Best Settlements in Michigan Dog Bite Cases

If you suffered a dog bite in Michigan or were injured in a dog attack, you may be entitled to a settlement for your injuries.  Most often, the settlement will be paid by the homeowner’s insurance company for the owner or keeper of the dog that bit you.   This is true even if you were bitten or attacked by a dog owned by your relative or neighbor, or if bitten while visiting the home of a friend.  If you suffered your dog bite injury at a business, the business insurance company will pay the settlement.

Getting the best and highest settlement for your Michigan dog bite injuries depends on several factors.  These include:

  • 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
  • If you have suffered psychological trauma from the dog attack
  • If you have suffered psychological injuries from your scars
  • The type of medical care and treatment you received for your injuries
  • The type of future medical care and treatment that you may need
  • The amount of medical bills and expenses paid by you and your insurance company
  • Any lost wages you have incurred due to the dog bite attack
  • The amount of the insurance policy limits available for your injuries
  • The city or county where the accident occurred
  • The lawyer that you have chosen to handle your Michigan dog bite case

As you can see, there are a substantial number of factors that go into determining the fair settlement for your case.  Unfortunately, there is no “settlement calculator” to plug this information into and arrive at the appropriate number.  Simply put, every single dog bite case is different and determining the fair settlement amount requires careful analysis by an experienced Michigan dog bite lawyer.
