What Can Be Compensated for in a Dog Bite Claim in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area?

The types of compensation you can recover for a dog bite injury vary widely depending on the nature of the attack, the severity of your injuries, and specifically how your injuries affect you from the time of the attack for the rest of your life. Some of the types of damages available to dog bite victims in Texas include:

  • Medical Care Expenses

    Medical care for dog bite victims can be significant. From broken bones to nerve damage, and puncture wounds and infections, dogs can cause serious injuries. Dog bite victim lawsuits can cover all the of the costs associated with a dog bite, including

    • Emergency room / urgent care visits
    • Hospitalization
    • Physical therapy
    • Reconstructive surgery/skin grafts
    • Cosmetic dentistry
    • Future medical care
    • Medications
    • Medical equipment

    Getting medical care (and completing recommended follow-up medical care) is essential for dog bite victims. Delaying or skipping medical treatment can have an adverse effect on your ability to recover compensation later.

  • Lost Earnings

    If your injuries force you to miss work, or you need to take off time to care for your child who was bitten by a dog, you may recover compensation for your salary or hourly wages. In extreme cases where your injuries will prevent you from ever working again, or you will need to work in a reduced capacity, compensation may be calculated for anticipated future lifetime earnings, which may be substantial.

  • Pain and Suffering

    Pain and suffering damages, sometimes called non-economic damages, compensate Texas dog bite victims for the physical pain and emotional suffering they suffer:

    Physical pain: Dog bites often cause painful injuries that unfortunately remain long after the initial wound heals. When injuries cause lasting damage or pain, a personal injury claim can pursue compensation. Some of the medical conditions dog bite victims experience include:

    • Back pain
    • Broken or fractured bones
    • Eye injuries
    • Headaches
    • Internal organ damage
    • Neck pain
    • Nerve damage
    • Paralysis
    • Sprained muscles
    • Tissue damage
    • Traumatic brain injuries

    Emotional suffering
    : Animal attacks are inherently traumatic. Victims of dog bites may suffer emotionally in the months and years following an attack, including having anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, nightmares, and paralyzing fear. Being scarred or disfigured is also emotionally traumatic.

What to Do When You’ve Been Bitten by a Dog in Texas

The steps you take immediately following a dog bite are important. Information you gather is evidence, and the medical care you receive becomes evidence that establishes the severity of your injuries. After a dog bite, victims should take the following steps:

  • Identify the owner of the dog and get their contact information (if you do not already have it).
  • Take photos and videos of the scene of the attack, the dog, your injuries, etc.
  • Get medical attention immediately.
  • Contact a Dallas dog bite attorney.

Texas is different from other states where the owner of the dog is “strictly liable” for injuries caused by the dog. In Texas, to recover compensation for a dog bite claim, the victim must prove that the owner of the dog was negligent. If the owner of the dog is aware that their dog is aggressive or has bitten someone before, they may be determined liable for any subsequent attack, knockdown, orbiting incident.
