Do You Need a Dog Bite Lawyer?
If you or someone you know has suffered a personal injury from a dog bite or vicious animal attack, you may need a dog bite attorney. A Milwaukee dog bite lawyer can help you recover your losses due to medical bills, lost time from work and the pain and suffering that may result from being bitten by a dog.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly 800,000 Americans seek medical attention for dog bites every year. With half of those dog bite victims being children and over one dozen of those dog bite victims dying per year, dog attacks are a big deal. In Wisconsin, dog owners can be held liable for damages if their dog attacks or harms someone. And this doesn’t just apply to dogs: an owner can be held liable for the damages incurred for just about any sort of vicious animal attack, including horses and cats.

He knows that dog attacks aren’t just dangerous, they’re terrifying, and they can leave adults and children alike with lifelong health, cosmetic and psychological issues.
