Dog Bite Settlement Amounts & Compensation

Dog bite settlement amounts and compensation in Michigan are based upon a number of factors.  These include:

  • The severity and type of your injuries (lacerations, puncture wounds, nerve damage)
  • The location of any scar or disfigurement (scars on the face, arms, legs)
  • The permanency of any scar or disfigurement
  • Your age and gender
  • Any psychological trauma you suffered from the dog bite attack
  • Any psychological injuries caused by the scars
  • The amount of medical treatment received for your dog bite injuries
  • Any future medical care and treatment that you may require
  • The amount of medical bills incurred due to the dog attack
  • The amount of lost wages you have incurred due to the dog bite attack
  • Whether the dog owner has insurance to pay a settlement and the policy limits
  • The city or county where the accident occurred
  • The lawyer that you have chosen to handle your Michigan dog bite case

There is no “settlement calculator” to determine the right settlement amount. Every dog bite case is different and determining your settlement amount requires a review by an experienced Michigan dog bite lawyer.  We are able to look at all of the factors and then recommend the appropriate settlement amount and compensation for your case.  We then negotiate the highest possible settlement with the insurance company.
