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.

What are Dog Bite Laws in Michigan?

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.

What are 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
