Q. My dog and my neighbors dog got into a fight. My do push his way under the fence I fixed the fence
A: If I am understanding the facts correctly, your dog trespassed onto the neighbor's property. You stated this was the 2nd time your dog had done this, so an argument could be made that you knew there was a risk of your dog trespassing and the issues should have been previously addressed, by securing the fence or confining your dog. I agree with your neighbor that you should pay for the vet bills caused by your trespassing dog and in your negligence in addressing the issue. However, if you pay the vet bills, you will need to have your neighbor sign a release of all claims. If you have homeowners or renters insurance, they might cover the claim after you pay your deductible. However, it might be a small enough bill that you might just want to pay it so your insurance rates don't increase.
Q. What kind of a lawyer do I need for a vandal case?
A: Options: 1) If you have insurance coverage you can make a claim with your own insurance company and pay the deductible. 2) If you have proof such as an admission, video or witnesses or saw the event yourself you could make a police report and hope they do something. If she is criminally convicted she would have to pay restitution for the damage. Or, if you chose to forgive her, you could accept a civil compromise and just let her pay for the damage. 3) If she has insurance such as a homeowners insurance policy, she may have coverage for negligence. Insurance will not cover intentional torts. So, if it is possible she was negligent, her insurance would likely cover if you allege negligence.
Q. How do I revise a restraining order to gain custody of my dog who is registered in the county and chip in my name.
A: Assuming the person who put the restraining order on you has your dog, you should promptly challenge the restraining order within the statutory period noted on your paperwork. You can challenge all or a portion of a restraining order.
