How to prove fault in states without dog bite laws

Dog attacks can inflict physical as well as emotional suffering on an individual. In states where dog bite laws do not exist, victims are required to show that the pet owner had knowledge of their pet's aggressive tendency. While most dog attacks may be viewed as accidents, some dogs are naturally predisposed to attack strangers.

What type of injuries are eligible for compensation

Employers are obligated to provide a safe workplace for their employees. The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA) requires all employers to take considerable steps to avoid workplace injuries. In some work situations, avoiding injuries can be difficult. The Occupational Health and Safety Act states that employers have to follow all safety regulations at the workplace. If employees feel that their employer has not made sufficient efforts in ensuring their safety, they may file a complaint.

Who pays compensation for animal bites?

Most pet owners domesticate their animals and rear them as friendly, non-violent beings. Each pet is unique. In some unfortunate cases pets may exhibit a violent behavior, especially around strangers. A person injured due to an animal bite might not want press charges against the pet owner out of concern that it might cause emotional and financial misery. This seen mostly within relatives and close friends. However in the case of serious injuries caused by animal bites, the victim might want legal action or compensation for the damages.

New Jersey one of the most dangerous states for pedestrians

An examination of data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives New Jersey the dubious honor of being in the top 10 states for pedestrian fatalities. The numbers should be a strong reminder to all drivers and pedestrians to take proper precautions.
