My daughter was attacked by a neighbor's dog and was bitten in the facein Livonia . I have heard about dog bite cases and want to knowif the owner of the dog responsible?

Yes, unless the owner of the dog can prove that your child provoked the dog into the attack by pulling the tail or some other similar act.   The dog's owner is liable for past, present, and future medical expenses, which would include the cost of plastic surgery. Your child can also claim other damages, such as the disfigurement, fright and shock, and embarrassment.  The dog owner's insurance company typically pays the settlement.
