BEAUMONT – A Beaumont man is seeking damages after an alleged dog attack in the city.
Earl Pittman filed a complaint on Oct. 13 in the Jefferson County District Court against Dickie Rawls and Valerie Rawls
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 15, 2015, he was riding a bicycle on Rose Lane in Beaumont when defendants' unleashed dog chased and attacked him and in the process caused the plaintiff to "fly over the handlebars and crash to the ground." He alleges his head, left knee, forearm and shoulder were injured during the incident.
The plaintiff holds Dickie Rawls and Valerie Rawls responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to secure their dog and failed to train their dog to cease and attack with a voice command.
The plaintiff seeks monetary relief of more than $100,000 but not more than $200,000 and such other relief to which he may be entitled. He is represented by Jonathan C. Juhan and J.J. Bragg of Jonathan C. Juhan, Attorney at Law in Beaumont.
