MICHIGAN DOG BITE LAWYER
A dog bite can be a traumatic event that results in significant injury. A dog bite may result in permanent scarring, nerve damage, and a significant risk of infection. Michigan dog bite law is considered a “strict liability” statute. In other words, the law makes a dog owner responsible for any bite injury the dog causes to an individual.
Michigan Dog Bite Statute-MCL 287.351, states:
If a dog bites a person, without provocation while the person is on public property, or lawfully on private property, including the property of the owner of the dog, the owner of the dog shall be liable for any damages suffered by the person bitten, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness.
Many dog bite cases do not involve extensive medical treatment but the dog bite leaves permanent scarring that you will have to live with forever. It is your legal right to be compensated for your injuries and scars.
Victims suffering from dog bite injuries due to an attack may be able to recover compensation for several types of damages, including:
- Medical care expenses for treatment related to the attack,
- Wage Loss,
- Pain and suffering damages (physical and mental suffering), and
- Permanent Scarring
