$200,000 settlement for Wisconsin dog bite victim
Steve Caya recovered $200,000 for an 8-year-old girl who was bitten in the face by a next door neighbor’s dog.
The insurance company’s original offer was $50,000. After Steve Caya filed a lawsuit on behalf of the dog bite victim, and deposed the dog owner and other witnesses, the insurance company changed its position.

Do you need a lawyer for a dog bite lawsuit?
Dog bite injuries, especially when they involve a child or a facial injury, can be very serious. Some dog bites can cause nerve damage, bacterial infection, permanent scarring and more. You owe it to yourself to have your injury claim reviewed by an attorney to determine if filing a dog bite lawsuit is in your best interests.
Don’t risk your health or financial future. Get your injury treated by a doctor ASAP, and contact our law firm to request a completely free consultation to learn about your best options for compensation.
Facial trauma needs to be taken seriously
Facial injuries caused by someone else’s negligent behavior are eligible for financial compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain & suffering
…and possibly more
Severe facial injuries can involve permanent disfigurement, even after extensive medical treatment. It’s important for accident victims to get professional insight from a facial injury lawyer to make sure they don’t settle for less than their injury deserves.
Give your dog bite claim the best chance of success
Not only is there a 3-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims in Wisconsin, you only have one opportunity to collect the compensation you need. Settling too soon, or committing any number of missteps in the claims process can result in a much lower amount than you’re entitled to.
Steve Caya works on a no-win, no-fee basis. In fact, if he takes your case and is unable to secure the compensation you deserve, he’ll cover any court costs you may have incurred. Our law firm is in Janesville, serving injured victims statewide.
