Common Causes and Examples

Many neighborhoods in the Dallas area are home to residents who have dogs as pets. While dogs can provide positive companionship, they can also become a hazard if they are not properly monitored and cared for. A dog owner is responsible for the actions of their pet and can be sued for the damages inflicted in a canine attack case.

In such a case, it is important to get the name, address, and phone number of any witness to the attack as well as the dog owner’s details. Medical attention is also a primary concern, as without treatment it is possible that serious infections could ensue.

There are many different causes of dog bite attacks. Common causes include:

• Not Feeling Well: If a dog is in a bad mood, it might bite a person even if that is not their usual behavior. Similarly, if a dog is sick, it might be more easily aggravated.

• Playing: When a dog is playing, it might bite a person thinking that it is fun, but it can still cause injury to the person. Dogs are also more likely to bite after engaging in more aggressive activities like tug-of-war or wrestling with other dogs. The dog might also be wound up after aggressive play like tug-of-war or wrestling and is more likely to bite.

• Naturally Aggressive Dog Breeds: Some dog breeds such as Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, German Shepherds, Pit Bulls, and Siberian Huskies are considered inherently dangerous by some homeowners’ insurances. These insurance companies may refuse to cover injuries caused by these breeds.

• Defense: A dog may bite a person when it feels threatened and is trying to defend itself, its territory, food, or puppies. The dog might feel threatened because a stranger is encroaching on its territory, is trying to take something away from the dog, or because it is in an unfamiliar environment.

It is important to remember that although naturally aggressive dog breeds are considered more likely to attack, sometimes non-aggressive breeds can attack someone or cause hazard. This is especially true for large dogs that may be more likely to knock someone over or accidentally trip them.

If you have been injured by a dog, contact Zinda Law Group today. Our team has ample experience in dog bite cases, and we can help investigate your unique claim, including how and why the attack may have happened.


What to Do After a Dog Bite Injury Accident?

Although each case is different, there are certain steps you should take following almost any dog bite or animal attack. Following these steps can help keep you safe and maintain your future legal claim.

1. Seek Medical Attention

After any dog bite it is important to seek medical attention, as even small ones can lead to infections. Further, having a medical record showing the full extent of your injuries will be important for determining compensation.

2. Document the Incident

Be sure to get the contact information of the dog’s owner and anyone who witnessed the attack, including their names, phone numbers, and email information, as your attorney will likely need to contact them in the future. This information should also include the dog’s vaccination history. You should also take pictures of any wounds you sustained (before and after they are treated), of any dog involved, and of the environment in which the attack occurred. Filing a report with animal control may be important as well. Be sure to get and maintain any official reports as they may come in handy for your future legal claim.

3. Contact a Dog Bite Lawyer

You should also find an attorney with extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with insurance claims and lawsuits related to animal attacks. Laws can differ from state to state and even within a state. A dog bite attorney will know the laws of the local area and may be able to help you obtain compensation. At Zinda Law Group, our Dallas dog bite lawyers have helped countless animal attack victims get their lives back on track, and we may be able to help you as well.

Contact Zinda Law Group today if you have been injured by an animal or bitten by a dog. Our team can help walk you through each step of the legal claim and help you pursue the maximum amount of compensation available for your injuries.

I had the best experience with the Zinda law Group! Shivangi Was the the most professional and caring attorney anyone could ask for! She did everything in a timely matter and answered all the questions I could ever think of. Her paralegal, Danielle was always there for me throughout the entire process. She worked around my schedule and was very consistent about helping me in any way she could. If I could give this team 6 stars I would!! I highly recommend to anyone looking for the best team!
I had the privilege of working with Zinda Law Group recently and was thoroughly impressed with the level of service and support they provided. When we began, I had reservations about the likelihood of reaching a settlement, but the team's professionalism, intelligence, and dedication quickly put those doubts to rest. They went above and beyond to ensure that I was informed and comfortable throughout the process, and their hard work and strong advocacy ultimately led to a successful outcome. I cannot thank Zinda Law Group and their staff enough for their exceptional service and support, and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance. Their commitment to their clients and their willingness to fight for what's right truly sets them apart. In short, I give them a rating of five stars for their outstanding work.
Zinda Law Group is amazing! My husband was in an accident and they made the process super easy and hassle free. They took care of everything, we are so appreciative for them! They exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be telling everyone we know about them. Thank you Zinda Law for everything!
Zinda Law Group is an amazing firm! My case was not without its challenges, but they handled it all in stride. They kept me up to date, kept me informed every step of the way, and ensured I understood the process and all of my options. Burgess, Ryan and their extremely capable staff of Paralegals made a very challenging process as painless as possible. They were kind, compassionate, and patient, and just a real pleasure to work with. I would, and will, recommend them highly to anyone needing an attorney.

