If someone else’s aggressive dog or other animal attacks or bites you in or near Addison, you may be able to obtain reimbursement for your injury and medical treatment with a premises liability or personal injury lawsuit. Texas follows what is called the “one bite” rule, which means that a dog bite victim can file a reimbursement claim against the owner of a dog if, first, the dog previously bit someone or exhibited aggressive dog behavior, and secondly, if the owner knew of the prior dog behavior. Still, if you or someone you love is the victim of aggressive dogs or any other kind of animal bite or attack in or near Addison – now or in the future – discuss your legal rights and options immediately with an experienced Addison animal bite attorney at the Weaver Injury Law Firm.

WHAT THE LAW SAYS

Under Texas personal injury law, the victims of dog bites may also be reimbursed for injuries on the grounds of negligence. Texas law defines negligence as the lack of the type of care that a reasonably cautious person would exercise in a comparable situation. Many dog bite victims are children; the elderly are also dog bite victims in higher-than-proportionate numbers. Lacerations, deep muscle wounds, disfigurement, and tendon damage are among the common effects of dog bites. The most tragic cases can result in amputation or even wrongful death, and dog bite treatment can require a lengthy period for healing. While an experienced Addison dog bite attorney at the Weaver Injury Law Firm will be able to help most animal bite victims, if you suffered any dog attacks because you provoked a dog or committed a crime in Texas, you may not have sufficient legal standing to file a lawsuit.
