Police Dog Bites Attorneys | Romanucci & Blandin
There are numerous tools that police officers use to apprehend a suspect, and that includes dogs. Police dogs are generally well-trained, but there have been cases where a police officer used their animal to bite a suspect, which caused unnecessary harm to the individual. In Illinois, most patrol dogs are either Belgian Malinois or German Shepherds. If there is an explosive or drug investigation, Labradors and retrievers are most commonly used. All of these K-9 dogs are generally mid-larger breeds, and they can seriously injure a suspect.
If a police dog attacks a suspect, they can potentially break the suspect’s bones, or cause severe lacerations. If you have suffered an injury from a police dog attack, RB Law has the experienced Chicago police dog bit attorneys to help you with your case.
