When Should You {Sue|File a Claim against} the dog owner?

Image result for what action should be taken on owner in dog bite

The short answer is that you {should|ought to|must|need to} {file|submit} {a lawsuit|a suit|a claim} {against|versus} {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} owner when you have {a valid|a legitimate} case– whether it’s for {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} bite injury or some other loss {caused by|triggered by|brought on by} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}– {and when|when} the {potential|prospective|possible} {result|outcome} would {be worth|deserve} your {time and money|money and time}

. The following {lists|notes} some {general|basic} {indicators|signs|indications} that a victim {should|ought to|must|need to} {heed|observe|follow|hearken} when {considering|thinking about} whether to {file|submit} {a personal injury|an injury|an accident} {lawsuit|suit|claim}, {including|consisting of} both legal and {personal|individual} {indicators|signs|indications}:

  • From a legal {perspective|point of view|viewpoint}, does a victim {actually|really|in fact} hold {a viable|a practical|a feasible} claim for {compensation|payment|settlement}, which {ultimately|eventually} {may|might} be held to legal {standards|requirements} of {negligence|carelessness|neglect} and proximate cause in a courtroom trial?
  • Did the victim sustain damages in excess of the {costs|expenses} of {filing|submitting} {a lawsuit|a suit|a claim} and the {potential|prospective|possible} {financial|monetary} losses {incurred|sustained} in the process of {recovery|healing}? {Often|Frequently|Typically}, victims {facing|dealing with} {long-term|long-lasting} medical {issues|problems|concerns}, medical {bills|expenses|costs}, {rehabilitative|corrective} care, or other {economic|financial} damages {should|ought to|must|need to} {consider|think about} filing suit. Victims {should|ought to|must|need to} {keep in mind|bear in mind|remember} that any future claims for injuries and other damages {must|should|need to} be {included|consisted of} in the {suit|fit|match} or settlement {agreement|contract|arrangement}, as {defendant|accused|offender}’s liability for future damages is {often|frequently|typically} {erased|removed|eliminated} in a settlement or award.
  • Did the victim experience damages, {including|consisting of} non-economic damages, which they feel they {deserve|are worthy of|should have} {compensation|payment|settlement} for, and more {importantly|significantly|notably}, are the {perceived|viewed} non-economic damage claims sustainable from a legal {perspective|point of view|viewpoint}? If so, a victim {should|ought to|must|needs to} {consider|think about} filing suit.
  • Who are the {potentially|possibly} {liable|responsible|accountable} {parties|celebrations}? Though not {based on|based upon} any legal {grounds|premises}, {individual|private|specific} victims are {often|frequently|typically} {hesitant|reluctant} to {sue|take legal action against} {individuals|people} or {small businesses|small companies} not covered by liability {insurance|insurance coverage}. {In most cases|In many cases|For the most parts|Most of the times}, victims {simply|just|merely} {want|desire} {compensation|payment|settlement} for their {economic|financial} losses, and in turn, would {prefer|choose} not to {cause|trigger} {a private|a personal} {individual|specific} or {relatively|fairly|reasonably} {small business|small company} {undue|unnecessary|excessive} {hardship|difficulty|challenge} in {recovering|recuperating} {compensation|payment|settlement}.
  • If {a given|a provided|an offered} injury {presents|provides} major medical {expenses|costs|expenditures}, lost {income|earnings}, {persistent|consistent|relentless} {pain|discomfort}, or otherwise {prevents|avoids} a victim from physically {performing|carrying out} in the {manner|way} they did {before|prior to} {an accident|a mishap} or injury, they {should|ought to|must|need to} {consider|think about} filing suit.
  • If the victim feels their injuries and damages will {only|just} {compound|intensify} as time goes on, they {most likely|probably|more than likely} will {also|likewise} {find|discover} {a good|a great|an excellent} {reason to|need to} {file|submit} {a lawsuit|a suit|a claim}.

When Should You {Sue|File a Claim against} the Owner?

