Dog Bite Laws

Many cities and counties have ordinances regarding pit bulls and the responsibilities of dog owners. An owner or keeper of a dog who violates these ordinances can be held liable for damages in a civil lawsuit to a dog bite victim that was attacked by a pit bull. The ordinances can be used to prove a case in addition to other Michigan dog bite laws.

Buena Vista Pit Bull Laws

  • Post signs
  • Carry $50,000 in liability insurance
  • Have a kennel

Dog Bite Lawsuits For Pit Bull Attacks

Michigan law holds the person who owns, keeps, or harbors the dog responsible for a dog bite or attack, regardless of prior knowledge (called, “strict liability” laws) of the viciousness 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 careless in controlling the dog. The only defense to the dog owner in these cases is if the victim provoked the attack or was a trespasser on the property.

In Buena Vista dog bite owners may face jail time and possible fines if they own a vicious animal that injured a dog bite victim.
