Dog Bite Lawyers in Dallas

When it comes to the many types of personal injuries that one can suffer, few injuries are as dangerous and devastating as dog bites in Dallas. Texas is one of the most dog friendly states in the U.S., and Dallas doubles as one of the biggest cities in Texas. The population of stray and adoptable dogs is so large that the city is even considering banning the sale of dogs in pet stores, so as to encourage residents to find breeders or rescue dogs from shelters. With so many animals, it is only inevitable that a dog bite will occur. If you or a loved one have been the victim of a dog bite in Dallas, Carabins Shaw’s dog attack attorneys in Dallas are the top experts who can help you.

Dog attacks result in any number of terrible injuries, but the very young and the elderly are at the most risk of long-term or serious damage. Bruises, lacerations, and broken bones are only a few of the physical injuries that one can suffer after a dog bite. Unexpected medical bills, lost work hours, and even physical disability are incredibly common consequences.

Dog Bite Lawyers in Dallas

Dogs may be “man’s best friend,” but the damages they can inflict on the unsuspecting are incredible. Common injuries include:

  • Punctures
  • Damage to eyes
  • Scarring
  • Face and head injuries
  • Nerve damage

And many more, often including emotional damage and long-term trauma, especially for children. Each circumstance is unique, but working with an expert lawyer will help you to build the strongest case regardless of your circumstances.

One Bite Rule

The Texas “one bite rule” is a law that is important to understand when pursuing compensation after a dog owner’s negligence has led to an attack on you or your loved ones. While slightly confusing in name, this rule does not mean that a dog owner is not liable for the first time their dog attacks someone. Instead, it just means that the owner of a dog which has bitten someone in the past is more likely to be considered negligent for failing to stop a subsequent bite.

That being said, a dog owner may still be held liable under other circumstances even if the dog has never attacked anyone before. Proving negligence is at the core of a dog bite case. The Dallas, Texas personal injury lawyers at Carabin Shaw have the resources necessary to guarantee that your case is as strong as possible.