Zinda law group made me feel comfortable and I trusted them to fight for me. The trust was well placed! Thank Yous, I appreciate all that Yous done for me and my family!!
I’ve had such a great experience with Zinda law group! They’ve handled everything relatively quickly and professionally. They really have made my life a lot easier. I recommend anyone dealing with auto accidents (or similarly) to Zinda Law group.I felt I was very important to them and that my feelings and thoughts were validated. They treated me with much care and respect, not like “just another client”. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.
I truly recommend Zinda law group they truly helped me and my family during such a hard hard time. Very accommodating they work extremely hard to make sure that you are compensated from start to finish they made it happen and made a rough time a lot smoother than I could of ever imagined thank you all for everything if you are looking for a lawyer that goes above beyond look no further Michael will get you taken care of!
Zinda Law did an excellent job for us from start to finish. They communicated clearly and their staff was great! My son Nic was in a car accident and had an injury to his eye. Zinda Law took care of everything start to finish and obtained the maximum amount possible from insurance for his injury.
I am so glad I called Zinda law group. being hit by a drink driver was the worst experience of my life physically and emotionally. As soon as I reached out they got the ball rolling with all my medical needs. They were in contact with all of my appointments and made my recovery as smooth as possible. I would definitely without a doubt recommend them. A huge shout out to Shivangi for taking over and fighting for what my family and I deserved.
My experience with Zinda Law Group has been OUTSTANDING! Big shoutout to Joe Caputo and his team!I was the passenger in a terrible car accident that left me needing medical attention. The person at faults insurance company reassured me that my medical bills would be taken care of. However, that was not the case. I started receiving multiple calls from debt collectors, and bill after bill by mail. The driver’s insurance company no longer returned my calls, and emails went unanswered. I was so stressed and over my head with how to handle the situation. It was time to call the pros! As soon as I made the call to Zinda Law Group, Joe and his team I were on it! I no longer received calls from debt collectors, so I knew action was taken immediately. I was informed every step of the way, and every call/email was answered. Had I called sooner, I would have never gone through all that stress. I was treated like a friend, not just a client.Thank you Zinda Law Group!
I hired Zinda for a crazy situation involving an 18 wheeler where an object flew off a trailer and blasted through my windshield.I reached out to Zinda and spoke with Michael Cupero, my attorney at Zinda, after the accident once I realized this is affecting my day to day life in a significant way (PTSD from a "Final Destination" type of incident) and Michael was nothing short of fantastic through the entire process.The Zinda team, including Michael and Mary-Catherine Holt and several others, guided me through the entire process from initial settlement offers, filing the lawsuit, depositions, the whole 9.They listened to my concerns, provided clarity and perspective when needed, and not once did I feel that my best interest was not at the forefront of their actions and behavior through my experience as a client.Thank you Michael, Mary-Catherine and Zinda!If you want a team that will treat you with professionalism, respect, and understanding then do yourself a favor and reach out to Zinda!
Extremely professional and communicative . They explained the process as we went along and made it very clear weighting pros and cons. They understood my pain and my worries but kept their expertise always on the top of things finding elements for me to win my case. I am thankful to have had Zinda Law Group to support me during those two years as it finalized and I can keep on living.
My experience with Zinda law group has been wonderful from start to finish. Natasha and Emily explained everything very well and answered any questions I had, communicated well throughout the whole process , and handled the case very professionally, they worked very hard on my case I would definitely highly recommend to friends and family.
I found myself in a situation where I needed legal representation. After looking over reviews in the area, I decided to contact Natasha at Zinda law group in the hopes that she could represent me . Natasha put me at ease with her responsiveness and her ability to accommodate my last minute needs. I had no idea what to expect. It felt like a wave of relief knowing that you're working with a professional that knows what she's doing, and knows how to get things done quickly and efficiently. I appreciate the time and attention that Natasha put into my case. I hope I won't be needing their services again in the future, but I would absolutely contact them again if I do. Thanks again
I am very satisfied with the service and the outcome of my case.Since the first phone call, and every step of the way until the end, Zinda Law was on top of every detail pertaining to my auto accident case.The case is now closed, and looking back, they made every step of the process easy and manageable. They were very thorough in explaining the different scenarios, and extremely transparent with all the possible outcomes.Thank you to every person who aided in the success of my case, all of whom were exceptional in their tasks and working as a team.
