When you are out for a run or bike ride, the last thing you want to hear is a the sound of a barking dog getting closer and closer as you run or pedal faster and faster.  Being chased by a dog can be frightening and — more importantly — dangerous.  ABRAMS LANDAU, Ltd. is frequently contacted by cyclists and runners who have been chased, attacked and bitten by dogs.  One Virginia cyclist recently wrote,

“This is not the first time the owner unleashed the dogs on us. It is the second time I wiped out because of this dog. What can I do about it? There must be some law!?!?”

In fact, there are laws that hold dog owners accountable for the actions of their animals. Read here for more information about how Herndon bike accident attorney Doug Landau can help if you have been a  victim of a dangerous dog. If you have been attacked, chased or otherwise put in fear of being bitten by a dog, and there are questions as to what laws apply, contact ABRAMS LANDAU at once by phone (703-796-9555) or email.
