A Texas dog owner must have the pet under control at all times.
In Texas, a dog owner may be held liable for a dog attack under the following circumstances:
- The dog owner intentionally caused the attack
- The dog owner failed to follow lease laws/similar restraint laws
- The dog owner knew the dog was dangerous (because it had previously bitten someone or demonstrated a willingness to do so) and failed to exercise caution
Serious bodily injury can occur with dog bites, including:
- Ripping of muscles on the arms, legs or face
- Tearing of tissue, resulting in scarring and disfigurement
- Rabies shots if the dog cannot be identified
- Counseling for dog bite victims who experience recurring trauma or nightmares
Depending upon the seriousness of the injury, a dog bite may even necessitate reconstructive or plastic surgery.
You deserve maximum compensation for injuries from dog bites.