The Zinda Law Group was outstanding in helping me with my aunts case. My two Attorneys Neil and Shivangi were very compassionate, kind, eager to help, and really listen carefully and attentively to my case about my aunt. My aunt got hit by a driver while crossing the street and killed. I went after the guys insurance; although, this doesn't bring back my aunt, but allows for this not to happen to other people like this in her case. These attorneys worked very hard and efficiently to bring the justice that they saw fit. When I had a question they explained in terms I understood and not above and beyond me. I appreciate it when people can come down to my level and not intimidate and use trepidation on someone in feeling like they are the fly while they're the spider waiting for the right moment for the fly to walk into its web.Neil and Shivangi always whenever they called asked me how I was at the beginning of our conversations and is there anything I needed at the end of each call. Each call they made to me, was made very professional, personable and felt heart felt as if you were part of the family. At the end of each subject matter they always asked, "Do you have any questions for me before we go to the next thing we need to talk about?" They always wanted to make sure I understood everything before the next item we needed to talk about. These guys really are good and want to please the client anyway they can I thought; when I first started talking to them. I give them above and beyond a 5-Star rating if there was such a thing. I Highly Recommend The Zinda Law Group to Anyone who needs them. This is what I give them if I could!!💯💯💯💯💯 and👍👍👍👍👍 and⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐❗❗❗THANK YOU TO NEIL, SHIVANGI, MARA AND TO EVERYONE AT THE ZINDA LAW GROUP WHO WORKED ON MY CASE!! I APPRECIATE YOU ALL!
I would like to recognize a fantastic attorney named Joe Caputo from Zinda Law Group. I was involved in an auto accident that had many complicated moving parts that were hard to navigate and understand as a victim. Joe was so gracious and spent quality time explaining what courses of action I needed to take as a victim to protect myself. Joe was also diligent in following up with me regarding my case and provided guides and checklists that were extremely helpful to keep things organized and moving. Joe was always readily available for my questions and responded promptly. Joe Caputo's excellent counsel ensured I protected myself when dealing with the opposing insurance company and ensured the best possible outcome for my case. Joe's expertise in personal injury lawsuits helped alleviate the stress and anxiety that follows the aftermath of an auto accident. Thanks again Joe! You are truly an amazing, kind person and attorney!
Zinda Law was incredibly amazing. I had the pleasure of working with Michael and his incredibly hard working team after my wreck in November. They went above and beyond keeping up with my health, bills, insurance companies, all that fun stuff I had no time for. After what felt like such a short amount of time, they were able to win every last penny from the "bad guys" insurance (loved that term). I couldn't happier, and even though I went through something traumatic, it was still the best experience I could have ever asked for. Thank you Michael and everyone that helped with my case, yall are the best!!
My attorney was Christina , she and her team gave me the best outcome for my case .I am giving an honesty review at first I was very upset because I kept getting moved around and I never knew who I was talking to because they switch attorneys and kept changing my paralegals.. I was going to go with another law firm but Christina helped me with my case from then on out and she worked around my schedule to talk to me which I appreciate. Also my last law firm took 30 percent, and this one took 33 percent which I wasn’t to happy so just a heads up. Overall I rate this 4 stars cause I’m just happy the case is over with and I get to go back to my life.Update: I just received another call from my attorney and they have worked to negotiate my case with the billing and have put more money in my pocket. All the money that I had spent while working on the case has came back to me. I can fully move on and say that I have gain every penny that was lose during those hard times. I’m so happy and thankful to Zinda law group!!!!!!
Zinda Law Group did an excellent job with my case. The staff was super friendly and super effective as far as communicating with me throughout the entire case. I highly recommend Zinda Law Group for your next case and for any of your future cases. 5 Stars across the board thank you so much for everything!
Joh Harper, Priyonka Bhikha, and the rest of the team gave my case a quick and satisfactory conclusion. The attorney, Mr. Harper did an absolutely amazing job keeping me on the same page as far as the case goes. Honestly, if anybody is hurt in a car wreck or another personal injury case, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEAK TO THEM.
I was in a motor vehicle collision about two years ago. From the minute I picked up the phone to speak with a representative to the case finally settling, it was a great experience. I worked with Burgess Williams and his team (Kathy, Ryan, and Linda) throughout the process. They were all very professional and helpful when I needed them the most.
Great Firm. I was in motorcycle accident- T-boned at a full stop with my daughter riding on back. Zinda's team was instantly responsive. Christina was very compassionate, organized and scheduled time before every legal event to discuss goals and overview. The process was 2 years but during that time the lawyers and staff (John and Shane were also great) were always available and understanding. The team is focused on doing what is right and by the book. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who is suffering from a motorcycle accident.
Jason Aldridge and his paralegal Mara did an absolutely amazing job on my case. They were very responsive to all emails, calls and even texts. They treated me with dignity and respect from start to finish. I never once felt like my case was at the back of the list or anything. Not only did they explain and walked me through everything, they got me the help I needed and a final outcome over what I had expected. I would highly recommend this law firm, Jason and Mara to anyone seeking legal assistance.
