When a dog bites you, it can cause severe injury or even death. If a dog has recently bitten you or a family member, seek medical attention. Hospital stays and medical bills are expensive, and you might need to miss work as a result of the altercation.
An experienced personal injury attorney at Cochran, Kroll and Associates, P.C., can help navigate the complicated processes of confirming liability and getting paid for your injury and lost wages.
In Lansing, Michigan, dog owners are always responsible for their animals. Whether it’s on the street, at the park, or in their backyards, dog owners must have their animal under verbal or physical control at all times.
If you’ve been bitten and need medical attention, the dog owner could be held strictly liable for any medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages you suffer as a result of the attack.
You must not have provoked the dog to aggression, and the dog must have been legally on their owner’s property or in a public place. The bite must be severe enough that you sought medical attention as a direct result of the bite.
Experienced dog bite attorneys know what kind of proof to collect to build a strong case against a negligent dog owner in a Lansing dog bite case. To create a leak-proof case, we will compile any documentation that is related to vaccination records (in case of rabies), history of aggressive behaviors or attacks, eyewitness accounts, and proof of ownership.
Proving liability in an animal attack can be tricky. Still, our dog bite lawyers have a lot of experience winning punitive damages for our clients to make up for the loss of health and lost wages. There are different types of claims in Michigan dog bite cases.
Proving liability when you’re a dog bite victim can be complicated, but the experts at Cochran, Kroll, and Associates, P.C., can help you navigate the legal issues if you’ve been bitten by a dog.
