MICHIGAN LAW FOR DOGS ON LEASHES
A typical dog attack consists of a person being chased by a dog and suffering severe injuries while running away and trying to avoid the attack. Injuries can be dangerous and include nerve injuries, fractured bones, and other injuries caused by falls.
Some may be serious and will require long hospitalizations or ongoing physical therapy. When this happens, the victim is eligible under Michigan law to pursue a dog bite case against the dog owner.
Michigan law is written so that the person who owns, keeps, or harbors the dog responsible for a dog attack, regardless of prior knowledge (called, “strict liability” laws) of the fierceness of the animal. Also, the negligence law is used to hold the owner responsible for the attack. This means that the dog owner is liable if the injury occurred because the dog owner was unreasonably inconsiderate in regulating the dog.
Michigan has a leash law that requires all dogs to be on a leash, which means the owner is reasonable to enforce this law by keeping their animal securely on a leash and under control when in public areas.