Highly Recommended-100% Satisfied!.From the initial phone call I felt confident I chose the right firm. They explained the process and I was always in the loop, even when we were at a stand still. Very grateful I was quickly referred to them by a friend who had a similar case. Both of us are happy with the end result. Thank you!
My team of lawyer were very professional and communicated extremely clearly. They kept me updated on their status and did not make me worry at all about my situation. They explained everything to me very well and put things into simple terms for my understanding. I am very satisfied with their performance.
I would recommend them to anyone that's been involved in an accident and feels skeptical in engaging an attorney.When one gets into an accident, you're traumatized, confused, angry and helpless.That was me last year, getting all kinds of advice becomes your next norm, to use or not to use an attorney.I was in so much pain from my injuries but at the same time knew I had to act fast.I called Zinda Law Group for consultation, they took my case seriously and treated me with respect, they were very professional and understanding.Elizabeth, kudos to you, you're true to your word, Integrity should be your last name.Jason Aldridge my attorney went to work immediately, he assured me that all be well and I should concentrate on my healing and he will do the rest. Thank your Sir, You did just that.His team, Mara, Zuleyma and Andrew, they all become my support system, so professional and lots of respect in each and everyphone call or email. Thank you guys.I would recommend anyone to use Zinda Law Group.
I honestly loved not dealing with the hospital bills while I was recuperating. It gave me peace of mind going through this process and Zinda took care of everything. They found awesome health providers for me and haven't had to worry about anything while they've been taking my case. I've been well informed, communicated with, responded to and understood by Zinda. They have been efficient and effective while working on my case and I'm so glad I choose to go with this law firm.
When I was injured in a car accident in March of 2020 the insurance companies were not concerned with my well being. I called Zinda Law group & spoke with Reagan, who went over my concerns & later had Jono contact me. After reviewing my information with Jono my case was immediately put in motion. I worked mainly with Sam Thomas who truly was a blessing to me, he was very supportive & genuinely concerned with my well being, everything wasn't simply about the case it was about me being healed & getting the proper treatment that I needed. Sam was also emotionally supportive when I went through several losses in my family & is a great friend. In all everyone was extremely supportive & all worked for me which was quite a different legal experience for me from Law groups in my past. I was well supported, always informed, treated with respect & made the priority in all decisions. Zinda Law Group made sure I was compensated completely & that I didn't have financial stresses over hospital bills after all was said & done. Sam, Katrina, Mary Catherine, Reagan & Jono I just want to thank you & all of Zinda for the incredible experience & the wonderful caring people that you all are, you are truly Golden in your field.
I am so glad I got in touch with Zinda! My car accident occurred just 4 days prior to moving, during the busiest week of the year at my job, and just a week before the quarantine was declared a new reality for all of us. Everyone at Zinda remained persistent, supportive, and most of all advocated for me throughout such a chaotic time. I’ll always be grateful for the care they took to make sure my health and well-being were taken care of. So super grateful to know that a split second mistake someone else made doesn’t have to dictate my life. Thanks!
My experience with Zinda Law Group was better than expected. After an accident that totalled my car, I reached out and was paired with a wonderful attorney. She communicated frequently and responded to my calls and texts in a timely manner. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions. I was kept in the loop during every step of the process. I would call Zinda Law if I ever need this type of support again.
I had an excellent experience working with the attorneys at Zinda Law Group! They were knowledgeable, professional and patient. They walked me through every step of the long process of getting treatment after my car wreck and kept me updated with timeframes and next steps. I would absolutely recommend anyone working with them!
I was referred here by a family member. Our lawyer jason and his team did and amazing job. They kept me updated in everything made sure I understood what was going on. My son was hit by a van in the hospital jason came right over. He's awesome so much down to earth straight forward. I would recommend him and his firm to everyone and I have thank you zinda but most of all thank you Jason for being there for us for being a friend
Zinda Law Group was recommended to me from another satisfied client and I certainly received excellent service. The attorneys and staff are very proactive with communication and I knew every step of the way what was happening on my case. I never felt pressured with decision making and they went above & beyond to answer questions with satifactory explanations. This is a very professional group of attorneys & support staff. In addition, they were willing to meet me at a location more convenient for me. I appreciated their concern for my time.
Could not speak highly enough of the firm. I was involved in my first accident and thankfully had Zinda Law Group supporting me through the scary time. Jono took care of me every step of the way. He made me feel like I was a priority through the entire process. A big thank you to Jono and the rest of the Zinda crew!

