Of all forms of personal injury, perhaps one of the most unique when it comes to litigation is that of animal attacks and dog bites.
Over the past few years, the city of El Paso’s courts and judges have encountered multiple cases of dog bites, and even some reported fatalities after injuries sustained in animal / pet attacks.
But unfortunately, liability in these cases is often not as easily determinable as in other personal injury lawsuits. In an auto accident, for example, culpability for damages sustained in the collision can usually be traced to one of the people or parties at the scene.
Many times, animal attacks are less discernible and require the legal guidance of a West Texas dog bite & animal attack lawyer.
A dog bite victim should file a medical report with local animal control after being treated for the bite. El Paso residents should file their reports with the City of El Paso Animal Services.
