Dallas, TX – 2 Injured in Dog Bite Accident on Gross Rd
Dallas, TX (June 1, 2019) On the morning of June 1st, a dog bite accident happened in the 1900 block of Gross Road. Witnesses called 911 several times about a man and a woman being viciously attacked by several Rottweilers. The attack started at approximately 8:37 a.m.
When the police arrived to help, they fired a gun, which hit one of the dogs and caused the other ones to run away.
Both victims sustained serious injuries and were transported to a nearby hospital for medical attention.
The police are still investigating the accident to determine who the three dogs belong to and why they were attacking those two people. One of the dogs was killed after being shot by an officer, the second one was injured, and the third one was taken to animal control.
Our thoughts are with the two injured victims and their families at this time.
Dog Bite Accidents in Texas
About 800,000 people are injured nationally every year after being attacked by dogs. Because Texas is one of the few states that does not contain a statute that covers a dog owner’s civil liability for damages that their dogs cause, it’s highly important for injured victims to seek help from an experienced Texas dog bite lawyer to ensure they successfully pursue dog owners for damages and losses.
At Benton Law Firm, our experienced attorneys have helped victims who have been attacked by dogs file personal injury lawsuits for years. We believe owners should be held financially responsible for the actions of their dog, especially if their dog senselessly attacks another person.