How Does a Dog Bite Case Work?

At this point, you may be wondering how a dog bite case actually works. There are several elements to a dog bite claim and steps to take to determine liability and seek compensation. The elements of a dog bite case generally include:

1. Speaking with an Attorney

Finding an experienced dog bite lawyer can make the process must less stressful and costly. If you have been injured by a dog, you should contact a lawyer before proceeding. The right attorney can investigate your case and guide you through each step of the legal process, from the initial filing to the final judgment.

2. Investigation

The attorneys, any involved insurance companies, and claims adjusters will investigate your claim to evaluate the damage suffered. They may consider how the event occurred, where it occurred, whether it was preventable, and the costs that you have incurred or will incur in the future.

For dog attacks, Texas has what is called a “One-Bite Rule.” For a person to be liable for an attack, the victim must prove that the dog owner knew that their dog was a danger to others and was capable of inflicting damage.

A person may also be liable for a dog bite or attack if they acted negligently. This applies when the person was negligent or careless by failing to maintain reasonable control of their dog. For example, if a state or local law requires dogs to be leashed, and an owner’s dog is not leashed and bites someone, the owner may be considered negligent.
An experienced attorney can help investigate your case and determine liability.

3. Settlement

Most claims are settled before reaching trial. Before a case can be settled, it is important to know what your case is worth. It can take a long time to achieve a fair settlement. You lawyer can help you decide if and when to settle your case and can deal with insurance companies on your behalf. Insurance companies will often attempt to offer you a lowball offer in the hopes you will accept it without counteroffering. The right attorney can help speak to insurance adjusters to negotiate on your behalf and help you pursue the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

4. Trial

In the unlikely event that your case goes to trial, the judge will conduct the fact-finding by listening to testimony by witnesses and reviewing relevant documents and exhibits. Going to trial can be very costly and time consuming, although on some occasions it is the best choice. Our team has extensive trial experience in a wide array of personal injury cases, including dog bite attacks.
If you have any other questions regarding how a dog bite case works, contact Zinda Law Group as soon as possible. We can help explain each detail and guide you through every step.

