Child Dog Bite To Face Lawsuit Filed in St. Joseph County Michigan

The child dog bite attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently filed a St. Joseph County Michigan lawsuit for a one-year-old toddler girl attacked by a pit bull.  The dog attack took place in the City of Sturgis. The toddler suffered serious injuries from the attack, including permanent scarring resulting from two large bite marks on her check and a bite mark on her forehead.

Without provocation, the pit bull dog attacked the toddler girl while she and her mother were visiting a family friend who was dog-sitting.  The child dog bite to face lawsuit seeks damages for the pain and suffering damages, outstanding medical expenses related to our client’s, the toddlers, treatment and care, as well as all damages related to residual scarring that the dog bites left on the toddler girl’s face and forehead.

In addition, to current medical expenses, the dog bite lawsuit also seeks compensation for future medical expenses related t plastic surgery that will be required.  The dog-sitter did have insurance through Auto Owners which will provide coverage in this matter. No trial date has been set by the court.

It is very common when a child is attacked by a dog, that they are bitten in the facial region.  Often times, when this happens plastic surgery is required later on in life.  In fact, depending on the age of the child at the time of the attack, many surgeons will not perform surgical revisions until the child reaches early adulthood.
