Two Parties Sued After Dog Attacks Passerby
A quick stroll around your neighborhood with your beloved pooch as a companion can be the relaxing time needed after a stressful day. Unfortunately, this relatively safe act can potentially become dangerous if a negligent dog owner decides to leave their gates open. This became a harsh reality for a victim of an alleged dog attack who has now filed a lawsuit.
Fight in the Court
The victim of the attack filed the lawsuit against a dog owner and a property owner through his parent and legal guardian in Jefferson County District Court after he was allegedly attacked by four pit bulls in late April of this year. According to the lawsuit, the victim was walking his dog outside of the dog owner’s home when the four animals attacked. The complaint alleges the bites to the victim were severe enough to cause serious permanent damage.
The two parties named in the lawsuit are accused of negligence for failing to take the necessary steps to avoid the attack. The plaintiff is seeking to recover an unspecified amount of monetary damages.
