|Don't let fido||turn your ride - or the next person's||into a tragedy.|
|Anytime - and everytime - you encounter a dog that is loose and in the roadway, please call the local sheriff's office/animal control officer to report the animal and its location.
Any size dog can cause a serious accident and injuries (to pedestrians, horse riders, motorcyclists, and drivers as well as to cyclists).
Dog owners are responsible under state, county and city laws for keeping their dogs properly restrained and out of public roadways. Owners may be sued for any damages resulting from negligence.

|Bike Accident Advice - Kass & Moses, PC||1-844-Bicycle||"We limit our practice to only representing injured Motorcycle and Bicycle riders. There are only a handful of law firms in the country that can match the knowledge and experience we bring to our clients.... We know the bias and disdain many automobile drivers have against bike and motorcycle riders. Many car drivers do not feel they should have to share the road with us. In fact insurance companies, as well as police officers, often unjustly skew a police report in favor of the car or truck. Our experience in over-coming these inaccuracies and bias makes us uniquely qualified to represent injured bicycle and motorcycle accident victims."||All 50|
