Dog Bites on Personal Property

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly 4.7 million individuals suffer from a dog bite annually. Many of these injuries are very painful and can leave lasting physical and psychological scars on the affected individual. Many of the dog bite injuries that occur in the U.S. occur on the dog owner’s property. When this happens, dog bite victims may wonder if there is any legal action that can be taken.

If you or someone you care about has been injured by a pet on someone’s private property, you should contact the Michigan pet bite attorneys of Ravid & Associates, P.C., at 877-PET-BITE immediately to discuss your legal rights and options with an experienced lawyer.

Who is Liable for a Pet Bite?

According to state laws, a dog owner is strictly liable for a dog’s attack on another person if the attack occurred on public property or if the victim was lawfully on private property. Even if the owner did not act irresponsibly or negligently and the dog had no previous history of aggression, the owner is still liable for the damages caused.

Types of people who are lawfully on private property who can experience dog bites include postal service workers, city officials, and invited guests. The only exception when a dog owner is not liable for a dog attack is if the victim was on private property for illegal reasons, such as breaking-and-entering.
