Lawyers For Dog Bite Victims
A dog attack can result in disfiguring injuries and even death. Sadly, many victims of dog attacks are children. Innocent and trusting, they may approach a dog in a way that sparks a violent response.
Wyatt Law Firm provides aggressive representation for people throughout Texas and the nation, including the cities of San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Laredo and Corpus Christi.
Helping You Get Medical Care And Full Compensation
Our lawyers have a thorough understanding of Texas laws covering dog bites. We understand the many issues that need to be considered and how to get results in dog bite cases.
While our goal is always to obtain the best possible settlement or jury award for our clients, we go above and beyond. When representing you, we will work hard to help you get the compensation you need to recover to the fullest extent possible.
We will carefully examine your needs and seek compensation for medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses. For example, this could include the costs of primary medical care, scar revision, psychological counseling (especially appropriate for children) and other necessary care and services.
Dog Bite Lawsuits In Texas
When it comes to dog bite litigation, Texas follows the “strict liability” principle. This means that absent any complicating factors, the dog’s owner (in reality, the owner’s insurance company) must bear responsibility for the harm caused by a dog attack. The strict liability principle makes it somewhat easier for a dog bite victim to recover compensation, though there are still many hurdles to overcome.
Generally speaking, damages in a dog bite case will be paid by the dog owner’s insurance company, not the dog owner. If you were injured by the dog of a family member, friend, or a neighbor, you should not hesitate to seek compensation. Our focus will be on obtaining compensation from the insurance company, not your relative, friend or neighbor.
