Identifying liable sources for injuries caused by animal bites

Nothing can bring the joy of a pleasant evening walk in Wisconsin to a screeching halt faster than suddenly being attacked by another person's pet dog. Animal bites can cause very severe injuries. In fact, when a victim is a small child, the attack may prove fatal.

If you or your child has been injured by another person's pet, you may wonder what the best way to seek justice might be in your particular situation. An investigation into the events leading up to the injury can shed light on what options may be available for seeking restitution. One thing is certain: You should not be made to bear the expense of medical treatment or any other costs associated with the attack.

Pet owners are obligated to make sure their animals do not harm other people. Whether you were taking a leisurely stroll through your own neighborhood or were visiting a friend on a social call, you have the right to reasonably assume you will be kept safe from being bitten by any pets in the area. One of the first things you can do to seek compensation for damages is contact Fitzpatrick, Skemp & Associates, LLC to request a review of your case.

Our Wisconsin legal team can point you in the right direction to seek a monetary judgment against any party or parties deemed liable for your injuries. Animal bites often require extensive surgery for recovery; the results of which may lead to unsightly scars. Many dog bite victims go on to receive plastic surgery care that is typically quite expensive. Successful litigation can provide compensation to help offset such costs.
