In Wisconsin, dog owners are legally responsible for the damages their dogs cause by biting or attacking a person, another domestic animal, or destroying property. The duty imposed upon pet owners is based on the theory of strict liability. In this situation, strict liability makes pet owners legally responsible for a bite or attack even if the owner did nothing wrong. Wisconsin law also provides that in the event the pet owners knew the dog or animal to be dangerous, the owner will be liable for two times the full amount of recoverable damages. If you have been injured by a dog bite or animal attack, contact the experienced Milwaukee personal injury attorneys of Samster, Konkel & Safran, S.C. today.
Please note the statutes of limitation may bar recovery of damages if legal action is taken after the statutorily prescribed time period. Call our Milwaukee personal injury attorneys today at (414) 224-0400 for a free dog bite case evaluation, or fill out our online Free Case Evaluation form.
