Michigan Dog Bite Lawyer Settles Attack Lawsuit for Two-Year-Old Victim

Our Michigan dog bite lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently settled a Lansing dog bite lawsuit behalf of our client, a twi-year-old boy who was attacked and bitten in the face by a dog. Our client suffered minor wounds to his face causing substantial scarring, disfigurement and pain and suffering.

According to reports, dog bites in children happen frequently and influenced by the breed-related behavior of dogs, dog owners, children,and parents. In fact, children who are younger than 10 years represent the high-risk group for dog attacks.

Under Michigan law 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 is liable if the injury occurred because the dog owner was unreasonably careless in controlling the dog.

Our expert dog bite injury attorneys were able to settle the lawsuit before going to court.  The insurance company for the dog owner paid a settlement of $45,000.00 to compensate for the little boy’s pain and suffering and medical costs related to the attack.
