Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. often represent clients injured by dog bite and attacks. These often result in severe scars and injuries that require medical treatment. We have obtained significant Michigan settlements for clients injured in these types of dog bite attacks.

The American Humane Association states, approximately 4.7 million dog bites occur in the U.S. each year. Out of the 4.7 million dog bites that occur, nearly 800,000 require medical care costing $1 billion in claims every year. In most cases fatal dog bites attacks occur from male dogs that aren’t neutered, chained dogs, and unrestrained dogs.

Dog bites normally happen on the arms, legs, hands, and feet causing serious injuries and even scarring. Below are the most common dog bite injuries.

  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement resulting from scars
  • Infection
  • Bone fracture injury
  • Rabies
  • Nerve damage

Around 70 percent of dog bite fatalities occur among children under 10 years of age. In addition, children who are 5-9 years of age are increasingly more likely at risk of getting bitten. Statistics also show that 65 percent of bites among children occur to the head and neck of the child.

Because dogs can develop a tremendous force when biting, x-ray studies might be necessary to determine underlying bone and joint injury. Fractured bones must be set. Nerve injuries must be repaired. Depending on the type of bite, the wounds may be closed. If the damage is not extensive, the wounds may be closed with tape or sutures.
