Who Is Responsible for a Dog Bite Injury?
You may be surprised to learn that Texas does not have a statute about a dog owner’s liability for damages resulting in their dog biting someone. The state of Texas is considered a negligence or one bite rule state. That means that in a dog bite claim, the injured party must prove that either the dog’s owner knew their dog had bitten someone or acted aggressively in the past or that the owner negligently failed to practice reasonable care to control their dog or prevent the bite, resulting in a dog bite injury. This rule also applies to other injuries caused by dogs, such as a large dog jumping on a person and knocking them to the ground.
What You Should Know About Dog Bites
Many dogs are mild-mannered and well-trained, but that’s not always the case. Man’s best friend is not always all bark and no bite. Dog bites often result in scarring and infections if they aren’t treated quickly enough. Even a minor attack from an aggressive dog can result in cuts, bruises, and deep tooth punctures. Those injuries often result in expensive medical bills. Our experienced dog bite attorneys can help you obtain compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
