Dog Bite Attorneys in Michigan
Legal Representation for Victims of Serious Animal Attacks
Every day about 1,000 U.S. citizens need emergency care due to a dog bite. Nationwide, as many as one million people require medical treatment for dog bites every year. More than 334,000 victims end up in the emergency room and, sadly, more than half of all the dog bite victims are children each year. Additionally, it is estimated for every dog bite that is reported, three go unreported. Perhaps most surprisingly, national figures estimate that 60% of dog bite attacks happen in the home, either by a family or a friend’s dog.
Michigan has laws that protect people who are bitten or attacked by dogs. If you or your loved one suffered serious injuries after being bitten by a friend, neighbor, or stranger’s dog, Grewal Law PLLC can help you understand your legal options. Our dog bite lawyers in Michigan have more than 100 years of combined experience; we are well-versed in dog bite and personal injury laws and can help you fight for the just compensation you are owed.
Injuries Resulting from Dog Bites
A dog bite can be a traumatic event, resulting in serious injury. Multiple deaths are reported each year as a result of the most vicious attacks.
Often, a dog bite will result in:
- Permanent scarring
- Nerve damage
- Significant risk of infection
- Severe disfigurement
- Serious lacerations
- Broken bones
Additionally, there is often psychological harm that lasts well beyond the physical injury. Many people who suffer a dog attack develop a new fear of dogs, which can be debilitating in severe cases.
