Understanding Dog Bite Laws in Texas
Texas follows a “one bite rule,” which means you can recover
compensation for their injuries if
- The dog previously acted like it wanted to bite someone or actually bit
- 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
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 an attorney.
With the help of a lawyer, you can pursue the financial compensation you
need and deserve.
