As seen in various media accounts as well as the Illinois dog attack posts seen on this site, dogs that attack people can lead to many types of serious injuries. For dog attacks in which injuries are not fatal, extensive injuries and possible disfigurement – including scarring – are common.
Medical bills and other costs can be substantial. Given these injuries and accompanying costs, victims of serious dog attacks often have a significant need for injury compensation.
Some dog attack injuries can be fatal, as seen in some of the attacks summarized on this site.
