What if You Hurt a Third Party While Defending Yourself?
If while defending yourself from one person, you unintentionally hurt another, you may be responsible for injury to that other person, and guilty of a crime arising from that. It will depend on whether your conduct recklessly or negligently created an unreasonable risk to the third person.
Defense of Others and Defense of Property
You also have the right to defend others, similar to the conditional right to defend yourself as described above. You also have the right to defend property, but this comes with one further limitation. In Wisconsin, there is no right to defend property by intentional use of force likely to cause serious injury or death.
Free legal advice is worth what you pay for it. Paid for advice from other than your attorney is worth less.
