Injuries from Animals FAQs


When can I sue for an animal injury?

A pet or animal owner can be held liable for injuries and damages caused by their animal in several instances. This may include cases where the animal attacked a person unprovoked, was improperly restrained, the owner did not provide adequate signs warning of danger, or there was not an adequate barrier in place. If any of these circumstances led to you being injured by an animal, it is likely that you will be able to sue for compensation.

How much compensation does Wisconsin law allow me to pursue for animal injuries?

According to Wisconsin statutes, a dog owner has strict liability when their dog injures another person in an attack. This means that they are responsible for paying in full all the damages and costs associated with the incident. In addition, if the owner was aware that the dog had previously attacked or caused damage to another person, they may be required to pay double damages to the injured person.
