A recent dog attack that took place in Canton, Michigan has prompted Thomas Stroble to remind people to talk to a dog bite attorney about their legal options.

Online PR News – 20-November-2015 – BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. – A recent dog attack that took place in Canton, Michigan has prompted Thomas Stroble, founding attorney of Michigan Injury Lawyers, to remind people who sustain dog bite injuries to talk to a dog bite attorney in Michigan about their legal options.

According to a report published at Patch.com, a man was injured in a dog attack that took place in Canton, Michigan on November 1st. The man was attempting to separate four dogs that had begun fighting with one another after playing with a toy. While two men were trying to break the fight up, one of them was bitten on the leg and hand by a hound mix that was involved in the entanglement.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that there are approximately 4.5 million dog bites in the United States each year, and one out of every five becomes infected. According to attorney Thomas Stroble, serious dog bites can often result in significant economic and noneconomic losses, including those related to medical expenses, physical and emotional pain and suffering, lost income, and loss of enjoyment of life. In many instances, Michigan law allows people who are hurt by dogs to recover for these losses by filing a personal injury claim. Importantly, unlike other state laws regarding dog bites, Michigan’s dog bite statute does not require the owner to have knowledge that their dog was dangerous or had bitten someone before in order for victims to recover.
