Animal Attack Law Firm
If you have been attacked by an animal or suffered a serious dog bite, you may be able to pursue legal action against the owner of the animal that injured you. Even though the law requires dog owners to be responsible for their pets – which means keeping them on a leash in public and confined or restrained on personal property – this is not always the case.
If an owner fails to properly restrain or control his or her animal and it results in a dog bite or attack, the owner may be held civilly liable for the attack and the injuries it resulted in. With the help of an experienced animal attack lawyer from Rad Law Firm, injured victims can file a lawsuit and seek financial compensation for the injuries they sustained.
DOG BITE LAWS
The state of Texas has a “one bite rule” in place, which has been in place since 1974. Under this law, the victim of a dog bite in Texas can hold the owner liable and receive compensation for any injuries if one of the following two conditions are met:
- The dog has bitten or attacked another person in the past
- The dog has acted like it wanted to bite a person
- The owner of the dog is aware of his or her animal’s vicious conduct
