What to Do After A Dog Bite Injury

If you or a loved one have been bitten by a dog, it’s crucial to know these steps and follow them precisely:

Identify the Dog and Its Owner

Just like in any accident, it’s vital to get contact information. Obtain the owner’s contact information and acquire the dog’s vaccination records. Even if the owner says the dog is up to date on vaccinations, get a copy of the records.

Begin to administer medical care immediately. Start with first aid while at the scene, then visit your healthcare provider as soon as you’re able.

File A Report

You absolutely must file a report of the incident. If you’re unsure how, our office will assist you in filing.

Document Your Experience

The more details you can provide about the attack, the more it will support your claim. Write down as much as you can as soon as you can. The quicker you can write down what happened, the less likely you are to forget in the heat of the moment.

Details you should record or keep copies of include:

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

All of these items are important in establishing a solid case. Maintaining detailed records also helps minimize challenges to your testimony.

Dog Bite Laws in Texas

You probably don’t know the intricacies of dog bite laws in Texas, and now isn’t the time for you to have to learn them. Our team will guide you through the whole process and explain the relevant particulars of your case.

Negligent Owners

When dog owners ignore leash laws or hide their dog’s past aggressive behavior, they endanger everyone. You’ve paid the price for their negligence, so you deserve compensation.

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

You Know The Dog’s Owner

It’s incredibly tough when you’re bitten by a dog whom you know. You don’t want to hurt the dog, nor do you want to cause their owner harm, but you’re still owed 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. This allows you to pursue adequate compensation without bankrupting someone you know.

"One Bite Rule"

Texas operates under a law commonly known as the “One Bite Rule.”

If a dog hasn’t previously bitten anyone in the past, it can be challenging to get the case to stick. It can be especially difficult if the dog doesn’t have a history of aggression. Still, you deserve restitution.

At Biggs & Greenslade, we’ll take on your dog bite case with tenacity and ensure the dog’s owner will be held responsible.

Pursuing Personal Injury Claims on Behalf of Your Child

Dog attacks can be exceptionally traumatic and dangerous for children. While already dangerous for adults, children are at even greater risk of serious injury.

Children often are unable to defend themselves against the attacking dog. They may also not be able to identify aggressive canine behavior the way adults can.

As their parent or guardian, you are well within your rights to pursue a personal injury claim on your child’s behalf.

Biggs & Greenslade will pay for your child to get proper medical attention right away. We will also ensure that the final settlement covers emotional damages, along with future care, as well.
