Des Plaines Dog Bite Lawyer

The experienced team of dog bite injury and dog attack attorneys at Zneimer & Zneimer, P.C. represent Des Plaines victims of dog bites and dog attacks. Des Plaines is a moderately sized suburb of Chicago, located in Cook County, Illinois. Dog bites and dog attacks continue to be an extremely concerning topic in personal injury. Our Des Plaines dog bite lawyers are committed to providing the residents of ‘The City of Destiny,’ and other neighboring Chicago cities with exceptional legal representation. The foremost concern of our injury attorneys is to obtain fair and just compensation for our Des Plaines clients.

Injuries from dog bites and dog attacks can be severe. It is estimated that approximately one-fifth of all dog bite injuries require medical attention. Medical expenses for the severe injuries that can be inflicted during a dog attack may be substantial. Our dog bite injury attorneys understand the profound financial effect such injury may have on you and your loved ones. According to a recent study, “the average cost of a dog bite-related hospital stay was $18,200, approximately 50 percent higher than the average injury-related hospital stay.” For more dog bite statistics, please click here. Common injuries from a dog bite or dog attack include:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Lacerations
  • Abrasions, scratches, or other skin or subcutaneous tissue injury
  • Loss of fingers, limbs, or other body parts
  • Disfigurement
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Internal injuries and crushing injury
  • Infection
  • Psychological injury
  • Permanent scarring
  • Nerve Damage

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, over 31,000 dog bite victims underwent reconstructive surgery in 2006 as a result of a dog bite or dog attack. Unfortunately such surgery is rarely sufficient to completely correct disfigurement. There may be substantial scarring that remains, and sometimes future reconstructive surgery may be necessary. Our Des Plaines dog bite attorneys understand that victims of dog bites and dog attacks are concerned with compensation for current medical bills, and also compensation for future treatments to address scarring, disfigurement, or infection.

It is imperative that you seek consultation with a Illinois licensed dog bite injury attorney if you or a loved one were injured in a dog attack in Des Plaines, or a surrounding city. Call a personal injury attorney today at 773-516-4100 for a FREE personal injury consultation.

Someone rear-ended my car last spring and I was injured. Peter and Sofia Zneimer and they staff were professional and were always available by phone. I knew that the insurance of the other driver wasn't very good but they were still able to settle my case promptly and I was satisfied with the money I received. Overall, a very good trusted experience. Natig M.

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. I would have no hesitation in recruiting her. Hemant S.
