Texas Dog Bite Laws
Texas follows what is known as the “one bite rule.” Often, this is mistaken as a one bite free rule that absolves a dog owner’s liability for injuries if it’s the first time the dog has bitten anyone. However, this simply isn’t true.
Here are the things you need to prove to recover damages in a dog bite case:
- The dog has a past of either biting someone else or acting aggressively
- The owner knew or should have known about this history
- The owner didn’t take reasonable action to prevent the dog from biting the victim
As your personal injury lawyer, Daniel Horowitz is here to fight for your dog bite case. Our team gathers compelling evidence and creates a strong case against the dog owner.
Dog owners often have liability coverage for dog bites and other pet-related injuries through their homeowners or renters insurance. Often, you can seek compensation from these insurance companies through a personal injury claim. If the owner doesn’t have insurance or the dog is a breed excluded from the insurance company, then you may have to file a lawsuit against the owner. Dog breeds commonly excluded by insurance policies include pit bulls, chows, and Doberman pinchers, which are among the top breeds responsible for fatal attacks.
We are here to help you understand your legal options and fight your case. Our firm is your partner in seeking compensation for your personal injury accident and fights tirelessly for your rights after a dog bite.
