Our Michigan dog bite lawyers represent victims of dog bite attacks. Our experienced attorneys get compensation and settlements for our clients in cases throughout the entire State of Michigan. We help you win the highest possible settlement for your dog bite case.
Our clients include children, adults, postal workers, service providers, and utility workers. We can help you if you or someone you care about suffered injuries in a dog attack.
Many times, the person bitten by the dog is a friend, relative, or neighbor of the dog owner. While his may present an uncomfortable situation, we assure everyone involved that our intent is only to seek a settlement from homeowner’s insurance company for the dog owner. This reduces the strain on a good relationship and prevents bad feelings amongst friends and family in the future.
Dog bite settlements include compensation for pain and suffering, disfiguring scars, payment of medical expenses and hospital bills, as well as lost wages for time missed from work. We have won significant settlement and jury verdicts in Michigan dog bite cases.
Michigan Dog Bite Laws
There are Michigan dog bite laws set forth in state statutes and under local ordinances. Owners and keepers of dogs in Michigan are strictly liable for dog bites and attacks. This means that the dog bite victim does not have to prove that the dog owner was negligent, only that he or she was bitten or attacked. There are additional leash laws that provide a legal basis for filing a lawsuit.
Common Types of Michigan Dog Bite Injuries
We can get you a settlement for injuries caused by a dog attack. Compensation is paid for your:
- Pain and suffering
- Disfigurement resulting from scars & lacerations
- Bone Fractures
- Nerve Damage
- Medical bills and expenses
- Lost wages
In addition to physical injuries, a dog bite victim often suffers from psychological damages as well. These psychological damages can include, but are not limited to, nightmares, post-traumatic stress syndrome, humiliation and embarrassment.
How We Help Your After a Dog Bite or Attack
Our legal team will get all dog bite and animal control reports, medical records, and medical bills. We contact the insurance company for the dog owner and deal directly with the insurance adjuster for you. We often hire a forensic photographer to take pictures of your scars and wounds to show the insurance adjuser the seriousness of your injuries. When then negotiate with the insurer to obtain you the maximum possible settlement for your case. If you do not receive a fair settlement offer, we file a dog bite lawsuit on your behalf.
