Such accidents are quite complex because there is no liable party. Dogs or other animals can run on roads and cause serious collisions, often with fatal outcomes for the driver.
If you were involved in a similar accident, the best way to set things clear is to hire an attorney. They will investigate your case, gather evidence, interview witnesses, and so on.
That will help your case when seeking a claim. If a pet was involved in the accident, the victim might file a lawsuit against the owner.
The claim would cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and any other fees related to the accident. So, if you were a part of a similar crash, make sure you get legal help on time. Dealing with insurance companies can be stressful and complex.
