Bitten by a Dog in Wisconsin?
A dog's owner is fully responsible for the medical care and lasting harm caused by a dog bite or attack. If the animal had previously bitten or caused injury, the owner can be held liable for double damages. The Janesville, Wisconsin, law firm of Meier, Wickhem, Lyons & Schulz, S.C. has handled dog bite and animal attack cases through Rock County and the surrounding areas of southern Wisconsin. Call 800-803-1138 for a free consultation if you or your child has suffered a serious injury because of a dog bite or attack.
Dogs can inflict serious harm with one quick snap of their powerful jaws. Young children are the most frequent victims of dog bites and attacks, often suffering bites to the face and hands that require many stitches or plastic surgery. Terry Lyons has held pet owners responsible for injuries caused by their dogs, including:
- Bite wounds and claw wounds
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Reconstructive surgery
- Nerve damage or infection
- Injuries from fleeing an attacking dog
- Damages for pain and suffering
