Dog Bites

Michigan law provides that if a dog bites a person, without being provoked, while that person is lawfully on the property of another, the owner of the dog is liable for any damages suffered by the person who was bitten. Essentially, Michigan law says that, absent provocation, the dog owner is strictly liable for any damages that their animal caused. These damages oftentimes include pain and suffering from the bite itself, past or future medical procedures, loss of income, fright and shock, and emotional damages caused by the scars left behind after the bite.

"Dog bites can lead to serious damages. If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog or any animal, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to fully evaluate you claim."
