Claims against pet owners

Dog owners have a responsibility to regulate their dog's behavior. Even if a dog has not shown vicious tendencies in the past, the owner can be held accountable. If the dog has a been known to bite or assault a non-trespasser, it may be considered vicious. Dog owners are liable for chaining or fencing in vicious dogs. If a dog that is regarded as vicious has attacked or bitten you, we can help you pursue compensation for your grievances. If the dog has no past history of attacking a person, you may still be able to file a claim against the dog owner. We can clarify your specific legal routes after you have been injured due to homeowner negligence.

Hitting cattle or livestock on the road

Just as pet owners are responsible for controlling their pet's conduct, farmers are accountable for making sure their cattle (or other livestock) are suitably fenced in. Cows, pigs, horses, and other livestock may escape and wander onto the roadway, putting drivers at risk for suffering very severe accidents. If you have been injured in a crash with a farm animal, we can help you investigate your options for seeking compensation.

Testimonials

When my medical bills were more costly than the defendant's insurance coverage, I had all but given up on receiving any settlement on my car wreck case. I was amazed when Mr. Skaug was able to make arrangements that allowed me to come out with a nice settlement. Thank you so much!
