Illinois Dog Bite & Animal Attack Resources
If you have suffered injuries as a result of a dog bite or animal attack, it is important to contact the correct authorities to investigate and document the incident. Animal control authorities may require that the dog or other animal be observed by a veterinarian to rule out diseases such as rabies. Animal control may also obtain the vaccination records and advise you whether additional medical attention may be needed by you.
When you call, you will be asked to report the dog owner’s name, address, and telephone number, if known. You will also be asked to report the type or breed of animal with a description including color and approximate size and weight. Reporting your dog bite incident to animal control authorities is important. Reporting a dog bite or animal attack allows authorities to keep track of vicious animals and reduces the likelihood that others will be bitten by the same animal in the future.
If you have been bitten by a dog, contact one of the following Animal Control Departments to report the animal attack. Then, contact the knowledgeable Illinois dog bite lawyers at the Law Offices of John J. Malm & Associates.
