Dog Bites




Western Wisconsin Animal Attack Lawyers

The severity of dog bites should not be underestimated. If left untreated, they can become infected, leading to major complications. Even minor bites may leave permanent scars, which can have a life changing effect if they are on the face, particularly for a child who then has to grow up with these injuries.

The office of Egan & Richgels, S.C. is committed to helping dog bite injury victims get every penny of compensation they deserve. If you, your child or another loved one has been in attacked by a dog, we will work hard to help you get compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other costs.

Do Not Feel Guilty About Filing a Dog Bite Claim

People often feel guilty about filing a claim against a neighbor, friend or family member after a dog bite. It’s important to understand that in Wisconsin and some other states, the claim can be made directly against the insurance company. The dog owner does not have to be a party to the lawsuit.

Responsible pet owners expect their insurance to cover the dog bite victim. Often, pet owners are angry when they learn that their own insurance company delayed or denied payment of legitimate claims caused by their animals.

Dangerous Dogs and Other Animals

Not all dog bites are caused by the types of dogs that are traditionally considered dangerous, such as pit bulls, Rottweilers and Doberman Pinschers. The breed of dog has little bearing on the case but the dog’s history does. If the dog has shown a history of violence, the door could be open for additional compensation.

We are experienced not only in dog bite cases but in cases involving attacks by other animals. Sometimes, animal attacks come from surprising sources, such as miniature stallions and horses. No matter what has happened, we can help.
