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
  • Disfigurement
  • 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.
