Dog attacks are vicious and can cause serious or even fatal injuries. Often, these attacks cause terror in their victim, resulting in emotional and physical scarring.
Dog attacks can be particularly scary for children and the cosmetic damage caused can be particularly damaging to their self-esteem. All dog owners have a duty to protect the public from their animals, even if the animal is not considered vicious.
At our law firm, we hold negligent dog owners liable for injuries caused by their pets. We aggressively pursue full compensation for our clients to help them recover for medical expenses, reconstructive surgery, scar removal or revision, mental health counseling, lost wages, pain and suffering and other forms of available compensation.

Dog Bites in Texas
In Texas, you must prove specific enumerated facts to recover for a dog bite. When a defendant owns a dog that is classified as a “dangerous breed,” it is easier to recover damages. However, if the dog that attacked you is not defined as a “dangerous breed,” you must prove evidence establishing that the owner knew or should have known of their dog’s dangerous propensity.
Our attorneys know the requirements necessary to prove liability for dog attacks and have helped many clients recover for the injuries they sustained. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries from a dog bite, we encourage you to contact our law office for assistance.
