Michigan Dog Bite Injury & Attack Cases
Victims and their families can file a lawsuit against the dog owner for the injuries suffered. A lawsuit for a Michigan dog bite must be filed with the court, unless the insurance company settles the claim sooner. Once the lawsuit is filed, a claim for damages and losses is made and proof of the dog bite attack injury is documented through medical records, medical bills, photographs, and any witnesses that were at the scene of the attack. In fact, our Michigan dog bite lawyers recommend victims to take photos and descriptions of the place where the attack occurred to help assist your case and get the best possible dog bite settlement.
Other useful evidence a victim should collect at the time of the attack include the names of the dog and dog owner, the dog owner’s address, addresses and names of people who witnessed the attack, and medical evaluation of the wound by the treating physician. In situations in which a victim dies due to the injuries suffered in the dog attack, the family can file a Michigan wrongful death claim for the loss of their loved one.
