Dog Bite/Animal Attacks

Dogs are usually "man's best friend". However, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year. Of those that are bit, 1 out of every 5 victims will require medical care. The attacks have been so severe that in 2006, over 31,000 people underwent reconstructive surgery following dog bites. Children are often the victims.

The laws of Minnesota and Wisconsin can help. Usually the dog owner's homeowner's or renter's insurance will cover these injuries.

Victims of dog bites may be entitled to compensation. Damages can include medical bills, hospital bills, wage loss, pain and suffering, compensation for scarring or emotional distress. Anyone who has suffered this type of injury should contact an experienced attorney right away.
