Dog Bite Laws in Texas

Dog bite accidents in Texas can sometimes be complex, but our personal injury attorneys are highly experienced and will guide you through your claim process.

Negligent Owners

Most dog bite injuries happen due to the owner’s negligence. Ignoring or hiding their dog’s previous aggressive behaviors puts everyone around them at risk.

If you’ve been the victim of a dog bite incident, let Biggs & Greenslade help you get justice.

You Know The Dog’s Owner

If you know the dog’s owner, it can create a difficult situation. You deserve compensation and care for your injuries, but you don’t want the owner or their dog to suffer as a result.

The process for those cases is usually to file your personal injury claim against the owner’s rental or home insurance agency. You can work toward getting compensation without putting pressure on someone you know.

Call our office to get expert guidance on your claim from a dog bite injury lawyer.

“One Bite Rule”

Texas operates under the “one bite rule,” meaning that it can be more difficult to make a claim against a dog who hasn’t attacked anyone previously.

Biggs & Greenslade is committed to pursuing justice and responsibility in your dog bite injury claim.

Biggs & Greenslade will pay for their initial medical bills so they can get treatment immediately. We’ll ensure that your claim settlement covers those medical expenses, as well as any future medical care they need.
