When a pleasant visit between neighbors resulted in an unfortunate dog bite situation, the Chicago personal injury attorneys with Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. were there to help. After the incident, a friend immediately transported the victim to Swedish Covenant Hospital where the individual was treated for very serious lacerations and puncture wounds, resulting in severe blood loss. Since the tragic dog attack occurred between friends, this put everyone in a very difficult position. The victim was unsure of how to proceed and decided to consult with a Chicago injury attorney in hopes of recovering the necessary compensation.

With considerable experience in filing and aggressively pursuing dog bite injury claims, the premises liability attorneys at Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. guided their client throughout the process and negotiated with the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance company. By highlighting the extent of the injuries involved and the pain and suffering their client experienced, the Chicago injury attorneys at Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. successfully obtained a $76,000 settlement with the dog owner’s insurer and their client could continue recuperating.
