The vast majority of dog owners feel that their family dogs are members of their families. Often, a dog owner will insist that his or her dog that plays lovingly with small children in the family would never attack someone. Unfortunately, a Wisconsin resident can face a serious personal injury from a dog despite its owner's belief that it would never harm anyone.
There are many pet owners in Wisconsin who are willing to point out the benefits of owning a pet. While there may be many, the personal safety of others must be protected from a potentially violent animal even if that animal is a beloved pet. Unfortunately, a dog attack has reportedly left one woman in the hospital as a result of the serious injury she suffered. Her dog also required medical attention.
There are millions of households across the country that have pets. As a result, animal bites have affected thousands of people. Even dogs, or other pets, that an owner would swear were gentle and would never cause harm have been known to attack a completely innocent person. Unfortunately, animal bites can have serious financial and physical ramifications -- including infection or disease. As a result, many people in Wisconsin have sought legal recourse in form of a personal injury claim filed in a civil court.
