Dog attacks are one of the most common liability claims on homeowners’ insurance policies. A dog is the homeowner’s responsibility. Half of all dog bite victims are children. In the State of Michigan the owner of a dog is held strictly liable for dog bites to a human being that were not provoked, provided that the incident happened on the dog owner’s property and the victim was not a trespasser or there to do something unlawful or criminal.
At Turner & Turner we use our expertise and litigate on your behalf, to the fullest extent of the law.
If you or someone you love is bitten by a dog:
Report the incident as soon as possible to the local animal control and/or police department or any other proper legal authority.
We then recommend that you take pictures of the injury, even if you initially do not wish to pursue a claim, because you will have documentation in the event that you later elect to proceed with a claim.
Then, call us at 1-888-8TURNER or complete our online form to receive a free case review.
