What Do Illinois Dog Bite Victims Recover On Average?

Illinois plaintiffs recover large sums of money for their dog bite injuries. Generally, they fetch around thirty or forty thousand dollars. This is higher on average than many other fields of personal injury litigation. The states where plaintiffs typically the most include Illinois, California, New York, Ohio, Texas, and Pennsylvania among others. Also, many of these averages across states are actually on the rise despite falling numbers in claims. This is due in part because of vulnerable victims (like children), dangerous circumstances (like bicycles), and other reasons.

How Do I Maximize My Illinois Dog Bite Award?

There are several things you can do to maximize the amount of your Illinois dog bite award. First, keeping track of things is important. You should carefully collect and itemize all of your receipts related to the costs of the dog attack including medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other expenses. Second, monitoring your communications is critical. You should avoid speaking to the owners of the dog, their lawyers, their insurance carriers, or any other of their representatives. If you do speak to them without counsel, you can risk giving away parts of your case and reducing your potential recovery. Finally, seeking a lawyer early after the dog attack is vital. Lawyers can prepare the items that need to be completed in order to obtain compensation. They can also conduct all of the investigations, analysis, and communications that will build your case. While you must do several things to preserve your recovery for an Illinois dog bite incident, these three actions might be the most important. Speak with a qualified attorney to understand the total demands of a dog bite case.

★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
