Delivery Worker Sues Dog Owners for Injuries Suffered after Dog Attack

On May 19, 2022, a Galveston County resident, and delivery worker (“delivery worker”) filed a complaint in the Galveston County District Court against a couple (“defendants”) after their dogs attacked him. The delivery worker brought negligence and strict liability causes of action against the defendants.

On October 12, 2020, the delivery worker was delivering a package to the defendant’s residence. The delivery worker claims that while delivering the package, the defendant’s two dogs attacked him causing him significant injuries to his back. The delivery worker further alleges the defendants were aware of their dogs’ aggressive nature yet allowed them to remain unrestrained. 

The delivery worker alleges the defendants owed a legal duty to protect him and others from their dogs. The delivery worker alleges the defendants breached this duty when they failed to take appropriate action to protect him from their dogs’ attack.

The delivery worker claims the defendants were negligent in failing to properly train their dogs and were further negligent in failing to post signs warning about the presence of the dogs, the danger presented by them, and the boundaries of the electronic fence at the property.

The delivery worker seeks monetary relief for damages resulting from, among others, past and future physical pain and suffering, physical impairment, medical expenses, and physical disfigurement. The delivery worker is seeking monetary relief in the amount up to $250,000.
