Top-Rated Dog Bite Lawyers
Our Midland dog bite lawyers represent people who are bitten, knocked down, or attacked by a dog. These cases often result in large settlement payout amounts, especially when the victim is a child.
The Michigan dog bite statute holds the owner or keeper of the dog strictly liable to the victim for the injuries resulting from the bite. A dog owner is also liable for the failure to properly leash or restrain the dog on both public and private property.
Midland has an ordinance (Sec. 3-17) that makes it unlawful to allow any dog to run at large or stray beyond the property of the owner, unless the under reasonable control.
A person bitten by someone’s dog on public or private property can also sue for the attack under this ordinance.
Call our Midland dog bite attorneys now to get a great settlement.

In Midland and throughout Michigan, most injury and accident cases have a three-year deadline filing a lawsuit. This is known as the statute of limitations. It applies to all case types, including car accidents, defective properties, dog bites, and other negligence cases.
The time deadline for medical malpractice and nursing home neglect lawsuits is shorter. In those cases, there is a two-year time limit to file your lawsuit.

Midland Legal Resources
Buckfire & Buckfire is an exceptional law firm. I was really impressed with the way they handled my motorcycle accident case. I highly recommend this law firm to anyone who has been injured in a Michigan motorcycle accident.
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.
