Milwaukee Dog Bite Injury Attorneys
Fighting to Recover Damages for Dog Bite Victims
In Wisconsin, dog owners are legally responsible for the damages their
dogs cause by biting a person, attacking another domestic animal, or destroying
property. The duty imposed upon pet owners is based on the theory of strict
liability, which 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 was dangerous, the owner may 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.
