If you’ve been bitten, don’t fight alone. Let Zuppke Law file a Michigan dog bite claim on your behalf. Michigan law imposes strict liability on all dog bite claims. What does that mean? That means that a dog’s owner will be held liable for the injuries that their dog causes, unless one of two narrow exceptions applies.
