Dog bites occur every day throughout the United States. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 4.5 million Americans are the victims of dog bites every year. Dog bites often result in the need for emergency medical attention, long-term medical care, surgery, and physical therapy. In the worst dog bite cases, the result can be the loss of a loved one. 

For dog bite victims, the physical, emotional, and financial costs can be life-altering. 

What to Know About Dog Bite Cases 

In the event of a serious dog bite or attack, it’s important for victims to know their legal rights. The owner of the dog or the owner of the property where the dog was located may be held legally responsible to pay for your medical care and other injuries or losses you have experienced. 

Liability, or legal responsibility, in these matters may vary depending on the nature of the incident, negligence on the part of the dog owner, and whether the dog showed aggressive behavior in the past.

In Texas, dog owners may be held legally responsible for injuries their animal inflicts under the following circumstances:

  • The dog has previously attacked someone or exhibited aggressive behavior in the past, and the owner knew of this.
  • The dog’s owner had a duty to reasonably protect others from injury caused by the dog and failed to uphold this duty, resulting in the victim’s injuries.
  • The dog’s owner was in violation of animal control laws, and the dog attacked and injured the victim.

This can make it more challenging for dog bite lawyers to recover compensation for victims, and even more difficult and time-consuming for victims to pursue damages on their own. 

Why Hire a Dog Bite Lawyer to Help with Your Case?

For victims who were attacked by a dangerous dog, or for family members of a loved one who was bitten, it’s important to act quickly and consult an experienced dog bite attorney regarding your rights. 

Dog bite lawyers will stand up to insurance companies who attempt to take advantage of victims by offering sub-par settlements. They will handle the details of your claim, including investigating the incident and finding solid evidence to support your claim and build an ironclad case against the at-fault party. 

With experience and resources, a dog bite lawyer can thoroughly investigate a case to determine how to best navigate state laws and prove fault. Ultimately, the goal of connecting with an attorney is to ensure you have time to focus on healing your emotional and physical wounds while experiencing peace of mind knowing that your financial interests are being taken care of.

The car accident I had with my 5 year old daughter was one of the most horrific moments and experiences of my life. Fortunately, she was not injured but I had some back issues. I was living in McAllen at the time, but it was actually another attorney that recommend me to Mr. Lopez. Unlike other Attorneys or law groups, Mr. Lopez is more hands on when it came to taking care of my back issues. . His paralegals and secretaries Veronica and Giselle were always helpful. I never felt like I was bothering them and I always had very prompt if not immediate responses. My friend told me that it would take a long time to settle with an insurance company, but Mr. Lopez and his team were able to get money in my pocket within months. My car was completely fixed and they helped with a rental car as well. I was able to go to rehab, pain doctors and chiropractors until I felt better. This group and Mr, Lopez personally, were truly concerned with my well-being , health and compensation. I have recommended Mr. Lopez to all of my friends and family. They have all been grateful for my recommendations. I highly recommend Mr. Lopez as his office is smaller yet as strong or stronger as law offices that are located in San Antonio and Dallas

After doing a lot of research on attorneys in the area of Hidalgo County I chose The Lopez law firm. This was the first time I needed to consult any attorney. When I first consulted with Mr. Lopez and his team I never imagine my case would run only for one year. I am glad I chose Mr. Lopez as my attorney. He fought hard for my case. He was always very willing to meet my needs. At the end my case was won. If I ever need from them again I know they will be eager to help. Thank you Mr. Lopez and the Lopez law firm.
