Wisconsin and Minnesota Dog Bite Attorneys
Wisconsin and Minnesota laws allow people who have been attacked by a dog to claim compensation for their injuries. Dog owners are strictly liable for the damage caused by their pets. If the owner knew that the dog had previously attacked someone, the second victim can seek double damages.
The lawyers at Novitzke, Gust, Sempf, Whitley & Bergmanis have been handling dog bite and animal attack cases for more than 40 years. This experience enables us to protect you. We ensure that you receive correct information about your rights and your options and that insurance companies and their attorneys cannot work against your best interests.
Handling cases involving children and adults
Although we handle all types of dog bite cases, those involving children can be the most tragic. Children attacked by an animal they thought was a friendly pet can be left emotionally and physically scarred for life. They are usually bitten on the face and often need multiple reconstructive surgeries and psychological treatment. They may have lifelong self-esteem and confidence issues.
We have assisted adult clients who have suffered the amputation of a limb because of a dog bite. Our lawyers have obtained compensation for victims who were injured when an animal knocked them down or caused them to fall from their bicycle. Other clients have been left with permanent nerve damage after a mauling dog attack.
Consulting with experts to build a strong case
Whatever the nature of the injury from the animal attack, our law firm can help. Our attorneys consult with medical experts and counseling specialists to document the impact of the dog bite on the life of our client. We develop a strong case for compensation that we will take to trial if a reasonable settlement offer is not available.
