what you need to know about dog bites in wisconsin

If you have been injured by a dog bite, you probably have questions. Getting the legal assistance you need to recover is just one phone call away.
Do I Have A Valid Dog Bite Claim?

To recover financially from a dog bite injury, you must be able to prove:

  • The defendant owned the dog that bit you,
  • That you were actually bitten by the dog,
  • The dog bite resulted in your injuries, and
  • You were lawfully on the premises where the dog bite occurred.
What Can I Recover From A Dog Bite Lawsuit?

Most damages in dog bite cases come in the form of compensatory damages, which are meant to compensate you for your dog bite injuries and losses. This could include payment for medical expenses, lost wages, and more general damages such as pain and suffering.

Where Does Compensation Come From?

Most often, the dog owner's home insurance is called on when his or her dog bites someone. Some dog owners carry additional insurance to cover their pets. In some cases, the dog owner's personal assets may be used to compensate a dog bite victim.

While Wisconsin law typically holds the dog owner responsible, there may be exceptions or more than one party at fault for a dog bite injury. At certain times, the keeper or person caring for the dog may be held liable for the actions of the dog.

When Should I File A Dog Bite Claim?

In Wisconsin, dog bite victims have three years to file a lawsuit against the owner of the dog responsible for their injuries. It is critical to begin investigating and collecting evidence, witness testimony and medical records as soon as possible to preserve your claim. Contact a Wisconsin dog bite attorney today.
