Michigan Lawsuit For Unleashed Dog Attack Settles

The Michigan dog bite attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently settled a lawsuit on behalf of a client who suffered injuries in an Owosso dog attack. Our client suffered dog bite injuries and marks on the right side of her back.  Due to the injuries suffered, she was taken to the local hospital where they gave her a tetanus shot, medication, and bandage, as well as attend to follow up appointments to her family doctor.

The lawsuit arose out of a dog attack that took place on a public dirt road.  Our client was walking along Osaukie Road, a street in her neighborhood, when a neighbors dog ran from the front yard and bit her on the back.  At the time of the attack, the neighbor who owned the dog was standing in her front yard.  The dog was unleasvicious dog attackshed.

Being attacked and bitten by a neighbor’s dog is unfortunately a very common incident.  In fact, often times, these attacks do occur because the dog was unleashed or unchained and runs into the the street or somewhere else in the neighborhood and attacks.  A person bitten by a neighbor’s dog does have legal rights to sue the neighbor.  Even though this sometimes can present an uncomfortable situation between two neighbors, the reality is in these cases, the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance company usually pays a settlement for the dog bite victim.  Therefore, if both neighbors act in a civil manner after the attack they can still maintain their relationship after the victim is fairly compensated for their injuries.
