Property Liability Claims

Commercial and residential property owners have a responsibility to keep their property safe. Failing to appropriately restrain a dangerous dog or other animal, failing to provide adequate lighting or security, or failing to keep walkways free from debris, snow or ice, may be considered negligent behavior. When this homeowner negligence or business owner negligence results in a serious accident, the homeowner or business can be held liable for any injuries. This is known as premises liability.

THE WOLF LAW FIRM handles both simple and complex property accident claims throughout Michigan. Examples of some of the property and liability claims our attorneys handle include:

  • Dog bites, dog attacks, and other animal attacks
  • Slip and fall/trip and fall
  • Food poisoning
  • Assault, rape, or other attacks caused by inadequate security
  • Hotel or building fires and/or gas explosions
  • Other property and premises liability insurance claims

Michigan Dog Bites — If you were bitten by a dog or your child was attacked by a dog, it may not be necessary to demonstrate negligence. Michigan law holds dog owners strictly liable for injuries to victims who had a right to be there (i.e., people who were not trespassing), and who did not provoke the animal.

Our firm's founding lawyer, Allen Wolf, has a strong background in insurance defense litigation, and has handled countless complex property liability claims on behalf of hotels, restaurants, and other property owners. Our law firm uses this experience to prepare effective personal injury cases on behalf of our injured clients.
