Question: We have neighbor with a small hyperactive dog. Whenever I walk by, the dog yips and jumps. It even made it over the fence once. I was able to outrun the dog, but what should I do in the future if the dog catches up and actually bites me?
Proving fault in a slip and fall injury can be difficult. After all, thousands of such injuries occur each year—some inconsequential, and some deadly. Accidents can occur on almost any type of terrain that has become unsafe: Stairs, sidewalks, yards, or even regular floors. Even though accidents can occur so easily, determining whether the property owner is at fault can be very hard.
