Is an owner always responsible for an animal attack?

If an animal bites you, you may be immediately worried not only about your injuries, but the bacteria and viruses that could have been transmitted to you. If a dog has bitten you and it was a family pet, you may already know that it had vaccinations. However, if you didn't know the animal and have to be treated, the owner needs to be found to verify the pet's vaccination record. If this isn't possible, you'll need to be vaccinated against a number of potential diseases, such as rabies.

For which events and motorcycle accidents can you file claims?

When you're in a motorcycle accident, you might have questions about your liability in the situation. There are a few times when the person at fault is generally obvious, like if a car turns left in front of you or a drunk driver was in the wrong lane. In other cases, you may think that if you weren't wearing a helmet or were disobeying a minor law you could be unable to make a claim.

Woman denied compensation for dog bite injuries

When a dog is near a family member, friend or stranger in New Hampshire, it may be difficult to think of such a common and normally friendly animal as a danger. However, animal bites can lead to serious injuries that take months or years to heal, if they do at all. The person who owns the dog that bites another person is usually held liable for the damage, although this case sets an interesting precedent.
