Dog Bites

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable In Animal Attacks

You can never really prepare yourself for a dog bite or an animal attack. You trust dog owners to take care of their pets, but when something goes wrong, make sure you put your health and safety first. You want an experienced lawyer who will make sure you have access to the immediate and long-term medical care you need.

At the Nicolet Law Office, our injury attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of personal injury victims across Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota. We understand the rights of people who have been the victims of dog bites and animal attacks, and we will make sure you hold the negligent party accountable, so you have access to medical care and fair compensation.

Putting Your Life Back Together

Whether you have been attacked by a dog or your child was bitten by a dog, it is important to understand your rights. Homeowners insurance is responsible for damages in these accidents. If your dog causes an accident that leads to serious injuries, you are liable. That covers a wide range of potential accidents, including:

  • Dog bites
  • Dogs running into someone, causing a slip-and-fall
  • Dogs running into the street, causing car accidents

Pet owners are at even more risk if their dog has attacked someone in the past and is known to be dangerous. Our firm has successfully protected the rights of people who have been attacked by all types of dogs, from Dobermans and pit bulls to German shepherds and hunting dogs. We have protected the rights of people hurt by the dog of a family member and people injured by the dogs of total strangers.

Children are often the victims of dog bites and their injuries often result in scarring and other serious effects which can have long-term implications. Our job is to make sure the court considers the long-term implications of your injuries, so you always have access to the care you need.
