Dog Bite Lawyers in Michigan Discuss New Royal Oak Dog Ordinance

Michigan Dog Bite LawyerOur Michigan dog bite lawyers represent victims of dog bites and animal attacks in cases throughout Michigan. We represent a wide range of clients in these cases, including children, postal workers, and utility workers. As a result of such serious injuries resulting from these attacks, the City of Royal Oak recently passed a new ordinance that requires stricter laws on dog bite owners that own a dog that is considered dangerous in nature.

In 2012, Royal Oak reports showed that 32 dog bites and 21 vicious dog incidents were filed. As a result to the high number of dog attacks and injuries, the City Commission would like to regulate stricter laws. Royal Oak defines dangerous animals as an animal that has a history of biting, attacking or damaging property.

The Royal Oak new dog bite ordinance requires the following:

  • $1 million liability insurance policy
  • Post signs
  • Complete an obedience class with dog
  • Keep dog in locked fenced-in area
  • Use muzzle and leash on walks

Even though studies have shown that certain breeds of dogs are more dangerous than others, that does not mean that every dog of that breed is violent. A dog’s disposition depends on two things, their breed and their owner. A dog is more likely to be dangerous if the dog’s owner encourages aggressive behavior.
