Arlington Height Dog Bite Attorneys

Arlington Heights is a large village located northwest of downtown Chicago. The attorneys of Zneimer & Zneimer, P.C. represent residents of Arlington Heights, and adjacent cities in Illinois, who were injured as a result of a dog bite or dog attack. Arlington Heights is most notably known for Arlington Park, which is home to both an annual dog show, as well as an annual family Pet Expo. Each year, these events bring dog owners, often with their dogs in tote, to the city of Arlington Heights. Unfortunately, some of these dog owners often fail to properly maintain their dogs, thereby resulting in injury or death caused by an attack by a vicious or dangerous dog. Our personal injury and dog bite attack attorneys are concerned for the residents of Arlington Heights, and other surrounding cities, who may fall victim to an attack by an improperly secured dog.

A recently reported by NBC, Illinois ranks second in dog bite claims, when compared to all other U.S. states. Injury and death resulting from a dog bite or dog attack is a highly problematic issue in Arlington Heights, and in Illinois in general. Such problem was addressed in a recent amendment to the Arlington Heights Municipal Code which strengthened penalties against dog owners whose dogs cause injury or death. Formerly, a judge could not order that a dog be put down until three attacks occurred. While our Arlington Heights animal attack attorneys don’t support putting a dog down, we do support humane euthanizing of dangerous and vicious dogs that pose a risk to public safety.

I have dealt with Sofia Zneimer since 2009. She is a great lawyer and has helped me tremendously in navigating the process of green card. She is a great resource to have by your side. She is easy to reach. She responds very quickly, which was very important for me. If she can’t answer the question the same day, she does let you know that she is working on it.
