Get Legal Help With A Top Beverly Dog Bite Lawyer
If you are bitten by a dog in Beverly, Illinois dog bite laws outline your rights and whether or not you can recover compensation from the owner of the dog. Illinois dog bite laws, just like most other laws under the personal injury category, are often confusing for victims. The problem with dog bite laws is that there are state, county, and city laws and ordinances that are intertwined. Because of the confusion that dog bite laws in Illinois can create, victims of dog bites should contact a Beverly dog bite attorney who can explain your rights to you, according to the law.
Fighting for Beverly Dog Bite Victims
Dog bite disputes can become extremely messy, because most dog bite disputes involve a dog owner who feels like their dog is their best friend and a victim who feels like the dog is dangerous. Dog owners are usually emotionally attached to their pet, and many treat their dogs as if they are part of the family. Therefore, when a victim files a dog bite lawsuit against the owner of a dog, emotions often flare up.
When you hire one of our Beverly dog bite attorneys, you will not have to be personally involved in dealing with the owner of the dog. In fact, the attorneys at Michael T.

Defending a Dog Bite Case
Because a lot is at stake for the dog and the dog’s owner, the owner will most likely hire their own legal representation. Two common defenses for dog bite cases are trespassing and provocation, which means that the owner of the dog will most likely claim that you either provoked their dog into behaving the way the dog did, or the owner will say that you were not allowed to be on his property when the dog bit you. We deal with dog bite cases all of the time, therefore, we know how to counter the typical defenses that come up in dog bite cases.
