HOUSTON — A Baytown woman is suing her employer, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.

Autumn Biscamp filed a complaint June 2 in the Harris County District Court against Special Pals Inc. alleging the employer breached its duty to exercise reasonable care to avoid harm to others.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 3, 2015, she was taking a dog outside on a leash when a black lab broke through its cage and attacked her. The plaintiff sustained serious and permanent injuries resulting in pain and suffering, disfigurement, loss of earnings and medical expenses. The plaintiff holds Special Pals responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide adequate training and supervision and failed to properly lock cages.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of between $200,000 and $1 million and other just and equitable relief. She is represented by Joshua Estes of The Estes Law Firm PC in Richmond.
