Being injured in an accident can have serious repercussions on one's life. An injury can mean missing time away from school or work that can lead to a loss of income or to one's education suffering due to time away from studies. People may be reluctant to file a personal injury claim in Maryland for fear that it will take too much time to settle and take still more time away from other obligations.
Dogs are popularly known as man's best friend. This is often true, but as with other members of the animal kingdom, one dog's personality can be vastly different from another's. There are laws that promote responsible pet ownership, and failure to abide by them can put the dog and the owner at risk in Maryland. One of the biggest risks is that if a dog is not under the control of its owner it may bite or attack someone. Animal bites can be very dangerous and can result in a personal injury suit.
