Under Illinois law, a dog owner is liable for any injuries caused by his or her animal, with very limited exceptions such as provocation or illegal trespassing. Victims legally present on the owner’s premises who did not actively provoke the dog are entitled to full compensation for their sustained injuries and damages.

Some categories of damages a dog bite victim may recover in their case include:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages or earning capacity
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Psychological and emotional distress, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Permanent or temporary disability
