4.7 million people are bitten by a dog every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control, and 800,000 are injured seriously enough to need medical attention.
Generally, under the Michigan dog bite statute, an owner of a dog is strictly liable if his or her dog bites a person without provocation while the person is lawfully on public or private property, regardless of whether the dog ever bit anyone in the past. Provocation is the only defense.
