My 6yr old daughter is still having nightmares about it and there was very little compassion. Do we have a case? This happened in Dearborn, Michigan
We have a pitbull and luckily they haven't been outside together, but we have watched our neighbor's dog jump into our fenced-in yard multiple times. What can we do (legally) other than ask the neighbor to watch their dogs?
As the owner of pit bull, you are a vulnerable target for a lawsuit if something bad happens. You should consider whether the fence should be taller. You might also advise the neighbor of your concern. Perhaps the neighbor might want to install a taller fence. Check with your homeowner...Read more »

First you can't force a doctor to treat you. Suggest you look for a clinic and see if there is a health advisor who can tell you about the resources you have.
