Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

Dog bites and dog attacks can cause serious personal injury losses – not just physical but psychological as well. A serious dog bite can cause abrasions and lacerations as well as broken bones and crush injuries due to the force of the bite. Children are frequently dog bite victims and the injuries they suffer are most often on the face, due to their small stature. In some cases, a dog attack may even lead to death. Carabin & Shaw Law Firm have a team of experienced personal injury lawyers who accept dog bite injury cases throughout Texas.

Dog Bite Claims and Lawsuits

In Texas the law is very clear in regards to liability in dog bite claims and lawsuits. Due to strict liability laws that the state observes, a dog owner is held strictly liable for injuries and damages incurred as a result of an attack by their dog. Whether or not the dog owner was negligent is not a factor in determining whether the owner is liable in the instance of a dog bite insurance claim or lawsuit. For a dog bite lawyer, this means that it is not necessary to prove that an animal has attacked before or that it had the propensity to attack.
