Novi Dog Bite Attorney Files Lawsuit For Child

Our Novi dog bite lawyers recently filed a lawsuit for a child bitten on the face while playing at a relative’s home.  The six year old girl was at a relative’s house when the family dog bit her on the arm and face.  She suffered puncture wounds and lacerations and was taken to the emergency room for treatment.  She has scars as a result of the dog attack.

Filing a claim against relative often puts family members in an uncomfortable situation.  In cases involving dog bites, the claim is really against the homeowner’s insurance company and does not seek any type of settlement directly from the relative.  Once the family understands this situation, there is usually no tension between the relatives.  In fact, the dog owners are usually relieved that the child will be compensated because they feel guilty about the attack, even if the dog has never bitten anyone in the past.  These claims help to compensate the child and get all medical bills paid to date and set aside money for possible medical treatment in the future.

The lawsuit seeks compensation for pain and suffering, fright and shock, and the disfiguring scars caused by the dog bite attack.  It also seeks payment of medical expenses.  No trial date has been set by the court.

Macomb County Dog Bite Attorney Files Lawsuit

Our Macomb County dog bite lawyers recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a four year old girl.   The girl was at a neighbor’s home playing with another child at the house.   The family’s golden retriever attacked the young girl without provocation and bit her in the face.  The incident was investigated by the Macomb Sheriff Department and Macomb County Animal Control. 

The dog bite the face caused a number of punctures wounds and lacerations on her face, head, and ear.   She was taken to the hospital for emergency treatment and care.  The bit caused permanent scars and disfigurements to her face.

The dog bite lawsuit was filed in the Macomb County Circuit Court in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.  The case seeks compensation for the scars, disfigurement, fright and shock, and other non-economic damages.  The suit also seeks payment of medical expenses to date and money for future plastic surgery to repair the scars when the girl becomes a teenager. 

The lawsuit was brought by the parents of the girl.   Under Michigan law, a person under the age of 18 years old cannot bring a lawsuit on their own.  Rather, a parent files the lawsuit on behalf of the child.   The case proceeds as all other cases but the parties cannot agree to a settlement without a judge approving of the settlement.  This is the court system’s way of looking out for the best interests of the child.   No date has been set for a jury trial in this matter.

Can A Parent File a Michigan Dog Bite Lawsuit For A Child?

Parents in Michigan can file a Michigan dog bite lawsuit or claim for their child.  Under Michigan law, a person cannot bring their own lawsuit until the age of 18.  However, a parent, guardian, or other family member can bring the claim on behalf of the child.  This is a common occurrence for dog bite cases.

The process for parents filing dog bite claims for a child is relatively simple.  First, it is important to contact an experienced Michigan dog bite lawyer to assist you with the claim.  There are specific requirements for bringing claims on behalf of a child and the failure to follow those procedures can ruin the case.

For example, a parent cannot agree to a settlement with an insurance company without getting the permission from a judge to settle the claim.  The judge will want to see the child’s injuries in person to make sure that the settlement was fair and in the child’s best interest.  A parent or guardian cannot even sign the Release of All Claims for the settlement without getting approval from the court first.

Also, the settlement funds must be placed in an account that prohibits the money from being spent without court permission.  There are specific forms that must be filed with the county probate court to even set up this account in the first place.  Many times, the settlement money is used to buy an insurance policy that provides payments for college and other needs after the child turns 18 years old.  Again, the court must approve the terms of this policy.

Determining the settlement value of a child dog bite is a job for an attorney that has handled these cases in the past.  There are many considerations that go into the amount of the settlement and the experienced lawyers at our firm know how to get the maximum possible settlement in these cases.   Once you agree to a settlement you cannot come back at a later date and ask for more money, so it is important that you have the best legal representation to get you or your child the highest settlement and to make sure that all legal procedures have been followed with the courts.
