Woman Bitten By Dog Sues For Nerve Damage In Hand

We recently filed a dog bite lawsuit for a 37 year old woman bitten on her dominant hand by a dog.  She was getting her haircut at the stylist’s home when the family dog bit her in the hand.  She suffered puncture wounds to her hand that have resulted in permanent nerve damage.  The damage to the nerves was confirmed by her doctor after an EMG study.

The lawsuit was filed in the Macomb County Circuit Court in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.  The case seeks compensation for her pain and suffering, disability, lost wages, and medical expenses.  No trial date has been set by the court.

Under Michigan law, the dog owner is liable for the injures caused by the dog bite attack.  Our client was lawfully on the property and did nothing to provoke the attack.  We expect to win her a substantial settlement in the case.

Royal Oak Dog Bite Lawyer Settles Bite On Face Case

Our Royal Oak dog bite lawyers recently settled a claim on behalf of a woman who was bitten in the face by a co-worker’s dog.  She went to the home to get a new puppy and the puppy was outside in the front yard.  She was given permission to enter the home to use the bathroom.  When she entered into the home, she took one step in and the family’s Great Dane lunged at her face and bit her lip.  After the bite, she went to the porch holding her face and the family assisted her.

Our client suffered a bite on the lower lip and received treatment, including stitches, at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak.  We were able to reach a settlement with the homeowner’s insurance company, AAA Michigan, prior to filing a lawsuit.  The insurance company settlement included the claim for the scar and the emergency room medical bill.

Dog Bite Lawyer Settles Michigan Injury Lawsuit

Our Michigan dog bite lawyers settled an injury claim for a twelve year old child in Branch County, Michigan. The child was bitten by a dog and suffered a laceration in his forearm. He required stitches to repair the laceration and was left with a minor scar. The dog was owned by a neighbor.

Quite often, a person suffers injuries when they are bitten by a neighbor’s dog. This happens when an unleashed or unchained dog runs into the neighbor’s yard or attacks a person in the street or somewhere else in the neighborhood. It also occurs when one neighbor is visiting the other neighbor and the dog attacks at that time.

If you or your child suffers serious injuries from the neighbor’s dog, you can sue your neighbor. Michigan law holds the person who owns, keeps, or harbors the dog responsible for a dog bite or attack, regardless of prior knowledge (called, “strict liability” laws) of the viciousness of the animal.

Also, the negligence law is used to hold the owner responsible for the attack. This means that the dog owner, which could be your neighbor, is liable if the injury occurred because the dog owner was unreasonably careless in controlling the dog. The only defense to the dog owner in these cases is if the victim provoked the attacked or was a trespasser on the property. In these cases, the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance company usually pays a settlement to the dog bite victims.

This matter was settled pre-suit with State Farm Insurance Company. The homeowner’s insurance company for the dog owner paid a settlement of $24,000 to the child. His funds will be placed in a trust until he turns eighteen years old.
