Monroe Dog Bite Lawyers Files Lawsuit

The Monroe dog bite attorneys at the Law Offices of Lee Steinberg, P.C. have filed a lawsuit in Monroe County Circuit Court on behalf of a Monroe woman who was attacked by a 90-pound Labrador Retriever. 

The incident, which took place in Montmorency County, caused severe personal injuries to the elderly woman, including a right hip fracture requiring surgery and a torn rotator cuff to the right shoulder. 

The woman was attacked by the dog while staying with friends at their vacation home. The dog, which was owned by another individual, was left unrestrained by the dog owner and allowed to roam the vacation home property unattended. 

Under Michigan law, a dog owner has a duty to make sure his or her dog is properly restrained and does not create an unreasonable hazard to the public at large. The dog owner in this case was well aware elderly people were in the area where the incident occurred, but failed to take any action to protect innocent bystanders, including the dog attack victim. 

The lawsuit seeks over $25,000 in damages for the payment of medical expenses and pain and suffering.  The doctor and hospital bills in this case are extensive.
