WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I AM ATTACKED BY AN ANIMAL
If you are attacked by an animal, you should immediately contact the police to document the attack and obtain the name and contact information of the owner of the animal. You should also contact animal control in the county you were attacked. They will get all the information about the dog and will determine if the animal is current on rabies shots.
After reporting the dog attack, you should seek medical treatment at an urgent care facility. They can assess the level of care needed. Make sure to tell them what happened and your level of pain. This is needed for appropriate care.
Make sure to document your animal attack. Take pictures as soon as possible. Continue to takes pictures as your injury heals. Keep all of your medical records and bills. Keep a log with dates of treatment and what happened. If necessary, make an appointment with a cosmetic surgeon to determine the cost of reconstructive surgery.
ANIMAL ATTACK LIABILITY
Michigan has strict liability for animal attacks. The only defense is provocation of the animal. Typically, homeowner’s insurance pays animal attack claims for the owners of the animal. The owner’s liability typically does not go beyond the insurance limits. If the owner of the animal is a relative or a friend, you can limit the claim to the insurance policy only so that they will have no out of pocket expenses.
