Representing Texans - Protecting the People and Their Property

The Gattis Law Firm understands that after the trauma of an unexpected accident, involving the legal system is not likely high on your priority list. However, it is important to understand that you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses. The firm seeks to treat each client with the care and respect that they deserve while tirelessly fighting to maximize compensation. While you focus on your recovery, the firm can focus on achieving your goals and recovering your compensation.

The time frame in which a person is legally allowed to file a lawsuit is referred to as “Statute of Limitations”. For most personal injury claims the Statute of Limitations in Texas is two years from the date of the accident.

Attorney Dan Gattis played a vital role in getting Lillian’s Law passed in 2007, which makes an owner’s negligence of a dog who causes injury or death a criminal offense. Dog owners can be held liable under the following conditions:

  • They knew the dog had a dangerous propensity or had attacked another person before
  • The attack was caused by the owner’s negligence
  • The owner failed to keep their dog in an enclosed area or on a leash
  • The attack was intentionally caused by the dog owner.
