Was Your Child Attacked By A Dog?
While dog attacks can be horrible for people of all ages, children are more commonly the victim. Young dog attack victims may have to deal with lifelong scars from the attack. If those scars are on the child's face, there can be a psychological impact. Even if they are not, the attack may still leave long-term emotional scars. We work hard to see that victims get sufficient compensation for the emotional and physical damage done.
Has The Dog Attacked Before?
You might not be the dog's first victim. Perhaps a neighbor told you that the dog has attacked other people in the neighborhood. One of the first steps we take in dog bite cases is to investigate the dog's history. We know that dog bites are not always reported, so we will ask the necessary questions to learn if the dog has what the courts call a "vicious propensity."
A history of attacks can make a difference. Even one previous attack is important. In Wisconsin, it can entitle the current victim to double compensation. We know how to find every opportunity to maximize compensation.