The short answer is that you {should|ought to|must|need to} {file|submit} {a lawsuit|a suit|a claim} {against|versus} {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} owner when you have {a valid|a legitimate} case– whether it’s for {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} bite injury or some other loss {caused by|triggered by|brought on by} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}– {and when|when} the {potential|prospective|possible} {result|outcome} would {be worth|deserve} your {time and money|money and time}.

Can You Win the Claim?

{Attack Dog|Dangerous Canine|Vicious Dog} owner can be {held responsible|called to account} when {his or her|his/her} {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s {behavior|habits} {leads to|results in|causes} injuries or {property|residential or commercial property|home} damage, {but|however} the {extent|degree|level} of the liability and {what|exactly what} {needs to|has to} be {proven|shown} in a legal case {varies|differs} from {state to state|one state to another}.

In some states, the {Attack Dog|Dangerous Canine|Vicious Dog} owner {is subject to|goes through|undergoes} {strict|stringent|rigorous} liability, {meaning|implying|indicating|suggesting} that fault on the part of the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} owner does not {need to|have to} be {established|developed} if the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} bites {someone|somebody}. In these states, {a few|a couple of} {questions|concerns} {usually|typically|normally|generally} {need to|have to} be {resolved|dealt with|fixed|solved} {before|prior to} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} owner will be {liable|responsible|accountable}– such as whether the {person|individual} who was bitten was {lawfully|legally} on the {property|residential or commercial property|home} where the bite {occurred|happened|took place}, and whether {he or she|she or he} did anything to provoke the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}.

Other states follow a “one bite” or {negligence|carelessness|neglect} {rule|guideline}, where the focus is on whether the owner {knew|understood} or {should|ought to|must|need to} have {known|understood} that the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} {might|may} bite, and whether the owner took {necessary|required|needed|essential} {precautions|safety measures|preventative measures} {based on|based upon} that {knowledge|understanding}.

Prior to the twentieth century, {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} owner was {only|just} held {liable|responsible|accountable} for his {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s biting {someone|somebody} if the owner had {reason to|need to} {know|understand} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} {might|may} bite. This was called the “one bite” {rule|guideline} {because|since|due to the fact that} it {generally|typically|normally|usually} {meant|implied|indicated|suggested} that {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} was {allowed|enabled|permitted} “one {free|totally free|complimentary} bite” {before|prior to} it would get its owner in legal {trouble|difficulty|problem}.

In {modern|contemporary|modern-day} times, the one bite {rule|guideline} does not {necessarily|always} {allow|enable|permit} {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} one {free|totally free|complimentary} bite. If an owner {knows|understands} {the particular|the} {breed|type} {is dangerous|threatens}, or if {the particular|the} {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} might be {prone|susceptible|vulnerable} to biting because of its {general|basic} character or {recent|current} {events|occasions}, he could be {liable|responsible|accountable} for the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s {first|very first} bite.

The focus is on whether the owner {knew|understood} or {should|ought to|must|need to} have {known|understood} that the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} {might|may} bite, and whether the owner took {necessary|required|needed|essential} {precautions|safety measures|preventative measures} {based on|based upon} that {knowledge|understanding}. {For example|For instance}, if {a relatively|a fairly|a reasonably} aggressive {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} {recently|just recently} {underwent|went through} {surgery|surgical treatment} and the owner did not {warn|caution|alert} {a house|a home} {guest|visitor} not to {pet|animal|family pet} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}, the owner might be held {liable|responsible|accountable} if {the house|your home|your house} {guest|visitor} {aggravated|worsened|intensified|exacerbated} the {area|location} of the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s {surgery|surgical treatment} and was {subsequently|consequently} bitten.

Whether the owner {knew|understood} or {should|ought to|must|need to} have {known|understood} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} {might|may} bite can be {a very|an extremely|a really} {complicated|complex} and {contested|objected to} {question|concern}. The {plaintiff|complainant} will {need to|have to} {provide|offer|supply} {enough|sufficient|adequate} {evidence|proof} to {convince|persuade|encourage} the jury it was “{more likely|most likely} than not” the {defendant|accused|offender} {knew|understood} or {should|ought to|must|need to} have {known|understood}, and the {defendant|accused|offender} will {need to|have to} argue why the {plaintiff|complainant}’s {evidence|proof} is insufficient or {provide|offer|supply} {contradictory|inconsistent} {evidence|proof}.

