Wisconsin provides for strict liability if you are bitten or injured by a dog. In addition, if the dog had previously bitten someone else, then double damages may be available.
Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Nursing home abuse and neglect is a common and growing problem in Wisconsin. The isolation and lack of mobility of nursing home residents is made worse by a lack of appropriate care that can lead to serious harm or even death. Pressure ulcers, falls, bruising and broken bones are all indications of nursing home neglect.

Slip & Fall or “Premises Liability”
Slip and fall, or other accidents on someone else’s property, can cause serious injuries. Property owners who are negligent in taking care of their property are liable for the injuries which result from dangerous conditions on their property, such as wet or slippery floors; accumulation of snow or ice or rainwater or other hazards, broken or missing handrails; poorly lit or unlit hallways or stairways; uneven pavement or floors; and lack of security, etc.
People who are injured deserve compensation for any pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and other consequences. However, property owners and their insurance companies don’t often pay compensation willingly. It is important to get a lawyer as quickly as possible after the accident, before the property owner has the chance to destroy any evidence.
Premises Liability Lawsuits
“Premises liability” is the legal term that encompasses slip and falls. Premises liability law holds the owners of dangerous property responsible for any injuries which could have been avoided had they not been negligent. To get compensation, you must prove that the hazard on the property was the cause of the injury.
Common examples of situations that result in valid premises liability lawsuits include:
- Slips in pools of water or other liquids
- Falls in decrepit apartment buildings
- Merchandise falling from shelves
- Pallets or other objects left in the aisle
- Trips and falls because of holes or uneven surfaces in pavement or floors
