A Grand Rapids dog bite attorney from Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., can help you negotiate the complex Michigan laws regarding dog bite cases. We will provide you with skilled and experienced representation to successfully win your case.
Michigan is one of a handful of states which has “strict liability” laws regarding dog bite attacks. “Strict Liability” means that the owner of the dog is fully responsible for the actions of their animal. Furthermore, the dog owner cannot claim to be ignorant of the dog’s aggressive behavior even if the animal has never displayed dangerous tendencies previously.
For a dog bite victim to be eligible to make a personal injury claim, the incident must meet the following criteria according to Michigan dog bite statute MCLA 287.351:
Personal injury lawsuits including those pertaining to dog bite injuries must be filed within the three-year statute of limitations. If the suit is not filed in time, your case may be rejected by the court and you will be unable to get compensation. To successfully file your suit and win your case, hire a dog bite lawyer from Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C.
