Dog Bites & Michigan Law
As a strict liability state, Michigan will not recognize dog owners who
argue that they were unaware of their dog’s propensity to bite others
or had no history of aggressive behavior.
The victim of a dog bite will need to establish a few things for a successful case:
- Their injuries were the direct result of a bite rather than other behavior
exhibited by the dog
- They did not provoke the dog to attack in any way such as teasing them
- They were in either a public place, or were lawfully in a private place
Our personal injury attorneys can fight to place the blame for the attack
squarely with the dog owner who would be held liable for your losses.
You could be suffering from severe cuts and lacerations which may require
substantial medical attention.
Don’t wait—we are here to help!
You should not have to pay for medical attention if you were not provoking
the dog or trespassing when you were bitten. Trust our vast legal experience
to get you the financial damages you deserve.
