My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Texas
So a few months back, my sister was walking in the neighborhood when she all of a sudden noticed a neighbors german shepard run up to her and start barking visciously. She starts to try to back away and as she does she falls on there curb and cracks her ribs plus scratched up her hands as she fell. Dog owner finally runs out to get his dog away. She went home crying from pain and fear. We have warned the owner about his dog being loose before and he has ignored us. So we decided to get a lawyer to sue for her injuries.
The attorney is a compensation attorney and said she has a case. Home owner refused to give up his insurance info stating its my sisters fault for not keeping calm and caused the accident upon herself. He now also claims that its his grandsons dog who lives with him. Now my lawyer wants to back out because he feels there's not enough money in it for him to go to court. And without the lawsuit she gets stuck with all the hospital bills minus all the 8 weeks of pain and suffering from recovering from her injuries, nightmares,etc...
My question is if we hired a hourly attorney, what are her chances of winning the case in court? Also any other recommendations will be greatly appreciated on how to proceed regarding this. Thanks
