$142,500 Royal Oak Dog Bite Settlement For Child

Our Royal Oak dog bite lawyers recently settled a lawsuit for a 9 year old boy bitten in the face by a neighbor’s dog.  He was at his friend’s house down the street playing with some other neighborhood kids.  The family’s dog, a black Labrador retriever, approached him.  When he went to pet the dog, he was bitten on the face.   Witnesses to the attack did not see the boy do anything to provoke the dog.

The dog bite to the face caused a significant laceration and the boy was taken to the emergency department at  William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan.  He was seen by a plastic surgeon who cleaned up the wound and put stitches in his face to close the wound.  Despite the prompt treatment, it has left a significant disfiguring scar just above his lip.   He was seen by another plastic surgeon who recommended a revision once the boy reaches adolescence.  This would minimize the scar but it is expected that an observable scar will exist even after the surgery.

Our attorneys filed the dog bite lawsuit against the dog owner in the Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac, Michigan.   The lawsuit sought money compensation for the pain and suffering, scar and disfigurement, medical expenses, and future costs of plastic surgery.   Prior to trial, the homeowner’s insurance company for the dog owner agreed to pay a settlement of $142,500.00 to settle the case.

The child’s parents elected to have the majority of his settlement money placed into a structured settlement insurance policy.  This will provide a college fund and additional money when the boy reaches the age of 18.  There will be some funds available before that age to pay for plastic surgery and other necessary expenses.   The circuit court judge approved the settlement.

If you or your child were bitten by a dog in Royal Oak, put our experienced dog bite lawyers to work for you.  We charge no legal fees until you receive a settlement and we pay all court costs and expenses.

Get Compensation For Dog Bites & Attacks

You may be entitled to get compensation if you were bitten or attacked by a dog in Michigan.  While there are no set guidelines for determining the compensation or settlement amount, there are several factors that are used to evaluate the amount of money for compensation.    Dog bite settlement amounts are often based upon similar cases and the results achieved by the lawyer for the dog bite victim in other cases.  Insurance companies have their own methods in determining how much compensation to pay the victim.

Some of the factors that determine the compensation for a Michigan dog bite claim include:

  • The facts surrounding the dog bite attack
  • The location where dog bite attack occurred
  • If there was any provocation for the dog attack
  • If the dog owner has insurance coverage for the attack
  • The amount of the insurance policy limits if there was coverage
  • The type and location of the injuries (arms, face, legs)
  • The type of medical treatment needed to date
  • The type of medical treatment needed in the future
  • If the scars and disfigurements are permanent in nature
  • The age and sex of the victim
  • The amount of medical bills related to the dog bite attack
  • The amount of lost wages resulting from the attack

Settlements in dog bite cases are often substantial.  Compensation is paid for pain and suffering, scars and disfigurement, psychological damages, medical expenses and lost wages.  Our lawyers have obtained millions of dollars in settlements for our dog bite clients.

Waterford Dog Bite Lawsuit Settlement

Our Michigan dog attack lawyers recently settled a claim for a 46-year-old woman who was knocked to the ground by a Rottweiler owned by a neighbor that attacked the Sheepdogs she was walking in her neighborhood.   The incident occurred in Waterford, Michigan.

 The incident occurred as our client was walking her two Sheepdogs on the sidewalk in her neighborhood. During the walk, they passed by a dog owner who was standing in the street with her Rottweiler on a retractable leash.  The dog owner was standing next to an SUV talking to the woman inside.   As they passed by, the Rottweiler charged the Sheepdogs causing the leash to retract and in so doing knocked both a Sheepdog and our client to the ground.

The dog owner was aware that her dog and our client’s dogs have had encounters in the past and she was also aware that our client was walking her dogs down the sidewalk. Despite this knowledge, she  neglected to properly control her dog and lock the leash when our client came walking by. In this case, however, the story of the incident was disputed as both the dog owner and the woman in the SUV testified that our client was never knocked to the ground in the incident. Our client sustained leg pain and knee strain for which she attended multiple sessions of physical therapy and was prescribed medication. 

 We filed a lawsuit on her behalf seeking compensation against the dog owner for pain and suffering and medical expenses. Depositions were taken of the parties and medical records were exchanged.  The case proceeded to case  evaluation, and the evaluation panel award $15,000.00 on the case. Both parties accepted the case evaluation award and the case settled for same.

 If you or a family member is bitten or attacked by a dog that was unrestrained, you should contact our Michigan dog bite lawyers as soon as possible at     800-606-1717 after the attack so that  we can explain your legal rights to you and begin our investigation of your claim.  We will represent you under our no fee promise, which means we do not charge any legal fees or costs until we win your settlement.
