On September 5, 2015, our client and his dog were attacked by defendant’s dog while walking in their Royal Oak, Michigan neighborhood. The defendant’s dog was a large Siberian Husky. Our client’s hand was bitten as he attempted to save his dog from being attacked. Our client sustained an injury to his dominant ring finger which required emergency medical attention and follow-up care that included several months of physical therapy. Our client's dog required sutures to close a severe wound to its torso.
