The Physical And Psychological Damage Of Dog Bites
Few events are as horrifying and traumatic as being knocked down and attacked by an overly aggressive dog. Physical injuries often result coupled with emotional scarring. At Sparr, Belville & Brown, LLC, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, we do not discount the impact of a dog attack and aggressively pursue damages from the negligent owner.
The leash laws in Oshkosh and the surrounding areas are only as effective as the pet owners who abide by them. When owners let their animal run loose, you or your child could be seriously injured. For diligent representation from attorneys who care, contact us at 920-335-1413.
The Trauma Suffered When A Dog Attacks
An unrestrained dog can be a deadly menace. The act of entering a store or walking down a sidewalk can become a frightening and life-changing event. At our firm, we represent clients of all ages. Scarring to an adult or child’s face can require reconstructive surgeries. Therapy to deal with the emotional after-effects can become part of their lives.
Holding Negligent Dog Owners Accountable Is What We Do
Simply put, when a dog bites a passer-by, the owner is automatically liable. State law mandates that hospital staff treating a victim must report the incident to the police. With the attack on the record, a second episode of aggressive conduct can double the compensation for a dog bite victim.
With so much at stake, you don’t want to put your dog bite case in the hands of an attorney who treats it as a minor injury.
