How to Reach Kane County Animal Control

Animal Control in Kane County

It can be scary to be bitten by an animal, and you may be unsure how  works. Every city has different animal control laws, and it can be confusing who to call.

Animal control in Los Angeles is different from animal control in Atlanta, which differs from animal control in Miami. So if you get bitten by a dog, for instance, you may not know who to report the dog bite to, if you need a lawyer for the dog bite, or if you can sue for damages due to the bite.

And every state has its dog bite law, as does every city and sometimes every county. So if you get bitten in Pennsylvania, California, Texas, or Ohio, it may be unclear whether you complain to the state or the city or county.

DoNotPay can make it clear who you contact, help you find a lawyer, and help you sue if it's necessary. This guide will talk about , educate you on the dog bite laws, and explain why DoNotPay is the source to use if you get bitten by a dog.

Kane County Dog Bite Laws

510 ILCS 5/16 states that if a dog or other animal "attacks, attempts to attack, or injures" a person, the dog's owner is "liable in civil damages...for the full amount of the injury."

Can You Sue Someone for Dog Bites?

If your animal bites someone, you could be sued in civil and criminal court. In addition, the injured person can sue you for any money they paid for their injuries.

Who Is Liable if a Dog Bites Someone?

Illinois law uses the principle of "strict liability," in which a dog's owner is liable for injuries that occurred when their pet attacked someone, regardless of whether they were aware that their animal was likely to do so.

What Do I Do if I Have Been Bitten by an Animal in Kane County?

You or someone with you should get the owner's information and seek medical help at an emergency room or urgent care. The attending doctor will file a report with the county, and animal control will follow up with the owner. Animal control may call you for further information.
