Dog bites and animal attacks can lead to many different injuries. Scarring, nerve damage, infection, psychological damage and even death can be the result of an animal attack.

Texas adheres to the “one bite rule.” The rule states that the victim of a dog bite can recover compensation from the owner if the dog bit someone previously or acted like it wanted to and if the owner knew of the dog’s previous conduct. The owner of the dog can also be held liable for negligence. The violation of an animal control law can result in liability. Texas also recognizes a cause of action when someone fails to stop an animal attack that has begun. In short, there are many ways a person can be held liable for the results of a dog bit or animal attack.

  • Almost every thirty seconds, someone in the United States seeks medical attention for a dog bite related injury.
  • In the United States, an estimate of one million (1,000,000) people, annually, require medical treatment for injuries related to dog bites.
  • More than 300,000 victims require hospitalization as a result of their dog bite injuries.

After a dog bite occurs, it is of the utmost important to take certain steps to collect evidence that allows doctors and other potential expert witnesses to evaluate any injuries. If you have been bitten, seek professional medical attention immediately.

Client Reviews
Guest and Gray law firm is wonderful. I have had the chance to work with three of the lawyers and they all have been wonderful. They will tell you when you need a lawyer and when you don't. They actually try to save you money. They respond very fast to questions and try to help you understand what is going on. They are caring and are really judgment free. If I needed a lawyer again I would use this firm in a second and recommend them. K.K.
