Las Vegas Automobile Accident Attorney Clarifies What to do When Pets Are Involved in Car Accidents
We love our pets like they’re a part of the family. We want to do everything in our power to keep them safe and give them the healthiest, longest life possible. This is why it’s so surprising how little thought people put into driving around with their cat or dog in the car. Traveling with an unrestrained pet is putting your furry friend in grave danger. If there were to be a car collision while your pet is in the car, it’s quite likely that the pet would be projected from the vehicle unless restrained in some safe way. The Center for Pet Safety performed crash tests to rate the effectiveness of canine travel restraints. They obviously aim to improve the safety of our pets, but also the safety of humans in the car. When a pet is unrestrained and involved in a car collision, it becomes a dangerous projectile traveling at high speeds that can injure other passengers and cars on the road. Car crashes involving pets makes for slightly more complicated legal cases. Consider speaking to a Las Vegas automobile accident attorney as it pertains to your specific situation.
