Dog Owners’ Legal Duties In Maryland
Pet owners must take reasonable steps to prevent animal attacks. Besides training their dogs and other animals, this can include putting up sturdy fencing in their yards, keeping the dogs on leashes while out of the house and other practical ways of minimizing the chances of a dog attack. Owners who do not take this duty seriously may expose their neighbors to painful bite injuries that can cause scarring and, in some cases, long-lasting damages. Children are especially vulnerable to pet attacks.
As your attorney, Ms. Whitlock will investigate your dog attack to determine who is responsible. She will file suit and give you the advantage against the insurance companies. You will receive the compensation you need in a timely manner, so your family will not be burdened with debt because of someone else’s negligence.
