Our Royal Oak dog bite lawyers recently settled a claim on behalf of a woman who was bitten in the face by a co-worker’s dog. She went to the home to get a new puppy and the puppy was outside in the front yard. She was given permission to enter the home to use the bathroom. When she entered into the home, she took one step in and the family’s Great Dane lunged at her face and bit her lip. After the bite, she went to the porch holding her face and the family assisted her.
Our client suffered a bite on the lower lip and received treatment, including stitches, at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. We were able to reach a settlement with the homeowner’s insurance company, AAA Michigan, prior to filing a lawsuit. The insurance company settlement included the claim for the scar and the emergency room medical bill.
