Dog Bite Injuries in Texas: Law Determining Owner Fault

Although certain breeds of dogs are larger and more aggressive than other breeds, any dog with teeth can inflict dog bite injuries on unsuspecting victims. As a victim or parent of a victim with serious injuries, you have rights under the Texas dog bite law. To protect these rights, you should consult with a Houston personal injury lawyer. 

Common Culprits Behind Serious Dog Bite Injuries

In fairness, it should be noted that: 
  • any dog that is trained to attack or treated harshly is susceptible to attack anyone. Owners or handlers are often responsible for turning friendly pets into dangerous dogs;
  • a dog owner or handler who is irresponsible can create a situation that puts people in danger. For example, in the year 2000, a tiny Pomeranian fatally attacked an infant when the baby's uncle left the room; and
  • any breed can be a loving pet. It would be unscientific to recognize a breed and then state whether it will attack. 
A dog bite injury can lead to costly medical procedures, lost wages and significant physical and emotional pain. A Houston personal injury lawyer may be able to help you hold the dog's owner responsible. Consult a lawyer today to discuss your legal options.
