GALVESTON — A Galveston County husband and wife are suing a League City dog owner, alleging the defendant's dog bit the husband and caused injuries.
Joe Soriano and Cora Soriano filed a lawsuit Sept. 7 in Galveston County District Court against Tikeela Monique Evans-Johnson, alleging she failed to warn the plaintiffs of the dog’s vicious and dangerous propensities.
According to the complaint, on Feb. 9, 2016, Joe Soriano and Cora Soriano were walking around their neighborhood in League City when, without warning, Evans-Johnson's dog abruptly leaped onto Joe Soriano. The suit says the dog bit and deeply punctured Soriano's left buttock, causing him physical pain, mental anguish, lost earning capacity and medical care expenses.
The plaintiffs allege Evans-Johnson failed to properly restrain her dog, failed to prevent her dog from biting Soriano and failed to assist in breaking up her dog’s attack.
The Sorianos seek trial by jury, monetary relief between $200,000 and $1 million, plus pre- and post-judgment interest and all other relief. They are represented by attorneys William R. Edwards III and Alison J. Logan of The Edwards Law Firm in Corpus Christi.
