A dog bite or attack can leave a significant scar or disifigurement on the face of the dog bite victim. Many times, the bite victim will want to have the scar improved or minimized through plastic surgery. The cost of this plastic surgery from a dog bite can be very expensive and quite often the dog attack victim cannot afford the expense.
Under Michigan law, the dog bite victim can claim as a part of damages in a dog bite lawsuit the past and future medical expenses caused by the dog bite. This includes the expense of plastic surgery to improve or minimize the scar. Our Michigan dog bite lawyers will determine the expense of future surgeries and include that in our demand for a settlement, along with the pain and suffering and other emotional damages suffered due to you being bitten by a dog.
