Dog bite Lawyer
Detroit and all of Michigan, including Wayne County, Oakland County, Macomb County, and Washtenaw County
A dog bite or dog attack can result in serious injuries. With more homeowners purchasing guard dogs such as pit bulls and rottweilers, dog bite and dog attack cases are on the rise. Innocent parties, including children, are suffering dog bites, and victims can suffer from lifelong physical effects, scarring, and emotional trauma.
In Michigan, a dog owner has a responsibility to prevent a dog from causing injury and has strict liability for damages under Michigan statute. There may also be liability for negligence if the person having control of the dog lets it run loose or has knowledge of the dog's dangerous propensities. Posner, Posner and Posner will seek to obtain maximum compensation for you or your child. While money alone may never fully compensate for the injury and losses, it can provide the financial resources needed for reparative surgery, cosmetic surgery, and psychological counseling.
It is vital that you contact an attorney quickly after a dog bite or attack has occurred. A thorough police and animal control investigation needs to be made in order to identify the responsible dog owner and any potential witnesses. The dog may need to be quarantined to insure that it has been properly vaccinated, eliminating the chance for rabies and/or other infection or disease. You need to take photographs to document the injury. These steps need to be taken promptly in order to preserve vital evidence to your claim.
