What to Do After A Dog Bite Injury

If you or a loved one have been bitten by a dog, it’s important to take these steps:

Identify the Dog and Its Owner

It’s vital to get the owner’s contact information, as well as the dog’s vaccination records.

Begin Medical Care

Don’t wait to begin administering medical care. Start with first aid at the scene of the incident, then visit your healthcare provider as soon as possible.

File A Report

Filing an official dog bite report is an important step in the legal process. Our office can help guide you through this step.

Document Your Experience

The more details you’re able to provide about your dog bit incident, the more it will support your claim.

Details you should record or keep copies of include:

  • Time & date of the incident
  • Owner’s contact information
  • Dog’s information & vaccination records
  • Medical bills & reports
  • Photographic evidence of your injuries

All of these items will help establish your case. Maintaining detailed records also helps minimize challenges to your testimony.

Dog Bite Laws in Texas

Dog bite cases in Texas can be complex. Our expert legal team is here to make the process simple and pursue justice for you with tenacity.

Negligent Owners

When dog owners ignore leash laws or hide their dog’s past aggressive behavior, they put everyone around them at risk. And you’re the one who ends up paying the price.

If you’ve been bitten by a dog due to the owner’s negligence, let Biggs & Greenslade help.

You Know The Dog’s Owner

You may feel conflicted if you’ve been bitten by a dog you know. You don’t want to hurt the dog or their owner, but you still deserve compensation.

The most common procedure for a dog bite claim in Texas is to file against the owner’s home or renter’s insurance agency. You can still pursue a fair settlement without placing someone you know in financial distress.

Call our office to get advice from an experienced dog bite lawyer today.

"One Bite Rule"

Texas operates under a law commonly known as the “One bite rule.”

If a dog hasn’t previously shown aggressive behaviors or bitten anyone in the past, it can be more difficult for a case to stick, even in spite of clear evidence.

At Biggs & Greenslade, we will work on your dog bite case with determination to ensure the dog’s owner is held responsible.

Pursuing Personal Injury Claims on Behalf of Your Child

Dog bite injuries can be especially traumatic and dangerous for children.

Children often are not physically capable of defending themselves against an attacking dog. They may also not be able to identify the red flags of a dangerous dog like an adult would.

As their parent or guardian, you are able to pursue a personal injury claim on behalf of your child.

Biggs & Greenslade will pay for your child to receive medical care right away, and we will ensure the final settlement covers emotional damages and future care as well.
