Understanding Dog Bite Laws in Texas
Texas follows a “one bite rule,” which means you can recover compensation for your injuries if
- The dog previously acted like it wanted to bite someone or actually bit someone, and
- The dog’s owner knew about the animal’s history of aggressive behavior or inclinations
This means that, if the dog’s owner knew or should have known about the animal’s tendency to attack people, the owner is responsible for any injuries, damages, or death caused by the dog.
What to Do If You Sustain a Dog Bite in Houston
If you’re bit by a dog, contact your doctor immediately and seek medical attention. Even seemingly minor dog bites can lead to serious infection, especially without proper medical treatment. This is especially important if the animal carried a disease, which may not be apparent at the time of the injury.
After seeking medical treatment, get in touch with our Houston dog bite injury attorney. With the help of a lawyer, you can pursue the financial compensation you need and deserve.
