I must have accidentally left the door cracked and he got out while i was working in the yard. I didnt realize he was outside and he ran across the street and attacked my neigbors dog on the leash. It was not on either of our properties. Can they sue? I am willing to pay vet bills.
I was doing at most 35mph, I walked down the block and attempted to find the dog. I couldn’t find the dog so I left because there was no damage to my car and the dog appeared okay. I didn’t report it to anyone because there was no outside and because of the dog being gone. I’m located in PA... Read more »
Hit and run is when you are involved in a collision and there is damage to property or person. Sounds like you have no duty to report it. If you wish you can call up the police for the area where it happened. Make note of when you call. If they say no problem, then just say "thank you."
The person and the unleashed dog want us to pay the full vet bill but since the dog was on our property and was unleashed we don’t think we have to pay the full bill. We told them we are more than willing to pay half but they want us to pay the full 3000$. So what law for Kentucky says that we... Read more »

I'm sorry to hear this but anyone making a claim has to show that the other person was careless. Was the dog visible? Was a light on? (I'm also wondering why the dog wasn't up and alert--normally when they hear feet on a step they are at least wakeful). As to time lost from work, you...Read more »
A lot depends on the facts--did you have a fence? etc. However you can get the value of the dog (i.e. it's market value, not it's value to you ), vet bills. Likely not the cost of a replacement but you can ask.

Depends on the property owner--in this case the school board. The public is allowed on school grounds subject to the rules of the school. For instance, you can't just wander into a school. So it is with the grounds.
No cell service while on vaca. So we didn't get the call from the that my dog was not well. My dog got sick and the kennel took him to vet he was diagnosed with bloat and they put him the sleep because his stomach had already died. They want us to pay the expenses back. I've never seen...

Do you have an expert to testify? If not you are correct that you didn't sign the contract, but then your girlfriend is on the hook--bottom line, you don't need a contract if you ask them to care for the dog and they do, and it's commercial and you know there's a charge. Your...Read more »
Who is handicapped the dog? Whether handicapped or not, it is up to you to make sure Houdini the dog can't get out. He gets out, you get cited. If you can explain why it isn't your fault you can plead not guilty but chances are it'll be on you.
If you know where try to get it back. If not all the roomate owes you is the cost of the dog if it had been for sale the day before--the market value. Technically she destroyed property. You need to look for a roomate that knows boundaries.
The worker has to file an incident report through her company and has the dogs license number. my question is since the dog didn't break skin and leave much of a bruise how does this get handled by authorities? Obviously through her company might be different but if they have to report it to... Read more »
Well, that's fine for your neighbor. But if the dog get's loose it'll be on you. That's why they have dog laws. And your neighbor I assume will not want that responsibility. Also if unleashed, and it gets into it with a postal worker or deliveryperson that is on you.
