Guest and Gray, P.C. is committed to helping dog attack victims recover top dollar for their injuries. Dogs are often thought of as “man’s best friend”, but that is not always the case. 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.
