cover attacks caused by a property owner’s pet. Illinois law places the responsibility for a pet attack on the animal’s owner.
