Michigan Dog Owner Responsibility Attorneys

When a Dog Owner's Negligence Leads to Injury

Dog bites and attacks are tragically common as many pet owners fail to keep proper control over their animals. The resulting injuries can be serious, permanent and often life changing. In the worst cases, a vicious dog attack can result in the tragic loss of a loved one or child.

A Tragedy That Could Have Been Avoided

The reality is that most dog bites and animal attacks resulting in injury could and should have been avoided. Michigan law recognizes that all damage and personal injury caused by a pet is the responsibility of the owner, and under these common law negligence claims, our firm works to hold pet owners and insurance companies to this standard.

  • Wrongful death

  • Disability
  • Scarring
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
