Racine and Kenosha Pet Owner Negligence Lawyers
If you or a family member has been attacked by a dog, or if you were involved in an auto accident caused by a loose dog in the street or a stray cow on the highway, contact the experienced and resourceful Milwaukee dog bite injury attorneys at Domnitz & Skemp.
Because the injuries associated with severe dog bites can be serious and disabling, Wisconsin law imposes strict liability on the owner of an animal that attacks a person. If the dog is known to be dangerous on the basis of any past attack, Wisconsin law requires that any damages awarded for the injuries it causes will be doubled.
Dog bites can result in injuries as severe as any other personal injury situation. Multiple surgical procedures can be necessary to repair the worst damage, including nerve trauma, serious disfigurement, and loss of the use of a hand or arm. Dog bite victims and survivors who escape with moderate scarring are the lucky ones - just ask the woman who received the world's first face transplant. She was attacked by her own dog.
We also handle cases involving motor vehicle accidents and property damage caused by stray farm animals and loose dogs or other pets. Wisconsin premises liability law makes the owners of such animals responsible for their negligent failure to control their pets, livestock, and other domestic animals.
Our comprehensive knowledge of Wisconsin personal injury law and long experience in state and federal trials can give you the advantage both in court and in settlement negotiations. Milwaukee personal injury attorney Merrick Domnitz has long been recognized as one of Wisconsin's leading litigators. In 2009, Wisconsin Lawyers voted him a Top 10 Super Lawyer, and in 2002 he was named Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Wisconsin Association for Justice. The previous year, he became one of the few Wisconsin civil trial attorneys honored by nomination and election to the American College of Trial Lawyers.
If you need advice and experienced trial counsel on a dog bite claim or any other personal injury or property damage case involving animals of any kind, contact the Milwaukee animal attack injury attorneys at Domnitz & Skemp.
