Bay County Dog Bite LawyerOur dog bite lawyers can help you if you were injured in an Bay County dog bite attack. These attacks often result in serious injuries, including lacerations, puncture wounds, nerve damage, and broken bones.  Dog bite victims incur hospital and medical expenses for their treatment and often need plastic surgery for scars and disfigurements caused by a bite.

We have obtained significant settlements and verdicts for our clients injured in these dog bite attacks. Compensation is paid for pain and suffering, disfigurement, medical expenses, and lost wages. We can help you or someone you care about win the best settlement for your case.

Michigan Dog Bite Laws

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

50.601  Dogs found running at large; impoundment.

Sec. 1. All dogs found running at large and not under the control of their owners may be seized by the Animal Control Officer or any peace officer, impounded and thereafter be sold or disposed of in accordance with Article III of this Ordinance.

(Amended: Ord. of 10-14-92)

50.602  Citation of owners of dogs found running at large.

Sec. 2. If the Animal Control Officer or other peace officer comes upon a non-vicious or non-dangerous dog running at large whose ownership is known and the owner is available, said officer shall not seize and impound such animal, but rather may cite the owner of such animal to appear in court to answer charges of violation of this Ordinance.

(Amended: Ord. of 10-14-92)
