This is especially true in Texas where we lead the nation in Dog Bite Fatalities. Dog’s can attack without warning and for no apparent reason. Guest and Gray, P.C. has represented numerous dog bite victims in the Dallas, Forney, and Rockwall county areas and recovered top dollar for their injuries.
Establishing “Negligence” in a Dog Bite Case
In order to recover damages after a dog attack, the injured victim must show that the owner, aware of the dog’s aggressive tendencies, failed to use reasonable care to prevent the dog from harming someone. For instance, if the owner of a known aggressive dog regularly lets the dog out in the street or neighborhood, and that dog attacks someone, the homeowner will likely be liable under a negligence theory of recovery in Texas.
The negligence rule may also apply to other types of dog-related injuries. For instance, if a large dog knocks you down and you are injured, you may be able to recover damages if you can show that, “but for” the owner’s negligent failure to control the dog, the dog would not have been able to knock you down or injure you.
