Have you been bitten by a dog in Michigan? Are you wondering whether or not you should sue the owner?
Often times, injured dog bite victims are reluctant to sue a dog’s owner. These people don’t want to be considered “litigious” or “unreasonable”. The irony is that these people have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. As an attorney who is well practiced in this area of the law, I find it troubling that someone would want sleep on their rights after incurring hospital bills, receiving excruciating rabies shots, and being forced to live a life with a now permanent disfigurement.
Most Michiganders are unaware that the law favors dog bite victims. To prevail in a Michigan dog bite claim, all you have to prove is that you didn’t provoke the dog that bit you, and that you were lawfully in the place where you were bitten. Why is it so easy to win a dog bite claim? Because the Michigan legislature wants to protect the general public from dog bites.
Dog bites are dangerous. It was only a few months ago that a Craig Systsma was killed when 2 cane corsos mauled him to death while he was on his evening run. Children who are attacked often suffer from life-long phobias and psychological problems as a result of dog bites.
