Dog Bite Liability in Saginaw County

The laws in Michigan state that pet owners are strictly liable when animal-related injuries occur. That means there is no need to prove negligence. A pet owner should have control of their pet at all times. If the animal is a stray or wild animal, there is not a pet owner to hold liable.

Steps to Take After a Dog Bite in Saginaw County

When a dog bite occurs, the first thing that should be done is to remove the threat of further injury by getting away from the animal. If it is an emergency situation, you should also call 911. Here are the steps to take next.

  1. Seek medical treatment.
  2. Obtain the owner's information.
  3. Contact the Saginaw County Animal Control office to file a report.
