A dog bite can be an expensive personal injury that requires emergency medical attention, hospitalization and surgery. A dog bite can lead to disfigurement, disease, long-term psychological effects, and injuries that affect your lifestyle. According to Wisconsin law, dog owners are responsible for injuries caused by their pets.
However, many times you may know the owners of the dog that bit. In Wisconsin, if a dog owner has insurance, you have the option to only sue the insurance company directly — leaving the dog owner out of the claim.
If you have been bitten, mauled or injured by a dog, know your rights. If your child has been bitten, protect their rights. Our personal injury attorneys understand the complexity of these dog bite claims and can help you receive compensation that covers:
- Medical expenses
- Reconstructive surgery
- Wage loss
- Pain and suffering
- Compensation may double if the dog has bitten before
