Severe injuries from bites by large-breed dogs
Pit bull terriers are notorious for inflicting severe wounds with their powerful jaws, but other large-breed dogs, such as Rottweilers, Rhodesians or Dobermans, can do similar damage. Common injuries from dog bites include:
- Blood loss
- Broken and crushed bones
- Ligament damage
- Puncture wounds
- Nerve damage
- Severed body parts
- Torn tendons
- Wrongful death
Small children, who are most vulnerable to personal injury, are also the most common victims, especially in fatal attacks.
What can dog-attack victims recover in Wisconsin?
Wisconsin law allows a victim to recover for the full extent of injuries even if the animal had never caused harm to anyone else. This means that you can be compensated for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Rehabilitation costs
- Future lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional damage of the attack
- Psychological effects of scarring and disfigurement
If the dog’s owner knows of the animal’s viciousness from a prior attack, the victim is entitled to two times the full amount of damages. This requires a thorough investigation, including researching court records or police reports and interviewing residents of the neighborhood where the attack took place.
