Fatal Dog Bite Raises Questions Regarding Adoption Agencies

by Staff Blogger | November 18th, 2015

Many organizations work to find stray dogs forever homes, but a recent incident in which a Tennessee man was killed by a dog he had just adopted raises questions regarding liability.

The Nashville dog bite lawyers at Ponce Law explain the 57-year-old victim adopted a dog from Jackson-Madison County Rabies Control at around 10 a.m. on Nov. 12. Less than five hours later, the man was found dead in his home as the result of bite wounds. According to USA Today, the dog bit two others as well before it was shot and killed by law enforcement responding to the scene.

The attack raises questions about pet adoption policies. The law requires that all animals picked up or surrendered to animal control must be quarantined for three days. If the animal has a collar or identification chip, it’s held for up to a week. After that the animal is put up for adoption. Furthermore, there is no indication that dogs put up for adoption are assessed for dangerous behavior or that staff is required to warn people about a dog’s history of aggression.

These risks are just one reason why all citizens should be aware of the steps to take when a dog bites. That’s because knowing what you should do in the wake of a canine attack can help ensure your rights are protected at all times.

Winter Weather Driving Safety Tips

by Staff Blogger | November 17th, 2014

If you live in Middle Tennessee, it’s likely you woke up to sleet and or snow this morning. This winter precipitation not only means a season change is upon us again, but also that it’s time to begin preparations for driving in slick or snowy conditions.

At Ponce Law, our team of Goodlettsville car accident lawyers offer these tips for safe winter driving:

  • Stay Home– If road conditions are deteriorating, stay off the roads if possible and wait for the weather to clear.
  • Do Your Homework– If you must get out in bad weather, know the conditions of the roads and highways you’re planning to travel. In Tennessee, you can use the Tennessee Department of Transportation’s SmartWay maps to find this information.
  • Prepare Your Vehicle– Make sure your tires have plenty of tread and your brakes are working properly before driving on snow or ice. Be sure to check that your windshield wipers and lights are working properly as well.
  • Prepare Yourself– When traveling in bad weather, it’s wise to prepare for the worst by bringing along cold weather gear and supplies in case of emergency. This can include blankets, flashlights, food, and water.

The Tennessee personal injury attorneys at Ponce Law hope these tips help keep you and your loved ones safe throughout the winter.
