Joliet Dog Bite Lawyer

Compassionate Representation for Animal Attack Victims

There may be no other type of injury that is more terrifying than being attacked by a dog. Not only can there be significant physical injuries involved, there can also be emotional trauma that may haunt the victim for life. Young children can be especially susceptible to these types of attacks due to their natural love and trust of animals.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of any type of animal attack, you have the right to seek compensation from the animal’s owner for your injuries. Illinois law follows the rule of strict liability in these matters. Unless the animal was provoked, owners can be held fully accountable if it can be shown that their negligence contributed to the attack. This can be difficult to prove in some cases, and an experienced Joliet dog bite attorney can help to ensure that your rights are protected.

Seeking Full Compensation for Attacks Involving All Types of Animals

At the Law Office of Steven Haney, we provide strong representation to clients in all types of animal attack claims. While the vast majority of the cases we see in this area of our practice involve attacks by dogs, there can be many other types of animals at the center of these claims. Cats, snakes, monkeys, ferrets and many other types of domesticated animals all share the potential to inflict serious injury on victims.

We seek maximum compensation for animal attack victims, including but not limited to the following:

~Medical care


~Loss of income

~Pain and suffering

~Emotional trauma
