Have you or a loved one been a victim of a vicious dog bite attack in the Houston area? Dog bite laws vary from state to state and are complex. Only a personal injury lawyer experienced in the area of dog bites and their relevant laws has the information needed in order to defend your rights against dog bites and seek fair compensation.

Dog Bite Injuries

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 800,000 Americans seek medical attention each year for the treatment of dog bites. Approximately half of them require treatment in an emergency room and the majority of victims who suffer injuries are children ages 5-9. Almost two thirds of the injuries sustained by children are in the head and neck area. Other dog bite injuries include:

  • Puncture Wounds
  • Lacerations
  • Crushed Bones
  • Tissue Damage
  • Nerve Damage
  • Sprains

Being a victim of a dog bite attack, or even worse, having your child viciously attacked by a dog, can be devastating with serious lasting consequences. Medical attention must be sought out immediately followed by acquiring proper legal representation. You need someone who is knowledgeable in Texas dog bite laws and who has experience dealing with both dog bites and the various insurance details pertaining to dog bites.
