According to a study from the Center for Disease Control, approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur in the United States each year, and 800,000 of those bites result in medical care. Tragically, the majority of serious dog bite injuries suffered by children require surgical or scar repair. Animal attacks can even be fatal, in rare cases. Psychological and emotional damage can stay with the victims of dog attacks for a lifetime.
There are specific laws in Michigan to help victims of dog attacks. Every case is unique. Personal injury claims are made on the basis of negligence. The statutes allow compensation for dog bites unless the person bitten has “provoked” the dog. We have been very successful in recovering against dog owners whose dogs have bitten people.
