    I am sorry to hear about your dog. Yes - you can sue the dog owners. You cannot sue the insurance company directly under Texas law. The law in Texas had been, for years, that a dog owner could not recover mental anguish damages for the death of the dog. However, a recent Fort Worth Court of Appeals opinions decided the issue differently. The issue is currently in front of the Texas Supreme Court. The law does allow recovery of vet bills.

    It just comes down to evidence, and in this case the evidence as to whether your dog caused the injuries will be your neighbor's testimony. If your dog was not on a leash but instead running free, you will probably be responsible for any injuries it caused.

  • My dog got into a fight with another dog in our apartment building's communal backyard. Both dogs were unleashed.

    My dog's injuries were minor; the other dog required stitches. I have no clear idea of who the aggressor was. Am I responsible for his vet bills?

    Thomas’s Answer

    It will be difficult at best to determine who was responsible. Both dogs were off-leash, so both owners are potentially liable for injuries to the other dog.

    Thomas’s Answer

    You might have forever lost your right to sue for your injuries if you did not file a lawsuit within two years after the car accident. You should contact a lawyer immediately. There is typically a two-year statute of limitations on negligence claims arising out of auto accidents.

    Thomas’s Answer

    Insurance companies say lots of things to avoid paying fair compensation for injuries. You should probably hire a lawyer. If the insurance company still will not settle, it might take a jury to force them to pay.
