Before you ride

Before you strap on your new leather chaps and hit the road, then you should sit and thoroughly read your owner’s manual. Check your gas, tire, and oil levels. Ensure that you’ve complied with all the necessary state requirements and have the requisite license to ride. Unless you understand bike mechanics, then let a licensed professional work on your bike. Your signals, horn, and lights should all function properly. Although simple, these reminders significantly reduce the likelihood of an injury.

Did you know that someone in America seeks medical attention for an animal related injury every minute? By assessing a dog’s body language, then you can significantly reduce the likelihood of a dog bite.

Did you know that you have the right to sue someone if their dog bites you? That’s right, if someone’s pet beast attacks you and you are injured, you can sue them for money. Millions of dollars have been won off these lawsuits, and it is more serious than you may think. If a dog is not trained properly, it could inflict serious and sometimes fatal injuries. Pitbulls are a perfect example of a dangerous animal. The breed was reported to have been responsible for 15 of the 16 fatal dog attacks last year. In the past seven years, pitbulls were responsible for 151 deaths. If you have been seriously injured by a dog attack, do not hesitate to contact a lawyer because you deserve compensation.
