Dog Bite Lawsuit Filed For Livonia Dog Attack

A dog bite lawsuit was recently filed by the Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. Michigan attorneys in the Wayne County Circuit Court.  The lawsuit was filed on behalf of our client, a 28-year-old attacked and bitten by a dog in Livonia, Michigan.  Our client was working outside a home installing windows when the neighbor’s German Shepherd lunged across the fence separating the yards and attacked and bit him on the back.  He suffers serious residual scarring on the back after the Livonia dog attack.

Dog bite wounds that bleed will inevitably result in scars.  The quesiton is whether they will be disfiguring, disabling, or painful.  Some types of skin produce keloid scars (i.e. scar tissue grows out of control, frequently producting raised, disfiguring scars).  Small scars may fade away.  Otherwise, scars may be improved but never removed.  The type and severity of the scar depends on many factors, some of which are unrelated to the injury and involve our genetic predisposition.  The severity of the injury also plays an important role in the severity of the scar.

Repair of wounds may require simple closure, removal of injured tissue, and reconstructive surgery.  Underlying nerve and bone injuries may need repair.  Sometimes completely severed tissue can be replaced as a graft or reattached with microsurgical repair of tiny blood vessels.  Sometimes doctors have to move other tissue into the defect to close or recreate the disfigured feature.  Such reconstruction may need multiple operation over several years.

If you or someone you know was bitten and attacked by a dog, you do have legal rights.  Under Michigan law, the person who owns, keeps, or harbors the dog is responsible for a dog bite or attack, regardless of prior knowledge of the viciousness of the animal.  For more information about filing a Michigan dog bite lawsuit, call our office immediately at (800) 606-1717 to speak with on e of our experienced expert dog attack attorneys.  We will start working on your case immediately, gathering all the evidence and witness statements to prove and win your case.
