My mother witnessed a dog attack and someone said there was a possibility of filing a bystander claim. Is that possible?

Yes, it is possible to file a bystander claim after someone has witnessed a dog attack. If the parent or child of an injured victim saw a violent attack or witnessed a death, under Texas law, the witness may sue for mental anguish. In other words, Texas allows closely related bystanders to file suit for emotional distress.
