Dogs Bites Can Cause Serious Injuries -- We Pursue Justice

Dogs can be a source of companionship, love and joy. However, dogs can also become predatory and unpredictable. When this happens, they can inflict serious injury resulting in lifetime consequences, including nerve damage and disfigurement, to their victims. Even dogs that are generally well-behaved can bite people unexpectedly.

If you've been bitten by a dog or experienced any kind of animal attack, the first things you should do are seek medical attention, document your injuries with photos and contact a lawyer.

We Understand Your Concerns

An injury can create many concerns. We know this and have helped people navigate the system to reach or obtain a recovery that is adequate and compensates all aspects of the injury recognized by the law. Those aspects can include:

  • Medical and surgical expenses
  • Cosmetic surgery
  • Work loss benefits
  • Permanent scarring
  • Cosmetic surgery
  • Pain and suffering from the dog attack
  • Emotional injuries and fear for well-being

Some of these results are evident and known upfront, while some things such as pain and suffering may be ongoing. We will consider all consequences of your injury when negotiating with the insurance company.

What If I Know The Dog Owner?

Sometimes people don't want to pursue a claim because the dog that bit them belonged to their best friend or an acquaintance. We've seen this scenario many times and know people often want to preserve their relationships with the dog owners. Most responsible dog owners have insurance that will pay for damages associated with a dog attack and will do the right thing.

We will do the right thing, too. We will make sure your pain and injury aren't minimized. In many instances, friendships and relationships can also be preserved while the case goes forward.

Additionally, in Michigan, the legislature has passed laws to hold dog owners responsible for injuries inflicted by their dogs. These laws apply in all cases, except when the dog is provoked or where the injured party is trespassing on the dog owner's premises.
