We Fight Metro Detroit Dog Bites

by / Tuesday, 30 July 2013 / Published in Dog Bites, Goodwin & Scieszka

Our firm specializes in Michigan dog bite claims. Specifically, we represent individuals injured by dogs in Detroit, Royal Oak, West Bloomfield, Southfield, Flint, and the surrounding areas.

If a dog bites you in Michigan, then we want to help you recover for your pain and suffering.

Have you ever taken a look at the Michigan dog bite statute?

287.351 Person bitten by dog; liability of owner:

If a dog bites a person, without provocation while the person is on public property, or lawfully on private property, including the property of the owner of the dog, the owner of the dog shall be liable for any damages suffered by the person bitten, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness.

Basically, if a dog bites you, and you didn’t trespass, nor provoke the dog, then you’re entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Did you know that almost every 40 seconds someone is injured and medically treated in America as a result of an animal’s bite? That’s an astounding statistic.

Cities are even passing additional ordinances to protect their citizens against dog bites. Royal Oak’s dog bite statute requires that any dog over 6 months old be licensed. All dogs in Royal Oak are also required to have their shots up to date. This statute makes it much easier to recover if a dog bites you in Royal Oak. It also significantly reduces the likelihood that you suffer from a bacterial infection.

Have you read our last blog post about the woman whose arm and legs were amputated as a result of a dog bite? Dogs’ mouths are filled with harmful bacteria, and if you’ve been injured from a dog bite, then you should seek immediate medical attention.

It’s important that if a dog bites you, and you’re injured, that you immediately contact our offices. You only pay when we settle or litigate your claim.
