It is a nightmare to have a vicious dog interrupt your evening walk around a West Texas or Eastern New Mexico park or neighborhood. Whether in Lubbock, Hobbs, Artesia, Plainview, Clovis, Carlsbad, Roswell, Brownfield, Seminole, or another West Texas or Eastern New Mexico Community, Dog attacks and bites seem to happen more frequently as Pitt Bull and Rottweiler breeds become more popular. A dog bite causes severe injuries sometimes resulting in serious nerve damage, infection, disease, permanent scarring, and psychological harm lasting the rest of your life.
To prevail in a case against a dog owner when attacked, the victim must prove that the animal was owned and kept by the person sued. Additionally, the victim must prove that an owner was somehow negligent, such as by not properly restraining or containing the animal. Without an attorney, you may be bitten twice, once by the animal and again financially when you are unable to properly pursue the legal steps necessary to recover your medical bills and suffering.
