According to Michigan law, if a dog bites a person, without provocation, while the person is on public property, or lawfully on private property, including the property of the owner of the dog, the owner of the dog is be liable for any damages suffered by the person bitten, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness.

Our client suffered several dog bite injuries including: bites, permanent scarring to his right wrist and forearm, as well as scrapes to his left leg and shin. The lawsuit is seeking damages for pain and suffering and disfigurement against his neighbor and land lord’s homeowner’s insurance for injuries suffered in the accident.

According to DogBite.org, each day, about 1,000 U.S. citizens require emergency care treatment for a dog bite injury. In addition, it was found that pit bulls are found responsible for more than 60% of death and injuries associated with dog attacks. However, an individual must note that even though certain dog breeds are more dangerous than others, it does not necessarily mean that every dog of that breed is dangerous.
