Suing For Dog Bite Injuries in Michigan | MI Dog Bite Claim

The dog bite injury lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C.  have significant experience in filing Michigan dog bite claims on behalf of a Michigan dog bite injury victim.  The dog attack claim is a lawsuit in which our attorneys sue for dog bite injuries resulting from the attack.  These types of lawsuits seek compensation for personal injury damages, including pain and suffering and payment of medial bills incurred due to the dog attack, such as plastic surgery.

A victim bitten or attacked by a dog in Michigan should be aware that they do have the legal right to sue for the dog bite. Under Michigan law, the person who owns, keeps, or harbors the dog responsible for the attack, regardless of prior knowledge (called “strict liability” laws) of the viciousness of the animal is held liable for the injuries resulting to the victim.  In fact, under Michigan law, the only defense a dog owner has in a dog bite claim is if the victim provoked the attack or was on the dog owners property illegally.

Our Michigan dog bite injury attorneys represent both adults and children suffering injuries after being attacked or bitten by a dog.  Our clients include a wide range of dog bite victims, including neighbors, house guests, joggers, postal workers, and others who are bitten on public property, private homes, and businesses.

It is important that after a dog attack you hire an experienced attorney to represent you in your Michigan dog bite case.  One reason behind this concept is because you will never want to sign a Release or any other paperwork with the insurance company withouth having it reviewed by an experienced dog bite attorney.  This is because the Release form may include language that can hurt your claim in the future. 

In addition, you will need to go to court for approval of settlement if the lawsuit if filed on behalf of a minor or a child, therefore it is a good idea to have an attorney on your side as they should have experience in the court room. However, the most important reason why you should have an experienced dog bite attorney represent you and file your dog bite claim is because often times your settlement amount will be substantially higher due to the fact that an attorney is there to negotiate with the insurance adjuster on your behalf.  This in fact will result in more settlement money for you, even after paying an attorney fee.
