Illinois jury awards six-figure sum to dog bite victim

Illinois dog owners may take a variety of cautions to avoid the potential lawsuits that can arise when guests to their property are bitten. Dog bites can subject owners to premises liability if a jury agrees that reasonable precautions were not taken, such as posting signs, constructing fencing or dog cages, and keeping dogs leashed when in public. If a jury finds a dog owner was negligent, the compensation awarded to dog bite victims can be substantial, as a recent case illustrates.
