Several factors come into play when it comes to dog bites and animal attacks. These include:
- The breed of the dog, size, age and temperament of the animal
- Whether or not a leash was used at the time of the attack
- Whether or not you were trespassing on private property
- Whether or not your actions provoked an attack (i.e., teasing an aggressive dog)
- How the “One Bite Rule” applies to your specific claim
When you engage with our office, you can rest assured that your case will be thoroughly researched and that your attorney is knowledgeable about personal injury law as well as the statistics and typical causes of serious dog bites in the Dallas region.Specific Dog Breeds You Should Look Out for According to Statistics
First off, there are many breeds of dogs that are known for being aggressive and more likely to attack humans than other dogs. These breeds include pit bulls, Doberman pinschers, German shepherds and huskies. Although these dog breeds frequently top the list of those that take Americans to the hospital, they are not the only ones that might do harm to an unknowing victim. For this reason, our lawyers recommend that you always be aware of your surroundings when you are around an unfamiliar dog.
When you are walking your dog in public places like parks or city streets, it is important to keep an eye out for aggressive behavior from other dogs before they get too close to you or your pup. If you notice a dog acting especially aggressively toward another person or animal (like barking loudly or growling), do not approach them. When it comes to dogs, it's safer to err on the side of caution, even if they seem friendly.Why Contact Carabin Shaw After a Dallas Dog Bite or Attack?
