Baraboo Dog Bite Attorney
Wisconsin's Dog Bite Laws Exist to Protect You
Irresponsible dog owners should be held responsible for the injuries their dogs inflict on others and the law is here to protect you. If you were injured by a dog bite, you may be entitled by Wisconsin law to compensation for your injuries. If the dog owner knew the dog was vicious or had attacked before, you may be entitled to addition financial help for your pain and suffering and the owner's negligence.
Dogs that attack off-leash or are found roaming can be susceptible to other gross negligence charges, and your health insurance may not cover the hospital bills. You should not have to pay for these injuries out of pocket.
