A motorcycle may be a fun mode of transportation, but it is also one that carries increased risk to the operator. When a motorcycle is involved in a crash with a passenger vehicle, the rider may end up more seriously injured than he or she would have in a crash between two cars. This is likely what happened in a recent car accident here in Massachusetts involving an SUV and a motorcycle that left the rider with severe injuries.
Many people here in Massachusetts rely on emotional-support animals for comfort and other therapeutic benefits. They are often life-saving for their companions and allow their humans to do activities they might not otherwise be able to do. However, there have been some owners who misuse the "emotional-support" designation or who haven't had their animals properly trained. One man who was attacked by an emotional-support dog on a flight recently filed a civil claim against the dog's owner and the airline after he suffered a serious dog bite.
