Dog Owner Responsibilities

Michigan Dog Bite Lawyer

In Michigan, dog owners are held strictly liable if their dog attacks another person without provocation. This applies only to incidents that occur on public property or while the victim is lawfully on the dog owner's property. Cases involving trespassing or a dog bite victim on another's property for the purpose of committing a crime would limit or cancel out entirely the dog owner's responsibility in the event of an attack.

A Michigan personal injury attorney at Freedman Law Group can help you if you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog. Since 1994, our firm has been providing superior legal counsel and personalized, professional service to each and every one of our clients. With our understanding of dog bite law and a dog owner's responsibility in the event of an attack, we are able to effectively represent our clients' interests and work to recover the financial compensation they need.

Financial Responsibility of a Dog Owner

Proving the liability of the dog owner in a dog bite claim or lawsuit is essential. The victim's lawyer will need to prove that the owner of the dog was legally responsible in order to recover maximum financial compensation. The defense that most dog owners would turn to, as Michigan is a strict liability dog bite law state, is that the victim did not have permission to be on the owner's property or that the victim provoked the dog in some way. It can be difficult to prove your side of the story. Letting an experienced attorney handle this for you will go a long way in ensuring that you are able to recover monetary damages for all you have suffered. Contact a Michigan dog bite lawyer from our office as soon as possible to learn how we could help you.
