Can I Be Compensated If I Was Bit by a Dog?
Yes, you can be compensated for dog bite accidents. Our legal team can investigate your accident and determine if the dog owner was negligent in their duties of ownership when you fell victim of a bite by their pet. A dog bite attorney from our Houston law firm can determine if you have a viable personal injury lawsuit or not and file it before the statute of limitations (two years) expires.
What Are Some Dog Bite Laws in Texas?
In Texas, dog bite laws mention strict liability. This means that if the injury was caused by a dangerous dog, then you as the injured victim don’t have to demonstrate that the owner failed to use reasonable care to control their dog. Instead, you can recover damages by showing that their dog is dangerous for the public.
