Both children and adults can suffer greatly due to a dog attack

Most Wisconsin dog bite victims suffer more than physical injuries from a dog attack, and Wisconsin law allows those who experience pain and suffering to recover compensation for these injuries.

Signs of Emotional or Psychological Injury After a Dog Bite Attack in Wisconsin

You may be experiencing emotional suffering if you have:

  • Unusual or excessive fear.
  • Anxiety.
  • Depression.
  • Sleep disturbances.
  • Nightmares.
  • Flashbacks.
  • Feelings of helplessness.
  • Withdrawal from loved ones and favorite activities.
  • Feelings of intense anger or rage.

Children who have been bitten by dogs may experience the same types of emotional suffering, or they may have:

  • Excessive crying.
  • Unusual clinginess.
  • Regression to out-grown behaviors, including bedwetting or thumb-sucking.
  • Difficulty sleeping.
  • Fearful behavior.
  • Tantrums.

If you or your child experiences any symptoms of psychological or emotional injury after a Wisconsin dog bite, then it is important to talk to a doctor. A dog bite is an extremely traumatic event, and your symptoms are the natural response as your brain tries to deal with the horror you experienced. You can get help. Asking for help does not make you weak.

And Fighting for Fair Damages Can Make You Strong

Your lawyer can help you gather the necessary evidence and make convincing arguments for your full recovery of damages for your non-economic injuries such as physical pain and emotional suffering. The money that you recover for these injuries can help you afford the care and accommodations that you need to heal and recover as fully as possible.
