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, and these injuries can lead to fatalities. For these dog attacks in which injuries are not fatal, extensive injuries and possible disfigurement – including scarring – are common, and medical costs can be substantial.
Given these injuries and accompanying medical costs, those who are victims of severe dog attacks often have a significant need for injury compensation.
