How do you prove negligence in a dog bite claim? Well, it’s really important to gather evidence as fast as you can so you know who did what. In Wisconsin, a dog is strictly responsible, meaning a dog that causes damages is assumed to be responsible for the bite. But as a dog owner or as somebody who might be approaching dogs, you can be comparatively at fault.
So you might be contributorily negligent. That’s why it’s so important to get your side of the story, tell your side of the story and get the names and statements from witnesses so you really understand what took place.
