Briskman Briskman & Greenberg Releases Free Ebook on Navigating Dog Bite Injuries in Illinois

May 14, 2024

Chicago, Illinois – Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, a prominent dog bite injury law firm in Chicago, has announced the release of a new free ebook designed to guide Illinois residents through the legal complexities surrounding dog bite injuries. As dog bites become an increasingly prevalent issue in the state in both suburbs and urban areas like Chicago, the firm offers this resource to help victims understand their rights and potential legal remedies.

The comprehensive ebook discusses the nuances of Illinois dog bite law, including the responsibilities of dog owners and the legal recourse available to bite victims. With approximately 76 million dogs in the United States and over 4.5 million Americans bitten each year – a significant number of whom are in Illinois – the firm recognizes the dire need for accessible legal information.

“Illinois does not follow the ‘one bite’ rule common in other states, where a dog’s past behavior influences liability,” said Paul Greenberg, Managing Member of Briskman Briskman & Greenberg. “Instead, under the Animal Control Act, Illinois holds dog owners liable for any bites or injuries caused by their pets, regardless of the animal’s history, so long as the victim did not provoke the incident. This statute underscores the importance of understanding your rights if you have been harmed in a dog-related incident.”

The ebook also provides insights into the specificities of defining dog ownership, owner negligence, and the types of damages victims can pursue, such as economic and non-economic damages. Given that dog attacks often result in significant financial strain from medical bills and other related expenses, the guide is an invaluable tool for those seeking compensation.

Additionally, the ebook emphasizes the emotional toll these incidents can inflict. “Beyond the physical injuries, victims often endure psychological trauma,” Greenberg notes. “Illinois courts recognize that emotional distress can be as debilitating as physical harm and can merit compensation.”

Briskman Briskman & Greenberg’s dog bite ebook delves into the various defenses dog owners might present in these cases, emphasizing the importance of expert legal assistance in navigating potential challenges. The ebook also offers preventative advice, underscoring the firm’s commitment to community welfare and safety.

“Releasing this ebook is part of our continued effort to inform the public and provide peace of mind in the unsettling aftermath of a dog bite,” Greenberg added. “Our aim is to ensure that victims understand their legal options and can make informed decisions after such distressing events.”

The firm’s “Briskman Guarantee” promises a free consultation with an experienced attorney to anyone suffering from a dog bite or related injury. It’s a testament to the firm’s dedication to offering expert legal support to Chicagoans in need.
