Animal Bites Archives

How is rabies transmitted in an animal attack?

Last week, we discussed how an animal bite can affect you. There is one very serious complication that can occur that anyone who has been bitten by any animal might consider. This complication is rabies. Rabies can be carried and transmitted by a variety of animals. Our readers in Wisconsin should understand some of the basics of rabies.

Bites from animal attacks can lead to serious infections

We have previously discussed cases that involve animals biting humans. Not too long ago, we discussed the case of the man in Lowe's who was bitten in the face by a snake. We have also discussed dog bites and cat bites. Our Wisconsin readers probably know that animal bites can be very serious. One issue that is possible with animal bites is infection. Knowing about what leads to animal bite infections might interest our readers.

Even non-venomous snakebites can cause personal injury

In our blog post last week, we covered the story of the customer who was bitten by a snake at Lowe's. Fortunately, it wasn't a venomous snake. That fact, however, doesn't mean that the person didn't suffer injuries from the snake's attack. All snakes have teeth that can cause injuries. This might interest some of our Wisconsin readers.

Snake bite at store leads to personal injury of shopper

When you decide to do a remodeling job on your home, you might head to the home improvement store to look at different items and decide what you want. If you are shopping for kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets, you will probably open up those cabinets to see the inside. Imagine if you opened up one of those cabinets and a snake jumped out at you. That is what happened to one man when he went to Lowe's Home Improvement Center.

What should Wisconsin residents know about rabies?

Last week, we discussed how important it is for people to be careful around dogs when visiting family members and friends over the holiday season. Even when there isn't a holiday, it is still vital for everyone to exercise safety around pets. It is also vital that pet owners socialize and train their pets. The sad fact of the matter is that there is always a chance that a dog will bite someone. If you are bitten by a dog while you are on someone else's property, you should immediately find out if the dog is up-to-date on its rabies vaccination. Dogs who aren't properly vaccinated might put you at risk of rabies. Our readers in Wisconsin might like to know some basic information about rabies.

Be careful around dogs this holiday season to avoid dog bites

With the holiday season upon us, many people might be heading out to go visit other homes. Some of those homes might have dogs. While most people say their dogs are nice and friendly, there is always the possibility that the dog might lash out. With that in mind, we want to remind our Wisconsin readers about some basic dog bite facts.

Testifying in a personal injury case in Wisconsin

Readers of our blog know that we are firm advocates for the rights of people who were injured in an accident caused by someone else's negligence. In last week's blog post, we discussed animal bites and how it is important to determine which party you should seek compensation from if you are bitten by an animal. That is only the first part of a personal injury case in Wisconsin.

What are my options for compensation for animal attacks?

In a few of our blog posts, we have covered the subject of animal bite injuries. When a person gets injured by an animal, there are usually medical expenses associated with the cost of treating the animal bite. Even in the case of other animal attacks, such as cat scratches, there are costs of treating the injury. That brings up the question about who is responsible for paying for those costs when the attack is done by a pet.

What types of animal attacks are covered under Wisconsin law?

When most people think of injuries caused by animal bites, they automatically think of dog bites. While it is true that dog bites are serious incidents, they aren't the only animals that can bite a person and cause injury. Regardless of the type of animal that bit you, it is important for you to know that you do have the right to seek compensation from the animal's owner so that you aren't the person who is stuck paying the financial cost of the bite.

Wisconsin quarantine requirements after an animal bite

Wisconsin residents must know that local laws have put quarantine requirements on animals who bite people. This goes for both cats and dogs. An understanding of how these laws work and how the quarantine must be carried out can help residents know what to do after an animal bite. Furthermore, knowing the local dog bite laws can help those who have been bitten know what rights they have, especially if the laws were not being followed at the time of the animal attack.
