Take Proper Legal Steps Following A Dog Attack

Pets provide important companionship for people of all ages. Unfortunately, there are instances when a dog or other animal attacks a person and inflicts serious injuries.

The trauma of a vicious dog bite attack is life-changing. Dog bite injuries often leave permanent scars that can result in psychological damage as well. If you or someone you love has been bitten by a dog, you deserve to be compensated for medical bills, as well as any long-term physical or psychological damage.

The attorneys at Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C., with offices in Appleton and Green Bay, Wisconsin, are experienced at recovering maximum compensation for victims of dog bites and other animal attacks.

We investigate all the facts of a case. If a dog has a history of biting — even if it was only one previous attack — it can impact your case. In Wisconsin, it can entitle the current victim to double compensation. We know how to find every opportunity to maximize compensation.

Under Wisconsin law, dog owners are strictly liable for damages caused by their dogs. We examine all of the facts of a dog bite incident before rushing to reach a settlement in order to be assured that we are collecting the maximum amount allowed under the law.

Put The Experience Of A Green Bay Animal Attack Attorney On Your Side

Unfortunately, children are most susceptible to dog attacks. Many children are naturally drawn to animals and don’t always understand that some dogs are not friendly to strangers. A child can recover from the physical injuries of a dog bite, yet have psychological wounds — trauma and fear — that persist into adulthood.

Our experienced dog bite lawyers understand that it is wise to be patient and not rush to reach a settlement in a dog bite case until the full extent of psychological damages becomes clear.

Dog and pet owner liability law has been a constantly evolving and changing area. If you have questions regarding an incident involving you or a loved one, call our Appleton dog bite attorneys at 920-831-0300 or email us to schedule a free initial consultation.
