Riding a bicycle is great for the environment and for your health. However, it can be especially dangerous due to a lack of adequate bicycle paths and negligent drivers. In Maine, drivers are required to exercise due care by leaving a distance of at least 3 feet between the vehicle and the bicycle. Unfortunately, many drivers don’t adhere to this law, and bicycle accidents are common.
Determining fault in a bicycle accident can be a complex evaluation as there are many rules of the road for both bicyclists and drivers. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident, call an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately.
While dogs can be wonderful companions, they can also be extremely dangerous. This is not breed specific, and even dogs who are generally friendly can become aggressive for no apparent reason. Studies show that approximately 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 20% of dog bite victims require medical treatment.
In Maine, dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets. However, the specific circumstances surrounding the bite determines whether or not the dog owner will be legally liable to pay for the injured person’s medical treatment and damages.
If you or a loved one has been a victim of a dog bite, seek immediate medical treatment, and call an experienced dog bite attorney.
