Dog Bite Attorney in Wisconsin
There are an estimated 70 to 80 million dogs in the United States and nearly 5 million people are bitten by these dogs each year. Many of these individuals are forced to seek medical attention for their injuries. Because of their small size, the majority of dog bite victims are children, half of which are bitten in the face. However, both children and adults can be victims of severe and long-lasting dog bite injuries.
All Dogs Can Bite and Cause Lasting Harm
Although some breeds are known for their aggressive or dangerous behavior, all dogs are capable of biting. A dog bite can leave physical and emotional scars. An animal attack in someone’s childhood could forever haunt them. Not only do attacks leave disfiguring, appearance-altering physical scars, they can leave victims in fear of pets and other animals they encounter every day.
Wisconsin’s Strict Liability Dog Bite Law
In Wisconsin, pet owners can be held automatically liable for any damages or harms caused by their dogs. Animal attack victims do not necessarily have to prove pet owners overlooked prior complaints or acted recklessly.
