Not all states have the same laws governing personal injury claims, including dog bite claims. Texas abides by what is known as the “one bite rule,” which states that a dog’s owner can be strictly liable for any damages caused by an animal that is known to be dangerous or could be dangerous. If the dog doesn’t have a history of biting others, the injured individual will have to prove that the dog was aggressive in order to recover damages in their claim.
An individual can obtain compensation when they establish that the dog owner was negligent in handling their dog. To do this, the victim must prove the following:
This negligence rule in Texas doesn’t just apply to the injuries people get from bites – it can also apply to related injuries. One example is if the dog jumps on the victims and knocks them over, causing them to hit their head or suffer a neck injury. Another is if the dog stands on the victim and is heavy enough to cause crushing injuries.
