No it seems that I signed for a new card, that pertains to vet health. My intent was to allow the Kids to be able to take there dog home after treatment. they didn't have any money or work so they were of course devastated
does a leash law have any impact here? I was just trying to help there kids out
Apparently, I mistakenly signed up for a new credit service with a company called "Care Credit". I haven't signed the new card or used it, because, once signed on the back or making a payment, I will have accepted the charges as mine and mine only.
I had told the other parties that the owner of the offending dog would partially pay fo some of the cost. I do not want my personal credit affected by any missed or late payments.
So with the leash law do I have any recourse in say, small claims court, or did I commit to having signed my money away by trying to be a good neighbor ?
As to the credit card debt, and as I think you understand, any "fault" is irrelevant. All that matters in that context is whether you used the card to create the debt. If so, then this would legally be your responsibility.
Beyond that, and if the case went to small claims court, you could then argue that the other dog owner was negligent in not having the dog restrained. In the context of civil litigation, it would be important to prove who was responsible for what took place. If it could be demonstrated that the other dog was not properly restrained and that his approaching of the other dog caused the bite, then the judge might well find the other party to be responsible.
