Dog bite injury laws in Texas can be very success and difficult to navigate. Texas follows the “one free bite” rule. In the case of most breeds, the courts may not place liability on the pet owner if the dog has no previous record of a bite or attack. It is important to thoroughly investigate the case to determine whether the dog has bitten multiple dog bite victims or if the owner was negligent in handling the dog. If a dog is deemed by a Court to be dangerous to the public, there can be severe consequences for both the owner and the dog.
In addition, children are often dog bite victims, often from a dog with which they are familiar. It is often difficult to determine whether the dog bit the child as a result of rough play or whether the dog was provoked. Many dog owners will protect their dog’s reputation at the expense of a dog bite victim. Therefore, the investigation into a dog bite case starts immediately and an experienced dog bite lawyer should start as quickly as possible. Additionally, the CDC has helpful advice on how to prevent a dog bite and how to recover from a vicious dog bite. If you or someone you know is a dog bite victim, you should contact a dog bite injury lawyer and follow these guidelines. Please call (713) 974-0388.
