Hold Dog Owners Responsible for Attacks
Should I contact a lawyer if I have been injured by a dog bite or animal attack in Wisconsin?
Wisconsin premises liability law protects people who have been injured by dog bites or other animal attacks by holding dog owners accountable for harm caused by their dogs. At Levine Law, in Milwaukee we represent people throughout southeastern Wisconsin suffering from scarring, disfigurement and trauma caused by negligent dog owners.
We also represent people who have been injured by animals of all kinds, wild and domestic. Each situation is unique. When we handle your animal attack case, we use extensive experience, knowledge and skill to achieve a favorable outcome quickly and effectively.
While this may mean going to trial, statistics show that most dog bite cases settle before reaching the courtroom. Experience has shown us that preparation for trial can help aid in settlement. Opposing lawyers know our reputation as litigators. They know that we have what it takes to win at trial, so they are more likely to settle with us for the full and fair amount before taking matters before a judge or jury.
