Understanding Illinois’ Animal Control Act

At the Law Office of Kerley & Associates in Illinois, we know how frightening a dog bite can be, especially if the dog bites your child. Even if (s)he receives only a tiny “nip,” you naturally worry about the possibility of rabies. In addition, this experience could make your child fear all dogs for the rest of his or her life.
