Milwaukee Dog Bite Attorney On Your Side
Legal help if you’ve suffered a dog bite or animal attack
If you’ve been bitten by a neighbor’s dog or attacked by a neighbor’s animal (even a non-domesticated animal that is being kept as a pet), you can — and should — talk to a personal injury attorney and seek help from the courts.
Dogs and other animals that are not properly restrained are a hazard to the safety, and even the lives, of people who live nearby. Children are the most frequent victims of dog attacks: 60% of dog bite or dog mauling victims are small children. Children are also most likely to suffer deadly injuries or life-long facial scarring and disfigurement as a result.
As letter carriers, bicyclists, and joggers can attest, even relatively minor dog bites can cause infection and scarring or nerve damage resulting in loss of motion or function of a limb. Dogs can be a serious threat to anyone walking through a neighborhood.
The law is clear: dog owners are liable for the actions of their dogs
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious or disfiguring injury because of a dog bite, cat mauling, or other pet attack, contact the Milwaukee law office of The Previant Law Firm, S.C. to speak with an attorney. Our dog bite lawyers work hard to help the people of southern Wisconsin recover after serious injuries. We can help you.
Bringing a personal injury lawsuit in an animal attack case
- Unless you did something to instigate the attack by harassing or mistreating the dog or trespassing on marked property, the dog owner is fully and personally responsible for financial damages.
- In the case of small children under the age of 7, the dog owner is always responsible, even if the child was engaging in wrong behavior. Small children are not capable of understanding the cause and effect of their actions. It is up to the dog owner to keep children away or to supervise the dog.
If you’ve been injured by a dog or other pet not your own, you can seek compensation in court for lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. At The Previant Law Firm, S.C., our dog bite lawyers have been helping injured people get successful results in personal injury cases for more than 100 years. Our many verdicts and settlements speak to our success on behalf of seriously injured clients.
