How To Win A Michigan Dog Bite Settlement

To win a Michigan dog bite settlement, you must first prove that the owner of the dog is legally liable for your injuries.  This is very straightforward in Michigan under both the Michigan Dog Bite Statute and under common law negligence.  Essentially, the owner or harborer of a dog is automatically liable if a dog bites you on public property and in most instances on private property.  The only exceptions are if you are a trespasser on private property or if you provoked the dog attack.  Otherwise, you are entitled to a settlement.

Choosing the best attorney for your case is the most important decision that you will make for your dog bite claim.  These factors go into winning the highest possible settlement for your case:

-The severity and type of your injuries
-The location of any scar or disfigurement
-The permanency of any scar or disfigurement
-Your age and gender
-Any psychological trauma you suffered from the dog bite  attack
-Any psychological injuries caused by the scars
-The amount of medical treatment received for your dog bite injuries
-Any  future medical care and treatment that you may require
-The amount of medical bills incurred due to the dog attack
-The amount of lost wages you have incurred due to the dog bite attack
-Whether the dog owner has insurance to pay a settlement
-The city or county where the accident occurred
-The lawyer that you have chosen to handle your Michigan dog bite case

Unfortunately, there is no “settlement calculator” to enter this information into determine the reasonable settlement amount.  Every dog bite case is different and determining the fair settlement amount requires careful analysis by an experienced Michigan dog bite lawyer.
