Our Michigan dog bite lawyers represent victims of dog bite injuries and attacks, as well as their families, in cases throughout the State of Michigan. We represent a wide range of clients in these cases, including children, postal workers, and utility workers. There are specific Michigan dog bite laws that apply to these cases. Owners and keepers of dogs in this state are strictly liable for dog bites and attacks, which means the victim does not have to prove that the owner was negligent, only that he or she was bitten or attacked.
Our Michigan dog bite lawyers get compensation for victims who suffer injuries and to their families who have lost a loved one due to a dog attack. We get the maximum settlements for our clients in cases throughout the entire State of Michigan. Through our committed advocacy, we help you win the highest settlement for your dog bite case.
In addition to physical injuries, a dog bite victim often suffers from psychological damages as well. These psychological damages can include, but are not limited
to, nightmares, post-traumatic stress syndrome, humiliation and embarrassment. There are also hospital bills, medical bills, and prescription expenses. Many
victims also have a claim for lost income.
Victims and their families can file a lawsuit against the dog owner for the injuries suffered. A lawsuit for a Michigan dog bite must be filed with the court, unless the insurance company settles the claim sooner. Once the lawsuit is filed, a claim for damages and losses is made and proof of the dog bite attack injury is documented through medical records, medical bills, photographs, and any witnesses that were at the scene of the attack. In fact, our lawyers recommend victims to take photos and descriptions of the place where the attack occurred to help assist your case and get the best possible dog bite settlement.
Other useful evidence a victim should collect at the time of the attack include the names of the dog and dog owner, the dog owner’s address, addresses and names of people who witnessed the attack, and medical evaluation of the wound by the treating physician. In situations in which a victim dies due to the injuries suffered in the dog attack, the family can file a wrongful death claim for the loss of their loved one.

Robert Lantzy (Bob) represented my 4 year old daughter after she got bit in the face by a friend’s dog. It was very difficult for me to pursue at first, but as soon as I contacted him the day after it happened he took the reins and I didn’t have to worry about anything or anyone else except for my daughter. He took care of everything, he was very compassionate, and pleasant to work with. Bob got my daughter a substantial settlement that she deserved. I trusted him from the very beginning and it paid off. If your child gets bit by a dog, don’t feel bad, you have to look out for your kid’s best interest and Bob will do just that for you, like it’s his own child.
