Dog Bite Injuries
Aggressive Representation After A Dog Attack
Michigan dog bite law states that if a dog isn’t provoked and bites an individual, then the dog owner can be held legally responsible for any damages the attack victim suffers. While these points may seem simple enough, successfully resolving dog bite claims in Michigan can be quite complex.
At Lipton Law, our dedicated personal injury attorneys have the legal insight you need to get results. Using over 100 years of combined experience, we know how to untangle the complexities of a dog bite case. We have a well-earned reputation for securing full and just compensation for individuals seriously injured in dog attacks.
Meeting the Burden of Proof
Under Michigan law, a person who files a dog bite claim needs to prove that:
- The victim was injured by or suffered damage from a dog bite.
- The victim was on public property or lawfully on private property.
- The victim was bitten without provocation.
- The defendant was the owner of the dog.
Michigan dog bite claims are intricate in that “provocation” can be regarded as any intentional or unintentional action.
The Aftermath of a Dog Attack
Dog attacks are traumatic not only for children but for adults as well. Dog bite injuries can be extremely painful, causing deep wounds that may require multiple surgeries and lead to severe scarring or disfigurement. Recovering from a dog attack can take months, if not years, depending on the severity of the attack. Our lawyers take these and other factors into consideration when filing a claim.
