Dog Bite on Face Scar Settlement

Comments (0)

Our Michigan dog bite lawyers recently settled a case for a woman who suffered a dog bite to her face.  She was at the Defendant’s home for an estate sale in Farmington Hills when she was bitten on her face by the owner’s dog.  She had an open wound and sought immediate care from her doctor.  She later sought an opinion from a plastic surgeon who determined that the scar was permanent but could be reduced with plastic surgery.  He recommended scar revision surgery for her and she has not yet determined if she wants to have the elective procedure.

Dog bites often result in wounds and/or painful scars that for many victims require plastic surgery. In fact, any bite that has punctured the skin deep enough to cause blood will result in a disfiguring scar. Some may opt not to have a plastic surgery, however the majority of people who are recommended to undergo a procedure do.  This is because the most common area for a dog to bite an individual is the facial area (lips, nose, and cheeks).

The case was filed in the Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac, Michigan.  The parties agreed to a confidential settlement prior to trial.

Seeking any type of medical treatment after a dog attack can sometimes be a complicated process.  Victims are entitled to payment of any medical expenses incurred by the injury, this includes immediate care and even plastic surgery if required.  Filing a dog bite liability claim will help victims recover these bill expenses, as well as compensation for their pain and suffering, time spent away from work, and more.
