What Is Dog Owner Negligence?

When a dog attacks and bites someone, the owner of the dog might be found negligent. A negligent dog owner is responsible and liable for the injuries caused by their dog. Each case is unique, and our San Antonio Dog Bite Injury Lawyers can help you understand your rights. Not all dog bites can be prevented, but owners are responsible for minimizing the chances of an attack.

Texas has something called the “one bite rule.” This essentially means that a dog owner gets one strike and isn’t usually held responsible for their dog’s first offense.

But there are situations where a dog owner might be liable for their dog’s “first bite”:

  • The dog was not correctly leashed in an area with leash laws
  • The dog was not contained within the owner’s property
  • The owner did not exercise reasonable control over their dog
  • The owner was aware of their dog’s violent tendencies but did not protect others
  • The dog was left alone with small children

Dog bite cases can be complex, and each situation is unique. Our San Antonio Dog Bite Injury Lawyers can help you understand your rights and options after a dog attack. If you were injured in a dog attack, call Thompson Law for a free evaluation today.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 43,215 people underwent reconstructive surgery after being bitten by a dog in 2019. Compared to other dog breeds responsible for attacks in the US, pit bull terriers had five times the rate of surgical intervention.

Our San Antonio Dog Bite injury lawyers can help if you were injured in a dog attack. We understand that many dog bite victims feel bad about filing a lawsuit because they know the dog owner personally. But it is important to remember that most dog bite cases get compensation directly from the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance.

Quality medical treatment is essential for dog bite victims. Not only can dog bites cause serious injuries, but they can also lead to dangerous infections if not properly treated. In some cases, reconstructive surgery or occupational therapy is required. These instances can generate a lot of medical bills, not to mention emotional trauma.

Thompson Law LLP was the first attorney I called after my auto accident, and I’m glad I did, because they really helped me walk through the process of my accident; from referring me to medical providers to therapy, to a 2nd opinion I requested for what was going with... me after a 1st diagnosis. They were very thorough in taking information regarding the accident, and I was able to send pics of my injuries, and damages of my vehicle effortlessly. Thompson Law stayed in contact with me concerning the case and settled very quickly, and really settled for more than I expected.Thank you to all who worked on my case. Scott Koelker, Adam Lippman, Raquel Aguilar, and Juanita Ayala. I really appreciate all you’ve done.-Sheila Talleyread more
