Over the years, many states have passed laws with stiff penalties for owners of dogs that cause serious injuries or deaths. In about one-third of states, owners are “strictly liable” for their dogs’ behavior, while in the rest of the country they are liable only if they knew or should have known their dogs had a propensity to bite (known as the “one free bite” principle).
Most of our Michigan dog bite cases involve dogs hopping fences or roaming the streets. We also have cases where a dog lunges and bites a child who is merely passing by. You can collect against homeowners who invite you into their homes, or step-parents who own dogs and do not protect children or anyone else from being bitten. These cases are evaluated on the severity of the injury or scars after the attack. Our clients have been compensated anywhere from $5,000.00 for minor bites to over $475,000.00 for a 4 inch scar on the arm (Click here for photo).
