Bark and Bite: Are You Liable If Your Dog Bites Someone?

If you're anything like me, you LOVE your animals and believe they can do no wrong. I grew up with a household full of everything you can think of: Dogs, horses, cats, turtles, birds, fish, hamsters and even sugar gliders (if you don't know what they are, they kind of look like flying squirrels). What happens, though, when your beloved pet does act out? Are you liable for that bite, that scratch or that kick? Let's focus on man's best friend for now. Personally, it's my pet of choice, because I have three dogs.

Courts receive IVC filter lawsuits

In case after case detailing injuries patients sustained after receiving the surgically implanted inferior vena cava filter, plaintiffs in these product liability lawsuits have heaped upon the court scientific evidence of device failure rates. As IVC lawsuits continue to be filed across the nation, a federal panel of judges are preparing to decide, perhaps as soon as August, whether one court should receive similar IVC lawsuits filed against Bard for uniform pretrial management.

Some IVC filters can pose serious risks

Some of the cage-like filters designed to stop blood clots from flowing from the lower part of the body to the heart apparently turned out to be defective. Victims of those defects from several states want a panel of federal judges to decide July 30 to centralize the product liability litigation before a single federal judge for more economical pretrial management.

Preventing construction accidents

More than 80,000 workers annually in the U.S. suffer an injury on construction sites, according to the Construction Industry Safety Initiative, the inspiration of major U.S. contractors who every year devote a week in May to raising the awareness of workplace safety. About a fifth of the 4,000 or so U.S. workplace fatalities that occur every year are in the construction industry, according to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
