Animals In The Road

If you have had the unfortunate experience hitting an animal in the road you have probably been left wondering if there was any source of financial recovery to help with not only car damage but also with medical bills and injury compensation. If you struck a dear (as in the actual diagram submitted to police I have attached) bear, moose or nay other wild animal you will be limited to your own auto coverage for car damage and your no-fault medical coverage as well as any health insurance you may have at the time. However if you collided with a horse, cow, dog or other domesticated animal you can have a path to financial compensation if the owner can be identified as there is a duty to properly confine such animals with properly maintained gates and fences, If you have been injured in an accident involving a domesticated animal through no fault of your own contact my office to discuss your rights.
