SLIP AND FALL

Skilled and Effective Legal Representation for Slip and Fall Accident Victims

Slip, trip, and fall accidents are one of the most common occurrences that lead to premises liability claims. Even though these cases are common, it can be very difficult to prove who was at fault in the incident. For example, was the property owner, manager, victim, or someone else responsible for the victim’s injuries? Although a trip and fall accident may not seem like a serious accident, the results can be catastrophic. From sprains to broken bones to concussions to traumatic brain injuries to spinal cord injuries, one small mistake could affect someone’s life permanently.

Most common causes for Premises Liability Scenarios

  • Slip and fall incidents at business establishments, apartment communities and private homes caused by slippery substances such as water.
  • Trip and fall incidents at business establishments or private homes caused by rotting staircases and handrails and defective sidewalks or flooring.
  • Construction site accidents caused from the negligence of general contractors or sub-contractors.

DOG and ANIMAL BITES

Experienced Dog Bite Attorneys in Milwaukee

Animal attacks can come out of nowhere, and can change your life in the blink of an eye. Scherr & Scherr, LLP is a law firm in Milwaukee that provides passionate, vigorous, and effective representation for animal attack victims in the State of Wisconsin.

Milwaukee Law Firm for Serious Animal Attacks

Wisconsin law provides that the owner of a dog that causes injury or damage to any person, property, or domestic animal is liable for the full amount of the losses caused by the attack. This is true regardless of whether or not the dog has previously been involved in a similar incident. In fact, if the owner knows or has been notified that the dog was involved in a previous animal attack, he or she can be held liable for twice the actual damages sustained by the victim. The Milwaukee lawyers at Scherr & Scherr, LLP are experienced in investigating and obtaining maximum compensation for victims in cases involving vicious animal attacks.

We frequently represent Wisconsin residents seeking compensation for the following types of injuries sustained as a result of dog bites accidents:

Disfigurement
Scarring
Broken bones
Deep tissue injuries

Neck and back injuries
Emotional distress
Other serious personal injuries

If you miss substantial time from work as a result of the attack, or if your injuries make it painful or impossible for you to maintain your employment, we can help you seek compensation for lost wages and lost earning capacity as well.

Comparative Negligence in Milwaukee Animal Attack Litigation

Like premises liability and other personal injury claims, dog bite cases in Wisconsin are subject to the rule of comparative negligence. This means that a victim can obtain at least a partial recovery as long as he or she is less than 50% at fault in causing the accident. Comparative negligence is often raised as a defense in animal attack cases, particularly those involving attacks on children. It is not uncommon for a dog owner to assert that a child victim caused his or her own injuries by enticing or antagonizing their pet in order to evade financial responsibility.

Our lawyers have significant experience challenging and overcoming contributory negligence claims. Winning full compensation in these cases often means going to trial. Unlike many other law firms, Scherr & Scherr, LLP doesn’t shy away from going to court to fight for the compensation our clients deserve.
