Michigan Child Dog Bite Lawyers

Michigan Child Injury Dog Bite Lawsuit LawyersThe dog bite lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. represent children injured in dog bite attacks. These often result in severe lacerations, scars and injuries on a child that require medical treatment and plastic surgery. We have obtained significant settlements for children bitten by dogs in Michigan.

The American Humane Association states, approximately 4.7 million dog bites occur in the U.S. each year. Out of the 4.7 million dog bites that occur, nearly 800,000 require medical care costing $1 billion in claims every year. In most cases fatal dog bites attacks occur from male dogs that are not’t neutered, chained dogs, and unrestrained dogs.

Dog bites on a child are unfortunately all too common. Researchers have suggested the main cause of aggression in dogs, especially against kids, stems from territorial behavior.  Reasons that dogs bite children often include:

  • Children under the age of 6 were more likely to be bitten when a dog felt the kids were threatening to take his food or toys.
  • Older children were bitten when the dog felt the children were intruding on his territory.
  • A dog was more likely to bite a child he knew while the dog was guarding his food.

Dog bites on a child are painful and frightening. A bite on the face of child can lead to permanent scarring and disfigurement. Quite often, a child may need plastic surgery to correct the scar later in life.  A child with a visible scar will often feel self-conscious and be withdrawn around other children. 

Child Dog Bite Settlements & Compensation

Child dog bite claims demand compensations and settlements for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement resulting from scars
  • Psychological damages (nightmares, fear of dogs, etc.)
  • Infection
  • Bone fracture injury
  • Rabies
  • Nerve damage

Settlements in Michigan dog bite lawsuits are typically paid by the homeowner’s insurance company for the dog owner.  These settlements can be significant if the child suffered multiple bites or had an injury requiring medical treatment.  Our experienced dog bite lawyers can help your child obtain the maximum possible settlement.
