Immediate steps to take after you are attacked by a dog

If you were attacked by a dog, the first thing you need to do is call the police and seek immediate medical attention. The police and animal control are in a position to investigate the attack and safely remove the dog if it is likely to cause further harm to others. Obtain a copy of the report and the information of the dog owner. Also, take photographs of the dog (if possible) and of your injuries to preserve any bite marks or scarring which may occur.

Dog bites cost over 9 million dollars in Illinois last year

Every year dogs bite thousands of people in America. In Illinois, dog bites and attacks are particularly common reasons for insurance claims. A State Farm Insurance Company study recently found that Illinois has the second highest rate of dog bites in the nation. State Farm paid out more than $9 million in dog bite claims last year in Illinois.

DuPage County pit bull dog bite case in Lisle

Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid in Naperville recently settled a DuPage County case for a victim of a vicious pit bull attack. Our client was walking her little Shi-Tzu dog along the sidewalk and minding her own business in the Village of Lisle when a pit bull inside a nearby house saw them, starting barking and then ran out an front unsecured door. The pit bull ran across the yard, through several feet of hedges, jumped up onto the sidewalk and clamped its jaws on our client's hand as she was lifting her Shit-Tzu off the ground for protection. The pit bull held its bite for over one minute and continued to bite and scratch our client and the Shi-Tzu until a Good Samaritan stopped their car to help.
