Dog Bite Guidebook An injury sustained by a person involved in a dog attack can be painful and commonly accompanies injuries that may result in permanent scarring. Illinois law affords people injured by a dog to pursue a legal claim to recover financial compensation for their medical expenses and injuries.

The majority of settlements and judgments paid in Illinois dog bite cases are paid by the homeowner’s insurance company for the owner of the animal. Recognizing this exposure, insurance companies will go to great lengths to minimize their payouts. You will learn why not all dog bite cases are created equal—why some cases settle for meager amounts while other cases settle for six figures.

As the victim of a dog bite, you must recognize the headwinds you will likely face. This book will walk you through the laws you need to be aware of, how to hire the best attorney for your case, and the steps you can take to maximize the value of your case.

“Dog Bite Guidebook: Tips for Helping Victims Recover Compensation” sells for $17.95 plus shipping and handling. As a resource to you, you can obtain a free copy of this book by completing the form below.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
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
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