The {kind of|type of|sort of} {circumstantial evidence|inconclusive evidence} the {plaintiff|complainant} {might|may} {rely on|depend on|count on} {includes|consists of}: the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s {breed|type}, {what|exactly what} the owner {used|utilized} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} for (i.e. {protection|security|defense}), how the owner trained the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}, {neighbors|next-door neighbors}’ experience with the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} and/or {warnings|cautions} from the owner, and how {extensively|thoroughly} the owner {typically|generally|usually|normally} {restrained|limited} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}.

Is It Worth It to {Sue|File Claim against} the Owner?

The {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s owner {may|might} {very well|extremely well|effectively} be {liable|responsible|accountable} for your injuries or other damages, {but|however} from {a practical|an useful} {standpoint|perspective|viewpoint}, you {need to|have to} ask yourself whether pursuing a legal {remedy|treatment|solution} will {really|truly|actually} {be worth|deserve} the time, {money|cash|loan}, and effort. If you were nipped on the hand and hand {a puncture|a leak} {wound|injury} {treated|dealt with} at the ER, you {might|may} {want to|wish to} {think twice about|reconsider|hesitate about} making a claim. On the other hand, if you{‘ve| have actually} suffered {significant|considerable|substantial} injuries or other losses– {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} attack {costs|expenses} you {thousands of|countless} dollars in {livestock|animals}, {for example|for instance}– then {filing|submitting} {a lawsuit|a suit|a claim} is {probably|most likely} {a good idea|a smart idea|a great idea}.

Texas hold {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} owners {liable|responsible|accountable} for the {harm|damage} or damage that their animal {causes|triggers} to {people|individuals} or other {dogs|canines|pet dogs|pets}. In {TXcounty}, {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} attack victims are {given|provided|offered} {two|2} possible {ways|methods} to {prove|show} owner {negligence|carelessness|neglect} when bringing {a personal injury|an injury|an accident} or wrongful death claim.

  1. The first option is that of {strict|stringent|rigorous} liability, {whereby|where} a victim and their {attorney|lawyer} {must|should|need to} {prove|show} that either the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} {has|has actually} {attacked|assaulted} {someone else|another person|somebody else} {previously|formerly} ({known as|referred to as|called} the “one bite law”) {or else|otherwise} that the owner {should|ought to|must|need to} otherwise {have|have actually} {known|understood} their {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} was vicious and/or {dangerous|harmful|hazardous|unsafe}.
  2. The {second|2nd} {option|choice|alternative} is that of owner {negligence|carelessness|neglect}, which could be argued in cases as {various|different|numerous} as {dogs|canines|pet dogs|pets} being {allowed|enabled|permitted} to {roam|wander|stroll} {freely|easily} around {neighborhoods|communities|areas}, or {parents|moms and dads} {allowing|enabling|permitting} their {children|kids} to {play with|have fun with} pet {dogs|canines} while {unsupervised|without supervision|not being watched}. {Also|Likewise} in {TXcounty}, {as of|since} September 1, 2007,’Lillian’s Law’ {has|has actually} {taken effect|worked}, {whereby|where} the owner of {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} that {causes|triggers} death or {serious|major|severe} {bodily|physical} injury {may|might} be {charged with|accused of} {a second|a 2nd} or third degree felony when the attack {takes place|occurs|happens} outside the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s {normal|typical|regular} place of confinement (Texas Health & {Safety|Security} Code Chapter 882).
  3. One {final|last} note on “when to {sue|take legal action against}”: Your state has {a personal injury|an injury|an accident} statute of {limitations|restrictions|constraints} that sets {a limit|a limitation} on the {amount|quantity} of time {an injured|a hurt} {person|individual} can wait {before|prior to} {filing|submitting} their case in the state’s civil court system. If you’re {thinking about|considering|thinking of} {filing|submitting} {a lawsuit|a suit|a claim} over {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} bite injuries, you {need to|have to} {pay attention to|take note of|focus on|take notice of} and {abide by|follow|comply with} this {deadline|due date}.
