On February 17, 2022, a 6-year-old boy was attacked by a dog when he exited his school bus. The attack happened at an apartment complex school bus stop on Timberglen Road. According to eyewitnesses, the dog barged out of an apartment and attacked the young boy. A man and woman standing at the bus stop intervened and got the dog off of the young boy. The boy was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The boy had to undergo emergency surgery, and his mother reported that he was still in the hospital undergoing treatments for the attack. Police have said that the dog owner has been arrested for having a dangerous animal and that the dog was euthanized.

Dallas Dog Bites Can Be Serious Injuries

Dog bite accidents should never be overlooked as something “that just happens.” A serious dog attack like the one stated above can lead to serious injuries, permanent scarring, and emotional trauma. Dog bite attacks that happen to small children can have life-long effects on that child.

In addition to the pain and suffering endured by the dog bite victim, there are also many financial losses that occur when a dog attacks. Medical bills for the immediate and ongoing treatment for the injuries can be very high. Loss of income for the recovery period, or in this case for the parent who needs to care for her child, can cause financial strains on the family.

If you or your loved one has been attacked by a dog that resulted in serious injuries, it is important to speak with a Dallas dog bite lawyer to discover what rights you have to seek compensation for your losses.

What Can A Dallas Personal Injury Lawyer Do To Help A Dog Bite Victim?

Dog attacks fall under personal injury law. These injuries fall under premises liability laws, and your attorney will seek damages against the owner of the vicious dog because they kept a dangerous dog on their property.

Since this accident occurred in an apartment community, the case can be a little more complex in establishing who was responsible for the dog being on the premises and whether the apartment management knew how vicious the dog was and allowed it to remain in the community.
