Question: What is substantial bodily injury under Wisconsin law?

Answer: Substantial bodily injury is a higher level of injury than just the standard of cause injury. That is often defined as an injury which creates a substantial risk of death, causes a serious permanent disfigurement or causes permanent or extended loss of the function of any bodily member or organ. And then there’s a catchall, so it can also be any other serious bodily injury. It’s just a level of injury that is higher than just general pain or impairment.
