Pit Bull Attack Settlement for Child

Our Clare County Michigan pit bull dog attack lawyers recently settled a claim for a 7 year old boy.  The minor client was attacked by a pit bull dog while being babysat by a neighbor. Our client suffered serious injuries in the pit bull attack, including scars on his scalp, arm, and a fractured orbital bone. The minor client was taken to the emergency room immediately after the attack. No lawsuit was filed on behalf of the minor.  The claim was settled with the insurance company pre-suit. The case was settled for $55,000.00.

Often times, a dog attack does occur at the property of a neighbor, friend, or acquaintance. Nonetheless, if the person is bitten while lawfully on the property, the owner or keeper of the dog can be held liable for the injuries under Michigan law. In fact, there are several dog bite laws in Michigan that can be used in favor of the victim and hold the dog owner liable. The main statute, called the Michigan dog bite statute, clearly states that an owner of the dog is liable and can be sued for a victims injuries.

If you or a family member is bitten or attacked by 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 the 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.
