SHREVEPORT / BOSSIER CITY PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER
There have been drastic increases in the number of dog bites and other dog-related injuries because of the increase in dog ownership and interaction between people and dogs. As a result there have been increases in dog-related injury hospitalizations. There has also been a rise in the number of aggressive dogs as people increasingly use dogs for home protection. When an aggressive dog is not properly supervised and is allowed outside of a fenced area or home, it places persons in the vicinity of the dog in danger. People are often attacked by a neighbor’s dog while on a walk down the street or traversing from their parked vehicle to the entrance of their home. Sometimes people are visiting a friend and are not warned of the aggressive nature of the friend’s dog. Many times an owner just fails to control their dog with a leash and collar. Aggressive dogs have been known to attack and chase children into the street and the path of oncoming vehicles. Dog owners have a responsibility to properly control their dogs and confine their dogs to their property. If a dog owner fails to control his dog and it results in harm to another, the owner is responsible for the harms and losses caused by his dog.
