If you've been injured by a dog bite, you have the right to justice in court. In Illinois, the laws have changed to better protect victims with the passage of the Animal Control Act. Before this act was passed, dog owners could cite what was called the "one bite rule"-- if the dog only bit the victim once, the owner could say that they had no prior knowledge that the dog would bite, and the victim would not have a case. Now the Animal Control Act has removed the one-bite rule. In order to win a personal injury case, victims must prove that they were injured by the dog bite, that they were not trespassing, and that they were "conducting themselves peaceably" and not provoking the dog. McCready, Garcia, & Leet has won generous awards for many dog bite victims.
