The U.S. Centers for Disease Control found that more than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year in the United States. If the negligence of a dog owner induced your injuries, you may be qualified to collect a settlement or receive reimbursement for damages by bringing a case to court.
However, navigating this legal process alone is likely to leave you with more questions than answers. Because of this, we hope our FAQs can help to provide clarity for the many individuals who suffer from animal attacks in Michigan.
Some frequently asked questions we receive from dog bite clients include:
- What is the first thing I should do after being bitten by a dog?
- Does Michigan follow the “one-bite rule”?
- What damages are recoverable in a case?
- How soon do I need to bring a case after an animal attack?
- How long will it take to resolve my dog bite claim?
- What information should I collect for a case?
- How do I find the right lawyer for my case?
Our FAQs can help to explain these and other questions. They can also help to clarify your options and rights, and help to get you started on what steps to take for a claim. Furthermore, working with an experienced attorney can give you a significant advantage in your case, from collecting evidence and estimating damages, to securing you a settlement.
