In Michigan, dog bite claims are known as strict liability causes of action. Under Michigan's dog bite statute, the injured plaintiff only needs to prove they suffered a dog bite, the dog bite was without provocation, the defendant owned the dog and that the plaintiff was lawfully at the location where the dog bite occurred.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year in the US. Almost one in five people require medical attention for their dog-bite-related injuries. Not surprisingly, half of those individuals who require medical attention are children under the age of 12. Dog attacks can leave gruesome personal injuries on individuals, leaving lasting physical and emotional scars to those who have been attacked. Children tend to be especially susceptible to dog bites on their face, often with devastating results.
