Can I sue if a dog ran through an “invisible fence” and bit me?

Yes, you may be able to sue if a dog ran through an “invisible fence” and bit you. The dog bite statute in Michigan, M Civ JI 80.01 states that “the owner of a dog that bites a person without provocation while that person is [on public property / lawfully on private property] is liable for any damages suffered by the person bitten, regardless of the previous viciousness of the dog or whether the owner knew of that viciousness.”

Therefore, if you are attacked by a dog that ran through an invisible fence and bites you, the dog owner is liable and you do have the legal right to file a Michigan dog bite injury claim.  There are strict deadlines for following these types of claims, so it is important that victims knows the statute of limitation for filing a dog bite lawsuit.
