Dog Bites and Animal Injuries

Dog and animal bites can be traumatic for a victim – especially young victims.  While, perhaps seemingly innocuous, a dog or animal bite may result in long-term or permanent injury.

  • Infection
  • Permanent scarring or disfigurement
  • Psychological damage
  • Skin grafts
  • Stitches
  • Temporary or Permanent Nerve Damage

Suing a dog owner can be an arduous task.  In order to successfully sue and seek damages for a dog or animal bite and the resulting injury, the injured must prove that the individual sued owned and cared for the animal’s wellbeing.  The injured must then prove that the individual that owned the animal was negligent, either by failing to restrain or contain the animal.

Texas ranks third in the country for the most dog bite incidents.  One-third of all homeowner insurance policy claims in the country were from dog bites.  The dog breeds with the most vicious bites include pit bulls, Rottweilers, German shepherds, and Dobermans.  However, the dogs most likely to bite are actually Chihuahuas.  No matter how small the dog, the long-term effects of that bite are real and can involve serious medical damages to a small child.
