What to Do After A Dog Bite Injury

If you or a loved one have experienced a dog bite attack, do the following to care for yourself and begin building your case:

Get Information On The Dog and Its Owner

Getting the owner’s contact information is your first priority. You should also get information on the dog, including its vaccination info.

Seek Medical Care

Don’t delay your medical treatment. Visit the emergency room or your primary healthcare provider as soon as you can.

Ask your doctor or nurse for documentation of your treatment and your medical bills.

File A Report

Next, you should file an official dog bite report with your local authorities. We can help advise you on this step.

Document Your Experience

We know this can be a stressful time with lots of activity, but the more records you can keep of your experience, the stronger your case will be.

Do your best to keep track of the following information:

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

Clear notes and documentation helps to support your claim and reduce the chance for disputes.

Dog Bite Laws in Texas

Dog bite incidents in Texas can be complicated, but our experienced dog bite accident lawyers are here to handle the details and get the justice you deserve.

Negligent Owners

The majority of dog bite injuries are a result of the owner’s negligence. When they ignore their dog’s aggressive behaviors and fail to monitor them, their carelessness ends up hurting you.

Let Biggs & Greenslade support you if you’ve been the victim of a dog bite accident.

You Know The Dog’s Owner

The situation can be complex if you know the dog’s owner. There’s no mistake that you’ve been hurt, but you may be unsure how to proceed.

In these cases, the procedure is usually to file your claim against the owner’s home insurance agency. You can get the care you deserve without putting someone you know under financial strain.

Call Biggs & Greenslade to get expert counsel on your dog bite injury claim.

“One Bite Rule”

In Texas, if a dog hasn’t bitten anyone before, the owner is more likely to be protected from claims.

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 incidents are particularly dangerous for children.

Children often can’t defend themselves against an aggressive dog, and they may not know the signs an aggressive dog would display.

If your child has been injured by a dog bite, Texas law allows you to file a personal injury claim on their behalf.

Biggs & Greenslade will cover your child’s initial medical expenses so they can get the care they need. We’ll also make sure the final case settlement covers future medical care and bills too.
