Michigan Dog Bite FAQs – Dog Owner

Who Is Considered A Dog Owner?

Under Michigan law, a dog owner is specifically defined in MCL 287.261(2)(c), which says an “owner” when applied to the proprietorship of a dog means every person having a right of property in the dog, and every person who keeps or harbors the dog or has it in his care, and every person who permits the dog to remain on or about any premises occupied by him.

There are time limits in making a Michigan dog bite or dog attack claim. This is called the statute of limitations, so it is important to contact a lawyer and protect your legal rights.
