Michigan Dog Bite Law
In general, A victim of a dog bite can hold the owner liable for the injuries caused if the victim was lawfully on the property and did not provoke the dog. Michigan follows a nearly strict liability approach, which means that the owner can be held liable regardless of whether the dog was dangerous or had a propensity to bite. In addition, other laws exist which provide for the liability of pet owners for damage done by their pets.
