TEXAS DOG BITE LAWS
Texas does not have a civil statute exclusively dedicated to dog bite accidents. Instead, Texas courts have assumed the responsibility of setting forth dog bite laws in the Lone Star State.
Texas courts adhere to the “one-bite rule” when it comes to dog bite accidents. The rule imposes a negligence standard. This means that to recover damages for a dog bite, a dog bite victim must establish that the dog’s owner was either:
- Aware that the dog had bitten someone before, or
- Had acted aggressively in the past, or
- Was negligent in controlling the dog or preventing the accident from occurring.
A consultation with an experienced Zinda dog bite lawyer may provide additional insight into Texas dog bite laws.
