Michigan Dog Bite Injury Lawsuit Settles For Bite On Face At Relative’s Home

Our dog bite injury lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently settled a Michigan lawsuit on behalf of our client who was bitten by relative’s dog. The attack happened while she was having dinner at her relative’s home. The dog that attacked was currently on medications, and the relative dog owners were advised by their veterinarian that the dog was to be locked up when other people were at their home.

Our client was a thirteen-year-old girl and she was bitten on the face. She suffers a bite above her lip which required twenty-one stitches. She also suffered from permanent scarring due to the dog attack. The lawsuit settled for $77,000.00. The homeowner’s insurance company for the dog owner paid the settlement.

Often times, a dog attack will happen by a relative’s dog. In these cases, the dog owner’s insurance company usually pays a settlement to the dog bite victim. Family members do not have to worry about the relative paying a settlement out of their own pockets and insurance rates usually do not increase after this type of settlement payment. Therefore, if both neighbors act in a civil manner after the Michigan attack, they can still maintain their relationship after the victim is fairly compensated for the dog bite injuries.

If you or a family member is attacked or bitten by a relative’s dog, you should contact our Michigan dog bite injury lawyers as soon as possible after the attack so that we can explain your legal rights to you and begin our investigation of the claim. We will represent you under our No Fee Promise, which means we do not charge any legal fees or costs until we win your settlement. Call today at (800) 606-1717.
