Pets in the Car

Driving with a pet in the car is something that many Americans do every day. But while it is nice to have a dog companion on short or long trips, having a pet in the vehicle can also be a deadly distraction for the driver. It is common to see small dogs sitting on the laps of drivers as they cruise the streets or large dogs sitting shotgun with their heads out the window, but even the most well behaved dog is still an animal and can never be completely trusted to behave.

Driving with a dog or cat can cause serious accidents. If you or someone you love has been injured in a wreck involving a distracted driver, contact the San Antonio personal injury lawyers of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers at (210) 999-9999 to find out more about your legal options.

Pet Safety Dangers

There are a number of things that can go wrong when a pet is let loose in the car. Some common causes of car wrecks and injury include:

  • Dogs jumping into the driver’s seat, causing the driver to completely lose control of the car and his or her vision of the road.
  • Small dogs or cats jumping onto the driver’s side floorboard and hitting the accelerator or brakes.
  • Frightened dogs or cats attacking the driver.

If pets must be transported in a car, they should be kept in a secured kennel at all times.
