We Fight for Your Compensation After a Dog Bite in San Antonio

After having been the victim of a San Antonio dog bite, you may be unsure of how best to fight for the justice you deserve. Dog bites are the fifth most common type of personal injury case in San Antonio, and they are certainly one of the most emotionally loaded when it comes to pursuing a claim.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog bite attack, you deserve an attorney who will fight for you and ensure that you obtain the maximum possible compensation. Carabin Shaw has served personal injury victims in San Antonio for thirty years, and they are ready to support you as you pursue your claim.

We Fight for Your Compensation After a Dog Bite in San Antonio

Although dog bites in San Antonio are common, there is rarely a simple way to go about holding their owner liable. This is due, in part, to the laws surrounding dog bite aftermath and the fact that many dog owners will do what they can to protect their own animal, regardless of its tendency to bite. This means that, very often, the animal’s owner will try to lay blame on the victim by saying they provoked the attack, that they should have been aware that the dog was dangerous, etc.

Working with an experienced dog bite lawyer in San Antonio, like those at Carabin Shaw, will guarantee that you see the settlement you deserve after an attack.

Texas One Bite Rule

In San Antonio, it is the duty of the victim to prove that the animal’s owner knew it was generous to other people. If you were the first dog bite victim of this particular animal, the owner may argue that they had no previous knowledge of the dog’s violent tendencies. Finding an attorney with experience in dog bite injury cases is especially important in these cases, as proving the liability of the owner becomes more complicated.

Recoverable Costs in Dog Bite Claim

After a dog bite attack, you may be face-to-face with piling medical bills, missed wages, and other expensive costs that come with recovery from such an attack. You’re entitled to compensation for various costs associated with the attack, including

  • Medical expenses related to the attack, including psychological treatment
  • Compensation for pain
  • Loss of earning capacity, often a result of not being able to work in the period after an attack
  • Disfigurement, resulting in permanent scarring or restorative medical procedures and their associated costs
  • Physical impairment, especially if the impairment impacts your ability to do your job
