Dog Bite Lawyers Dallas
Animal attacks and dog bite cases are some of the most heart-breaking kinds of cases in Dallas. Many times, it is children who are attacked by animals, and permanent scarring and terrible injuries, and even death, can result. The owners of the dog often believe that their dog is friendly, and a part of the family, so they are often in denial that their dog could bite and attack a person with no provocation. In fact, teasing or provoking a dog is a defense to a dog bite case. In Texas, more than 43% of households have a dog.
Dogs Trained To Be Aggressive
Many breeds of dogs are large and powerful, and sometimes, owners train them to be aggressive. A large dog can greatly harm or even kill and a grown man. It does not take much to realize that a child, being smaller and less able to defend himself or herself from a dog attack or animal bite, is in grave danger when a dog is in aggressive pursuit.
The Injuries Can Be Devastating
Dog bites can result in some of the most serious, permanent (and often, catastrophic) injuries we see in our Dallas Law Practice. Because of the high cost of necessary medical treatment, and the limits of insurance policies that cover many homeowners and dogs for these claims. The insurance companies hire aggressive defense attorneys and these kinds of cases can turn into a real fight. You would be wrong to assume that anyone’s insurance company or lawyer is going to take it easy on you, especially if your case involves a terrible, permanent scar.
For your claim, we want to recover: Compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses – past and future, possible loss of income due to the injuries, as well as punitive damages.
Early Investigation Can Be The Key To Protecting Your Claim To Recover For A Dog Bite

Identifying all responsible parties and their insurance coverage, the dog owner or who was keeping the dog or other animal at the time of the attack, and getting a good understanding as to whether the dog or animal was provoked to attack, are some of the most important first steps you can take if you or a loved one has been injured in an animal attack or dog bite.
Any time you are dealing with an insurance company for a dog bite/animal attack case, you must understand that you are dealing with people who spend every waking hour trying to beat injured people out of their fair settlement for their injuries.
