Monroe Dog Bite Lawyers: Lawsuits & Settlements

Monroe Dog Bite LawyersOur dog bite lawyers can help you if you were injured in an Monroe dog bite attack. These attacks often result in serious injuries, including lacerations, puncture wounds, nerve damage, and broken bones.  Dog bite victims incur hospital and medical expenses for their treatment and often need plastic surgery for scars and disfigurements caused by a bite.

We have obtained significant settlements and verdicts for our clients injured in these dog bite attacks. Compensation is paid for pain and suffering, disfigurement, medical expenses, and lost wages. We can help you or someone you care about win the best settlement for your case.

Michigan Dog Bite Laws

Many cities and counties have ordinances regarding dogs and the responsibilities of dog owners.  An owner or keeper of a dog who violates any of these ordinances can be held liable for damages in a civil lawsuit to a dog bite victim.  The ordinances can be used to prove a case in addition to other Michigan dog bite laws.

Monroe Dog Bite Laws

In Monroe, there are laws that apply to dog owners.  These can be found in the Monroe City Ordinances.  Specifically, they are as follows:

ARTICLE II –DEFINITIONS

D) “Animal” means any dog, cat, or other mammal, bird, fish, or reptile.

 E) “Animal at Large” means any animal, excluding commonly domesticated cats, that:

a. Is not physically restrained on private property (including motorized vehicles) with the permission of the property owner, in a manner that physically prevents that animal from leaving that property or reaching any public areas; or,

b. When not in compliance with subsection (a), is not restrained by a leash, tether, or other physical control device not to exceed six (6) feet in length and under the physical control of a responsible person

H) “Attack” means to attempt to cause injury or otherwise forcefully endanger the safety of people or other animals.

Monroe Dog Bite Reports

Quite often, the victim of the attack files a report with either the local police or local Animal Control agency.  When a report is filed, it is necessary to obtain the report. Our firm routinely obtains these for our clients. For a report filed with police department in Monroe, you should request the Animal Control report at the following location:
