What are the Michigan laws for compensation from a dog bite?

In Michigan, the law holds the person who owns, keeps, or harbors the dog responsible for a dog bite or attack, regardless of prior knowledge of the viciousness of the animal. Therefore, the victim injured from a dog bite has the right to pursue claims for injury damages against the negligent dog owner for the attack, as long as they were not trespassing on private property or provoked the dog at the time of the attack. Entitlement can compensation for injuries suffered, including all hospital expenses, medical treatment, and amount of lost wages incurred from work time missed.
