If you or someone you know has been bitten or attacked by a dog or other animal, it is important that your rights are protected. Under Illinois law, the Animal Control Act makes the owner of a dog, or other animal, liable for injuries caused by the attack. In Illinois, a dog or animal owner is often held liable unless the animal was provoked by the injured person. Provocation can be a complicated analysis and requires an experienced attorney to protect your rights. If an animal owner has homeowner’s insurance, the insurance will generally cover the animal owner for the injuries caused by the animal. However, it is important to retain an experienced attorney immediately so that evidence can be preserved and protected, and the matter may be appropriately prosecuted.
I was seriously injured by a factory machine at work. Scott was amazingly aggressive, detailed, and conscientious. Through persistence, he proved the factory machine was unreasonably dangerous. The outcome absolutely changed my life in so many positive ways.
The moment I met him, I knew Scott was the lawyer for us. Professional, aggressive, confident, courteous, and meticulous. I couldn’t believe how hard he fought to win the case. We were so impressed by his skill and work ethic, and couldn’t be happier with the result. My wife and I always say that in someone else’s hands, we would have been lucky to get a quarter of that amount.”
When our journey ended professionally, Scott became a family friend. He is truly that rare attorney, so passionate about his work, and so aggressive when battling the opponent. He also showed such a sensitive side and really related to our loss. He was remarkable to watch.
Three words describe Scott: dignified, aggressive, determined. After watching him work for two years, he is the first person I’d call when in need, and the last person I’d ever hope to face in a courtroom.
The professionalism that I encountered was amazing. His firm handled everything. Scott was so diligent in following-up and pushed so hard to resolve my case. I hired him because he came so highly recommended, but he still surpassed my highest expectations.
A car collided with my motorcycle, and I was being blamed. Scott never gave up on my case and won the maximum amount of the policy limits. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional with unmatched skill, class, and precision.
