Dog Bites

Dogs are known as “man’s best friend,” but they can also be your worst nightmare in a vicious dog attack. At Leiter Law Offices, we represent individuals and families in a wide range of serious dog bite cases throughout the southwest suburbs of Chicago.


Has your child been bitten by a neighbor’s dog? Even if the dog attacked your child on your neighbor’s property, you still have rights. Contact our firm today to learn more.


Bitten by a Dog? You Have Rights and We can Help You Protect Them

In Illinois, a dog owner is liable for any injuries his or her dog causes an individual, regardless of where the attack took place. Typically, a dog bite claim is handled under the dog owner’s homeowners insurance, or renters insurance.


Founder of Leiter Law Offices and Joliet dog bite injury attorney Gregory Leiter is knowledgeable of the Illinois dog bite and premises liability laws, and he can help you understand how they apply to your case. At Leiter Law Offices, we represent clients who have suffered severe and catastrophic injuries, including:


  • Skin lacerations
  • Puncture wounds
  • Broken bones
  • Back, neck or spine injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Limb loss
  • Emotional trauma, i.e., Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)


In addition to the above injuries, Leiter Law Offices also represents family members of dog bite victims who have been fatally wounded in wrongful death claims.


We realize how traumatizing an animal attack can be, especially to a child. While injuries can often require months of medical treatment and reconstructive surgery, the emotional distress can last a lifetime.


Lawyer Gregory Leiter, along with our team at Leiter Law Offices, can help you obtain maximized compensation for the injuries you or your loved one has endured. While no amount of money may be able to take away the physical and psychological pain, it can help to ease the financial burdens associated with the injuries.


Our Contingency Fees | At Leiter Law Offices, we offer a free initial consultation to review your personal injury claim. If we take on your case, we only charge fees when we obtain compensation for you.
