Most of us love dogs. Unfortunately, on occasion, dogs can cause serious injury through dog bites, scratches, etc. Fortunately, Wisconsin law provides protection for the victims of dog bites. Under Wisconsin law, dog owners are strictly liable for damages resulting from a bite or attack by a dog. In addition, under Wisconsin law, if the owner of the dog was aware the dog had previously injured someone else, the owner may be liable for double damages.
When dealing with dog bites, it is important to have an experienced attorney handle your case. Attorney Steven T. Caya has handled many dog bite cases. As a former insurance attorney, he understands that insurance carriers take these claims seriously, especially in cases where the dog bite victim is a child. Another important factor in determining the value of your dog bite case is the type of dog involved, where the injured victim was bitten and what steps the dog owners took to prevent such incidents from occurring. Our experienced dog bite attorney knows the type of investigation needed as well as the type of evidence that is required to maximize your recovery in any dog bite situation.
