As an attorney, I have handled dog attack cases involving all sorts of dog breed, including one involving a Golden Retriever (which is usually a very docile and unaggressive breed). However, with fatal dog attacks, also known as canine homicides, a disproportionate number of such attacks are by breeds which are conventionally considered to have violent propensities. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that pit bull terriers are responsible for 32 percent of all canine homicides in the US. Rottweilers are the second most fatal breed, accounting for 19 percent of such deaths. As such, these two breeds alone account for more deadly attacks than all other breeds combined.
Losing someone you love to such a violent death is surely an incredibly traumatic experience for family members to endure. It is perfectly natural for immediate relatives to demand justice for the person whose life has been lost. At the Anderson Law Firm, our wrongful death attorneys have experience in fighting for the rights of animal attack victims and recover the full and fair compensation afforded under Texas law by making a claim against the negligent owner of the vicious dog responsible for your loved one's death.
We are able to recover compensation for any and all doctor, hospital and other medical bills for any treatment they may have received for their injuries before passing away; along with other damages typically awarded in Texas wrongful death cases.
