Choosing the best dog bite lawyer for your case is an important decision.  The lawyer you choose is often the difference between winning a great settlement or receiving no settlement at all.

Insurance companies and their lawyers know which dog bite lawyers get the maximum settlements for their clients and which ones look for quick, low settlements.  The Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. dog bite lawyers have won substantial settlements and jury verdicts for our clients for almost 50 years.  The insurance adjusters know that they will have to pay the maximum settlement when our Southfield law firm is handling your case.

Under Michigan law, a dog owner is strictly liable to the victim of a bite or attack under the Michigan Dog Bite Statute.  This means that under the law, the person attacked is entitled as a matter of law to compensation for the injuries suffered in the attack.  There are very few exceptions to this rule, but they include if the victim is a trespasser or provoked the dog into the attack. Typically, the dog owner’s homeowners insurance or renters insurance will pay the settlement.

We represent dog bite victims under our NO FEE PROMISE. This means that you will not be charged any legal fees whatsoever unless we obtain a settlement or recovery for you. You have absolutely no obligation for legal fees unless we win your case. If we do not obtain a settlement for you, you owe us nothing!

It is important that you contact our Southfield dog bite lawyers as soon as possible after the attack to give you the best chance of winning your case. Call our expert attorneys now at (800) 606-1717 or simply submit the contact form on this page we will get back to you quickly.
