What Are My Legal Rights After a Dog Bite in Bay City?

Dog bite victims have legal rights.

Our Bay City dog bite lawyers represent victims of canine attacks. These cases can result in large settlement payout amounts.

The Michigan dog bite statute holds the owner or keeper of the dog strictly liable to the victim for the injuries resulting from the bite. This means there is automatic liability for the attack.

In addition, the dog owner is liable for the failure to properly leash or retrain the dog on both public and private property. This also usually means that liability is automatic in most cases.

Bay City has an ordinance (Sec. 18-22)  that makes it unlawful to allow any dog to run at large. A person bit by another’s dog while on public or private property can also sue for the attack under this ordinance.

If you were bitten or attacked by a dog, we can help you.

Call our top-rated dog bite attorneys now to get a great settlement.
