Waterford Dog Bite Lawsuit Settlement

Our Michigan dog attack lawyers recently settled a claim for a 46-year-old woman who was knocked to the ground by a Rottweiler owned by a neighbor that attacked the Sheepdogs she was walking in her neighborhood.   The incident occurred in Waterford, Michigan.

 The incident occurred as our client was walking her two Sheepdogs on the sidewalk in her neighborhood. During the walk, they passed by a dog owner who was standing in the street with her Rottweiler on a retractable leash.  The dog owner was standing next to an SUV talking to the woman inside.   As they passed by, the Rottweiler charged the Sheepdogs causing the leash to retract and in so doing knocked both a Sheepdog and our client to the ground.

The dog owner was aware that her dog and our client’s dogs have had encounters in the past and she was also aware that our client was walking her dogs down the sidewalk. Despite this knowledge, she  neglected to properly control her dog and lock the leash when our client came walking by. In this case, however, the story of the incident was disputed as both the dog owner and the woman in the SUV testified that our client was never knocked to the ground in the incident. Our client sustained leg pain and knee strain for which she attended multiple sessions of physical therapy and was prescribed medication. 

 We filed a lawsuit on her behalf seeking compensation against the dog owner for pain and suffering and medical expenses. Depositions were taken of the parties and medical records were exchanged.  The case proceeded to case  evaluation, and the evaluation panel award $15,000.00 on the case. Both parties accepted the case evaluation award and the case settled for same.
