Our firm has represented dog bite victims and their families for over 40 years throughout the State of Michigan, and has the knowledge, expertise, and experience in handling these types of cases.

Research shows that approximately 1,000 people across the U.S. get bitten by a dog each day and require some kind of medical treatment. In addition, dog bites account for one-third of all homeowners’ insurance claims, with an average payout of nearly $30,000 per claim. Since insurance companies get a substantial amount of submission claims annually, insurance companies try to find loopholes to deny some injured dog bite victim’s claims. What this means for a dog bite victim is getting your medical bills paid could be like pulling the insurance companies teeth.

There are several types of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits available to Michigan dog attack victims. These include full payment of medical expenses including future treatments such as plastic surgery, pain and suffering damages, lost wages and more. Too often, the insurance company either unlawfully terminates or cuts off the benefits or underpays the proper amount of those benefits.

According to research, owning certain dog breeds can increase your risk of having higher premiums and/ or an exclusion that could leave you on the hook for damages depending on your insurance company. These breeds include:

  1. Staffordshire Bull Terrier
  2. Pitbull
  3. American Staffordshire Terriers
  4. Bull Terrier
  5. Doberman Pinscher
  6. Rottweiler
  7. Akita
  8. Siberian Husky
  9. Malamute
  10. German Shepherd
  11. Cane Corso
  12. Mastiff
