by Bret Schnitzer

There is strict liability against the dog owner if you are bitten or attacked and bitten by a dog. What this means is that the owner does not get to argue that they “did not have a dog that had bitten anyone before” as a defense to the dog bite case. The only defense available to the dog owner to a person lawfully on the premisses is “provocation”.The “provocation defense” means that the person who was bitten “provoked” the dog. Below is that dog bite statute in Michigan. Schnitzerlaw has recovered millions of dollars for dog bite and dog bite attack cases.

Another Published Opinion For Schnitzerlaw

The Michigan Trial Reporter and Schnitzerlaw

by Bret Schnitzer

The Michigan Trial Reporter Volume 26 issue 3, has published another front page article about an auto accident case settled by Schnitzerlaw. The case is interesting for a number of reasons. The facts are that the Plaintiff was actually ticketed by the police and determined to be wholly at fault for the accident by the investigating officer. Plaintiff was given both the hazardous action number and a ticket by the police for an improper lane change. Plaintiff hired her counsel Bret A. Schnitzer almost three years after the accident, after being unable to find any other attorney willing to help her. Through an exhaustive investigation Plaintiffs counsel was able to determine that it was the defendant truck driver not the plaintiff who caused the accident. After extensive cross examination of the truck driver and photographic evidence it was established that the police investigation was wholly wrong and that the truck driver not the Plaintiff caused this accident. Plaintiff recovered $170,000.00 due to the tenacity of the Plaintiff and her attorneys at Schnitzerlaw.
