While dogs are often referred to as “man’s best friend” there have also been cases of dog bites that have resulted in serious injury. If you or a loved one has recently suffered an unprovoked dog attack, you may be eligible for compensation for medical expenses, loss of wages, and other damages.
Since dog attacks are also emotionally traumatic for the victim, this is also taken into account while our experienced attorney builds the legal case. Attorney Jerry Beurkens has over 30 years of experience in handling court cases just like yours.
Since Michigan is a strict liability state, this means that the owner of the dog is responsible for the associated costs of the dog bite. While this is a usually straightforward legal process, sometimes it can be difficult making the dog owner pay the full cost of their dog’s actions. For these scenarios, having an attorney who is experienced with dog bite cases works to your advantage.
If you are in need of a dog bite attorney to represent your legal case, please feel free to contact the Grand Rapids law office of Attorney Jerry Beurkens at (616) 459-5344. He will work hard to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
