At Techmeier Law Firm, our dog bite attorneys know how serious a dog bite can be. Soft tissue injuries and deep bite wounds can result in scarring as well as nerve and muscle damage that can last a lifetime. Dog attacks represent some of the most gruesome personal injuries, especially when a child is the victim. According to statistics released by the Center for Disease Control, dog bites result in more than fifteen deaths each year in the U.S., and thousands of serious injuries.
If you or your child has been bitten by a dog, your first priority must be to seek immediate medical attention. If it was a stray dog, contact the police immediately. If it was a neighbor’s or relative’s dog, inform the owner as soon as possible.
Suing your neighbor’s insurance company

Many people are concerned about suing their friend or neighbor because of the high amount of money damages that may result. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to investigate every available insurance source, including the owner’s homeowner’s insurance, health insurance, and other ways to seek damages that may not come directly out of the dog owner’s pocket. At Techmeier Law Firm of Wisconsin, we understand the need to be discreet, professional, and understanding about maintaining your relationships, while seeking maximum money damages for your injuries.
