Corte De Apelaciones De Maryland Encuentra Los Perros De Raza Pit Bull Son Inherentemente Peligrosos

Corte de Apelaciones de Maryland Encuentra los perros de raza Pit Bull son inherentemente peligrosos

Soy amante de los perros. Tengo un Beagle en casa que no puedo imaginar mi vida sin ella. Vamos a dar largos paseos cada mañana y cada tarde y ella realmente es mi mejor amiga. Pero sé que los Beagle son propensos a seguir sus narices incluso hasta meterse en medio del tráfico, tras la pista de algo olor excitante. Y por eso nunca la paseo sin una correa. La mantengo amarada su propia protección y para la protección de los demás.

Yo también soy un abogado de Mordidas de Perros. Estos dos rasgos son a veces difíciles de conciliar. Siempre es triste tener que demandar a un propietario de un perro cuyo perro tuvo que ser sacrificado, porque él o ella no pudo entrenar adecuadamente o controlar al perro, y como resultado alguien más salió herido de gravedad.

En pocas palabras, siempre es triste en mi línea de trabajo de ver a alguien que salga lastimado por causa de un perro o un ataque de animal. Y es igualmente triste ver a los animales innecesariamente sacrificados cuando el incidente podía ser evitado.

Yo realmente no creo que los perros tengan la culpa cuando muerden a la gente. De hecho, yo diría, en casi todos los casos, es la culpa del dueño particular, por no correctamente entrenar al perro, o restringirlo, o de otra manera cumplir con la ley.  Sin embargo, estos accidentes seguirán ocurriendo porque la gente no hace lo que debería-y la ley de Maryland ha tomado nota.

Por ejemplo, el Tribunal Alto de Maryland este año fallo en contra de los Pit-bull y mezclas de Pit-bulls (y sus dueños) en lo que parece ser una decisión histórica única. En el caso de Tracey V Solesky, el tribunal Supremo sostuvo que esencialmente todos los Pit-bull y o raza mezclados con Pit-bulls hoy son inherentemente peligrosas (en sí mismas) En otras palabras, se considera peligroso por naturaleza y que los propietarios de estos animales, por lo tanto tienen la responsabilidad objetiva por cualquier daño que causan los Pit-bulls.  Esto es cierto incluso si el propietario no tenía idea de que el perro podía ser peligroso, o si el perro nunca antes ha exhibido indicios de ser peligroso, agresivo o se muestra ninguna indicación de lo contrario podía cuásar daño. La declaración simplemente requiere que el dueño del animal sabe que el perro es un perro Pit-bull o una Mezcla de Pit para que aplique la ley

Esta decisión ha afectado mucho a la ley de responsabilidad de perros en Maryland.  La ley de la mordida de perro en Maryland solía ser (generalmente) que el propietario solo puede ser responsable por los actos de su perro domesticado, si sabía o debía haber sabido que el perro tenía una tendencia peligrosa. Bajo la ley anterior, el dueño de un perro no podría ser responsable por el ataque de su perro Pit-bull si no tuviera indicios de que era probable que resultara, o si el perro le había dado al propietario cualquier razón para creer que podía atacar en alguna momento.

En dado caso, yo creo que todo dueño de perro debe tomar responsabilidad de las acciones de sus animales.  No es justo para todos los demás, y en especial no es justo para el animal, de no proveerle las correas necesarias, y las medidas de protección necesarias para que no vaya dañar a otros o de ser daño el mismo. Para más información sobre esta este punto de interés de esta decisión usted puede leer el caso de Tracey Vs Solesky, 2012 WL 1432263 (Md. Ct. App. Apr. 26, 2012).

I highly recommend Mr. Katz and his staff. They were friendly, compassionate and really showed they had their clients best interest at heart. There was never a time you called them they didn't respond or returned your calls and answer your questions.They took the worry, and stress and turn it into reassurance. They were diligent and just down right professional. My wife and I really thank God for allowing us to cross paths on a professional business experience. Ms. Rebecca Slatery is the most courteous, compassionate soul. We wish you all peace, love and blessings. Thank you for your service.

I was referred to Gordon & feindblatt in 2014 when my family was in an accident, Mr. Katz personally consulted with me by phone and he was very polite and professional, Mr. Carpuso, one of the litigation attorneys even came out to our home and went over our case with us, he made sure all of our needs was addressed and before he left our home that day I felt like we were old friends. that case was settled and I was very pleased, I have used this law firm twice since then and the results are always the same, I have nothing but great experiences with Gordon & Feindblatt the staff are courteous and professional and they get the job done but the one in particular that really stood out for me is Rebecca Slattery, she is truly a gem, she is so compassionate, she walked me through the entire process, she even checked up on me from time to time just to see how I was feeling and I really appreciated her kindness. I will use this law firm again and again for any future legal issue that may arise and I would highly recommend Gordon & Fiendblatt to friends, family and co-workers.

The lawyer who was initially handling my case parted ways with the company and I was assigned a new lawyer. This new lawyer was amazing! Christina Franetovich made me feel secure by double checking all the facts and notes in my case so that I was not worried during this transition. I was on disability from an a different accident while she was finalizing my case, and I had called and hounded her about the time frame of my settlement very frequently to the point that I felt guilty for calling so much. Christina was very sympathetic to my situation and assured me that she would do everything in her power to make sure the situation would be resolved quickly. She actually finalized my case before the time frame she had given me, was always very courteous and knowledgable on the phone, and I feel extremely lucky that she ended up handling my case because the previous lawyer was not as amazing with customer service as Christina. She also has a way of making you feel comfortable and builds incredible rapport quickly. I am going to highly recommend her to my friends and family. Thank you Christina!!!

On Feb 23, 2017 I was in a bad accident on the JFX. I had been rear end by another driver. Almost immediately I felt pressured by the other drivers insurance. Everything from wanting a recorded statement; to failing to acknowledge responsibility. No one would answer my questions, nor would anyone take responsibility. I was frustrated and overwhelmed with everyone from the towing company, to the repair shop, to the insurance company nightmare I just entered. I reached out to Attorney Robert Katz and I was assured they were here to help. He provided with some much needed information, and told me not to worry, Sarah his Paralegal would be in touch to help get things moving. Sarah reached out as expected and explained their process and walked me through what my expectations would be. She as well assured me they were here to help me navigate the obstacles. What Sarah really did was so much more than help. She took the stress and burden off my shoulders and assumed ownership for handling everything on my behalf. I knew what to expect, and I received regular updates throughout the entire process. Honestly, I received so much more than I anticipated. Some of the most frustrating items to chase after are medical records and hospital charges. While I was trying to recall events and timelines, she had already obtained my records and information. She made this process so painless. I truly cannot say enough about the exceptional service she provided. Many thanks for all your help. Sincerely, Richard Hose

My husband and I were in a car accident in August 2017. We contacted Bob Katz team for legal representation in our case. Kristen A. Turner was our paralegal and she was excellent. It took 9 months for us to receive our settlement and Kristen kept us updated throughout this entire process. She was very kind and patient as I happened to have several questions. She always answered my questions promptly and thoroughly. I would highly recommend this firm and Kristen if you are in need of legal assistance.