Who Can Be Sued?

There are several potential parties who may be liable in the event of a dog bite. Determining the at-fault party can be done by your lawyer and will depend on the circumstances surrounding the dog bite. Potentially liable parties include the following:

• The Dog’s Owner

More than likely, it is the dog’s owner who is liable. If the owner acted negligently, they may be found at-fault. This may be true even if the dog owner was not present at the time of the accident.
Additionally, dog owners have certain duties and responsibilities when they are in public with their dog. These legal duties vary by state and even city, so it is important to consult your lawyer.

General duties of dog owners include taking reasonable care to restrain their dog from attacking. If a dog owner fails to properly maintain the dog on their property with a leash or fence, he or she may be held liable. An owner’s legal duties may also include keeping their dog up to date on vaccinations. If the dog has rabies and attacks someone because of it, for example, the owner may be liable.

• The Dog’s Caretaker at the Time of the Incident

The caretaker or walker of the dog has a duty to stop the dog from biting or attacking people. If they were negligent, they may be liable.

• Owners and Operators of the Location Where the Dog Bite Occurred

Owners and operators of premises have a duty to maintain a safe environment. If they breached that duty and a dog bit or attacked someone as a result, the landowner or operator may be liable.
If you have been bitten by a dog and are unsure of who to sue, contact Zinda Law Group today. We can help investigate your case, determine who was at fault, and help you pursue the maximum amount of compensation available for your medical injuries, emotional suffering, and more.

What Damages Can Be Recovered?

You may also be wondering what kind of compensation you may be able to receive for your physical and emotional damages. There are 3 main kinds of damages that a plaintiff may seek from a dog bite claim. These include:

• Economic Damages

Economic damages are losses that can be calculated in terms or dollars and cents with reasonable precision. These damages are meant to compensate the victim for their actual, measurable losses. Examples of economic damages may include medical expenses and lost earnings.

Medical expenses generally make up a large percentage of recoverable economic damages. This may include emergency room visits, ambulance or helicopter transportation, prescription drug costs, surgery expenses, rehabilitation of therapy expenses, and any other medical expenses incurred as a result of the dog bite.

Additionally, if you had to take off work due to injuries from the bite, you may recover for past and future lost wages. You may also be able to recover from lost business opportunities as a result of the injuries you suffered.

• Non-Economic (Intangible) Damages

Non-economic, or intangible, damages are usually given to compensate for any psychological harm. You may be able to receive compensation for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, embarrassment and humiliation, and loss of companionship.

Non-economic damages are not as easy to calculate when compared to economic damages. This means that they are highly subjective and will depend on the facts of your case.

• Punitive Damages

Punitive damages, also known as exemplary damages, are designed to punish the defendant in cases of serious wrongdoing and to deter others from behaving in a similar manner. For example, if the dog owner was inciting the dog to attack, punitive damages may be awarded. Punitive damages are less common than economic and non-economic damages and should not be expected from every case.

Contact Zinda Law Group today if you have any other questions regarding what kind of damages you may be able to receive after your dog bite case. We can help evaluate your claim and determine what your case may be worth.

What Is the Statute of Limitations?

After an accident occurs, the plaintiff has a limited time to file a lawsuit. This time limit is called the “statute of limitations”, and it will vary from case to case and state to state. Thus, it is important to talk to an attorney in your state as soon as possible following your accident. Failure to file your case on time may result in you being barred from receiving any kind of compensation.

In Dallas, the statute of limitations is generally 2 years from the date of the dog attack. This means if you were attacked by a dog and suffered injury on January 1, 2023, you will generally have until January 1, 2025, to file your claim.

After being involved in a dog bite or animal attack, contact Zinda Law Group as soon as possible. We can help investigate your case and file your claim within the statute of limitations.
