We Can Help You Recover Compensation for Your Fort Worth Dog Bite Injuries
Dog bites are often more than minor annoyances. They can lead to serious injuries, infections, and medical complications. A bite may require you to undergo extensive medical care, including rabies shots and wound suturing. If the bite is deep enough or in certain locations of the body—such as the face—you may need reconstructive surgery. You may also have to deal with infections brought on by the bite. All of this care costs money, sometimes a prohibitive sum. The owner of the dog should be the one to pay, not you.
In addition to the medical bills and other financial costs associated with a dog bite—such as your time away from work and reduced future earning capacity—the responsible party should compensate you for the physical and emotional pain you have endured because of the attack.

Dog Bite Laws in Fort Worth
Under the Texas Health and Safety Code, dog owners may bear liability for injuries caused by their animals. In some cases, in addition to facing civil liability for bites or attacks, they may be charged with a crime. For example, if a dog owner knows their pet has vicious tendencies, but still lets them roam free without supervision or restraint, they may be charged with a crime if their animal attacks someone. Similarly, a pet owner can be guilty of a crime if they encourage an animal to attack an innocent person who is not threatening them.
When we evaluate your Fort Worth dog bite injury, we will look into whether the owner may be criminally liable for the bite incident. If they face criminal charges, it does not result in money in your pocket, but it can help strengthen the civil claim we may file against the dog owner. Even if the owner is not criminally liable, we may still win compensation from them, either through an out-of-court settlement or a jury verdict.
Our dog bite attorneys in Fort Worth have helped many clients recover settlements for their injuries and we want to help you too.
Our Fort Worth dog bite lawyers can pursue a settlement or award on your behalf. We will take on the dog owner, as well as their insurance company, seeing to it that they do not get away with paying you less than you deserve. To learn more, and to receive a free consultation, call us today.
