San Antonio Dog Bite Lawyers

Personal Injury Attorneys Fighting for Your Fair Compensation

Dogs are fondly known as man's best friend, but they are also still animals, which means they still have animalistic tendencies despite domestication. As such, dog owners are required to take the necessary precautions to protect others from their dogs, especially children. Small children are especially susceptible to dog bites and can suffer the most damage. Our team of dog bite lawyers in San Antonio understands that these injuries can be extremely painful and have lasting effects. If you believe your or your child’s injuries resulted from a negligent dog owner, we can help.

Am I Elidgible for Financial Compensation After a Dog Bite?

Most dog bite attacks are preventable and occur due to owner negligence, such as an owner who fails to keep their dog on a leash. Dog bite cases are complex and often difficult to prove liability, which is why having one of our dog bite lawyers in San Antonio on your side is essential.

To hold a dog owner liable, we must be able to prove:

  • The dog owner behaved negligently
  • The dog owner knew the dog had violent tendencies
  • You had a right to be on the property where you were bitten

What Legal Action Should I Take If I Get Bitten by a Dog?

When you have been bitten by a dog, you need to quickly take some steps of action. As soon as you have immediately contacted emergency services and the police and tried to stop any major sources of bleeding and pain, identify both the dog and the owner. Get all names, numbers, and addresses of everyone who is involved, witnesses included.

You will also need proof of rabies vaccinations, or you might have to pay for these extremely expensive shots yourself. Take as many pictures as possible, not only of yourself and the dog in question, but the area location as well. After your treatment, quickly file a dog bite report to leave a paper trail of the incident and keep the case documented and then contact our law firm. The more information you can gather about the dog’s history, the more quickly we can help you get recompense.

How Long After a Dog Bite Can You Sue?

It is crucial to remember that in the state of Texas, there is a statute of limitations for different types of lawsuits. When it comes to a dog bite case, which is one type of personal injury lawsuit in the civil court system, you get exactly two years to file this case. The time starts ticking the moment you have been bitten. This means that if you delay filing past two years, your case will just get dismissed without ever being heard in court. Make sure you keep a careful account of when this two-year deadline started and when it will end, and make sure to file your lawsuit far in advance of that ending date.

Supportive San Antonio Personal Injury Lawyers

If you or your child have been attacked and injured by a dog, you must act quickly to seek representation. The dog owner or their insurance company may offer you a settlement to get the case to go away, but they do not have your best interest in mind. These incidents often cause injuries that require significant medical care and even cosmetic surgery. Our dog bite attorneys in San Antonio believe that you deserve maximum monetary compensation while protecting your rights and making the experience as stress-free as possible.
