Milwaukee Dog Bite Law Firm
Animal attacks, particularly dog bites and maulings, can cause significant and long-lasting personal injuries, including permanent scarring, disfigurement, and emotional trauma. In Wisconsin, pet owners can be held responsible for injuries caused by their dogs. If you or a family member has been injured in an animal attack, the dog bite attorneys at Milwaukee’s Miller & Ogorchock, SC can help.
Wisconsin dog bite laws are highly specific. Our attorneys have a comprehensive understanding of state laws and a record of success in representing victims of dog bites. We will work to ensure that negligent pet owners are held responsible for the injuries inflicted by their dog, and that the animal is not allowed to harm anyone else.
Milwaukee injury lawyers helping dog bite victims
We have the experience and resources to thoroughly investigate the facts of your injury and determine whether claims can be made against the owner, his or her insurer, and any potentially responsible third parties.
Often victims can recover damages to cover their:
- Medical treatments
- Future treatment
- Psychological counseling
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
We know that some dog breeds, such as Pit Bulls, Dobermans and Rottweilers, are more aggressive by nature, and thus are more likely to inflict harm. We also know that children face the highest risk of dog attack. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that the odds a dog bite victim will be a child are approximately 3.2 to 1. This is often due to a child’s naiveté—they can push a dog past its breaking point, causing the animal to lash out and attack. Unfortunately, children often suffer more serious trauma, and even fatal injuries, if mauled by a dog.
If you, your child, or another family member has been injured in a dog mauling or attack, our attorneys are ready to help you. At Miller & Ogorchock, SC we handle cases on a contingent fee basis, so there is never a charge for any attorney fees or costs unless we win your case with a settlement or verdict, and you get paid.
