Dog Bite

Whether the victim is a child or an adult, an animal attack can be a scary, life threatening, and ultimately a life altering incident. According to the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) about 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs in the U.S. each year. While these attacks range in severity, 20 percent of these victims require medical attention to treat their injuries.

Dog and other animal attacks should not be taken lightly; these are serious incidents that can lead to medical bills, lost wages, disfigurement, pain and suffering, and emotional and mental anguish. You should not have to suffer physically, mentally, emotionally, or financially due to the negligence of an animal owner.

Common Injuries Caused by Animal Attacks

There are several ways a person may be injured because of an attack. Some common injuries are as follows:

  • Emotional Scarring
  • Physical Scarring
  • Broken Bones
  • Infection
  • Disease
  • Wrongful Death

Who is Liable When an Animal Attack Occurs?

Under Michigan Law, it is the responsibility of the owner to make sure that the animal does not pose a threat of harm or injury to both property and people, especially if the owner knows that their dog has harmful tendencies. Owners must take the appropriate steps to curb the animal (setting up fencing, taking the animal to training classes, etc.) If the owner does not do so, under Michigan law they may be considered a negligent owner.

When you contact Blackstone Law, our first step will be to establish liability. Working from there, we will work with you to build you a strong case, and secure the compensation you deserve for the damages you’ve experienced.
