Dog bites are not minor injuries. In fact, dog attacks can result in disfigurement, amputations, and a number of diseases and long-term psychological problems. In the U.S, over 800,000 victims require medical dog bite treatment every year, and more than 30,000 of those victims need surgery. In fact, biting dogs can be deadly. Aggressive dogs in 2012 took 38 lives in the United States. More than half the victims of dog bites are small children. It’s imperative for pet owners to take the responsibility to protect children and others. Additionally, children must be taught to avoid any aggressive dog or other strange animals and pets.
YOU CAN BE COMPENSATED
If someone else’s aggressive dog or other animal attacks or bites you or your child in or near Allen, under Texas personal injury law, the victims of aggressive dog behavior and other animal attacks may be entitled to reimbursement for their medical expenses and other bite-related damages. Texas has a “one bite” rule, which means that a dog bite victim may seek reimbursement from a dog’s owner if the dog previously bit someone or expressed aggressive dog behavior, and if the owner was aware of that dog behavior. Victims may also sue for reimbursement based on a pet owner’s negligence.
