Dog & Animal Bites
Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
Dogs make great pets when they remain well-behaved but serious injury may occur should they attack an innocent bystander. Every year nearly 5 million dog bites occur in the United States and they can result in serious injuries or even death especially when young children are involved. More than 800,000 bites each year require medical care and 82 percent of dog bites treated in an emergency room involve children under the age of 15.
Animal bites aren’t only physically detrimental, causing infection, scars, or disfigurement, but they can also cause emotional problems. It isn’t abnormal for an animal bite victim to suffer from anxiety long after the incident has occurred. It is because of this, that The Law Offices of W.T. Johnson take these personal injury claims very seriously. Our dog bite lawyers have seen first hand the lasting damage animal attacks leave.
Don’t settle for less than what you deserve. Call us today to talk to an expert dog bite attorney and discuss your claim free of charge.
Dog and Animal Bite Lawsuits
In Texas, pet owners are liable in these cases:
- Owner intentionally instigates attack
- Negligence in handling or controlling animal
- Leash law violations
- A history of attacks
Additionally, when an owner puts others in danger simply by having a dog, he/she is held responsible for the dog’s actions. This is commonly referred to as “Negligence Per Se”
