Yes, if a dog ran out of a house and bit you, you do have the legal rights to sue and file a dog bite lawsuit. The claim would be filed against the dog owner for the injuries and harm suffered in the attack. In fact, under Michigan law we have a dog bite statute, M Civ JI 80.01, that states that the owner of a dog that bites a person without provocation while that person is on public property and or private property is liable for any damages suffered by the victim. Therefore, a victim does have the legal right to sue when a situation such as a dog running out of a house and biting an individual in Michigan arises.
