We all know someone who has a dog as part of their family and we may have one ourselves. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a dog to attack someone. A dog attack can be a very traumatic experience and can also leave one with serious injuries and even disfigurement.

Strict Liability for Dog Bites

In Wisconsin, there is strict liability regarding dog injuries. This means that the owner of the dog can be held liable for any damage caused by the dog even if the dog has never bitten anyone in the past. In some instances, the owner could be liable for double the amount of damages incurred.

Because every case is different and there could be different compensation available depending on the circumstances, it is important to talk to a knowledgeable attorney to fully understand your rights and to obtain the compensation that is owed to you. Not only may you obtain compensation for the medical costs you had to incur due to the attack but you may also be able to obtain compensation for the psychological damage the attack may have caused.
