Michigan dog bite settlements are usually paid by the homeowners insurance company for the owner of the dog. Almost all homeowners insurance policies cover dog bites and attacks in Michigan. The company will defend the dog owner in a lawsuit, investigate the case, and then determine whether to pay a settlement to the victim. Many of these cases result in substantial settlements and jury verdicts.
