Houston Dog Bite Lawyer

Counsel from a Seasoned Personal Injury Attorney

Pets are a cherished part of so many individuals' and families' lives that sometimes it's hard to believe that they are still animals with instincts. However, legally speaking, pets are property of their owners and those owners are responsible for anything the pet does. Under personal injury law, owners are responsible for injuries caused by their pets.

As with any animal attack, dog bites can be frightening and can cause harm to anyone, even children. If these bites are inflicted by a dog whose owner has been negligent in some way, then they can be held responsible for any pain, suffering, and any financial hardships you've sustained due to the injury. At The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C., we've recovered substantial results for our clients with our sharp, assured personal injury counsel. Our Houston personal injury attorneys are ready to provide the same service to you and your dog bite claim today.

What Should I Do If I'm Bitten by a Dog?

Dog attacks can cause serious injury. If you've been attacked there are a number of steps you can take not just to ensure your health and safety, but secure the information needed to pursue any potential legal action.

If you bitten by a dog, you should:

  • Seek medical attention. This includes any necessary inoculations.
  • Photograph any of the injuries caused by the dog.
  • If you don't know the owner of the dog, find out.
  • Consult a skilled Houston personal injury lawyer about the attack.

We understand that some clients may be hesitant to move forward with a dog bite injury claim, especially if the dog owner is a friend, relative or a neighbor. You should know that most homeowners' or rental insurance policies cover liability for dog bites, so the dog owner will not necessarily have to pay for the damages out of pocket. We can also assess your situation to determine other possible sources of compensation available to you.
