A dog bite can be a painful experience that may leave a victim bleeding, disfigured and with the threat of a transmitted disease. Illinois residents who are unlucky enough to experience a dog bite may have to seek medical treatment, and, depending upon the severity of the harm, they may have to endure surgeries, hospitalizations and vaccination therapies just to start down the road to recovery. It is, therefore, to a person's benefit to understand how to avoid and prevent these potentially dangerous encounters with dogs.
Some people are more susceptible to being bitten by dogs than others simply because they are not adept at reading dogs' pre-attack body language.
The human body is remarkably resilient to harm, if it receives the right treatment and has time to rest and recover properly. However, when an injury affects the spine, it is not time to sit around ignoring it and hoping that your body will heal itself over time.
Not everyone who enters onto the property of another person has the right to be there. For example, if an Illinois resident sees a "no trespassing" sign and elects to enter that land, they may waive their right to seek compensation for any injuries they sustain while traversing the land.
