In Texas, a victim of a dog bite must be able to demonstrate the dog’s owner had reasonable knowledge that their dog was dangerous.
Dog Bite Injuries are Serious
Dog attacks can result in life-long scarring both physically and emotionally. When you, your child, or another loved one is attacked by a dog, you expect the physical injuries to take time to heal. But we are often unprepared for the emotional scarring which can occur including developing a life-long fear of dogs.
We Look at Prior History of Dogs
One of the first things Kathleen will do is find out if the dog who is responsible for an injury has any prior history of biting or attacking. This often involves speaking to law enforcement, animal control, or the veterinarian responsible for the dog’s care.
She will fight hard to hold the owner responsible for medical bills including immediate care necessary, procedures to minimize scarring, and even counseling to ensure victims can move forward without fear.
