DFW Animal Attacks

Although dogs are often labeled as “man’s best friend”, there are situations that can arise where this is certainly not the case. Even though a dog may be domestic, it’s still an animal and some aspects of their nature are not completely understood.

DFW Dog Bite & Animal Attack Lawyers

When dogs and other animals attack people, the injuries sustained by the victims involved are, in many cases, gruesome and terrifying as well as emotionally charged. Long after the attack is over, many victims still suffer emotional pain in the form of post traumatic stress disorder.

People also develop phobias of the animals that attacked them, severely limiting their day to day activities. The DFW dog bite lawyers at Langford and Wise, are here for you in this tragic time. Our passionate attorneys know all the legal stipulations and regulations governing animal attacks in Dallas and have the tools needed to make your case a success.

Dallas Animal Attacks: Frequency & Negligence

Although it may never be known why an animal attacked someone, the number of attacks is tracked. In 2013 in Texas alone, there were 4 dog attacks across the state that ended fatally.

The victim in an animal attack in Dallas needs to be able to show that the owner of the animal was negligent, in some way, or otherwise knew that the animal had a dangerous propensity to bite or attack a person. Negligence can be an owner leaving a gate open and allowing their dog to roam the streets, unattended. It can be established if an owner violated a leash law and allowed their pet to wander in a park or school. Leash laws are in place to protect people from these attacks, when owners violate these laws then they can be found negligent and ordered to pay victims compensation for their injuries.

Texas Dog Bite Injuries

When animals bite and attack people, the results can be horrific to say the least. Potential injuries that a person can sustain in an Texas animal attack can include:

  • Puncture Wounds
  • Scratches and Cuts
  • Severed Fingers
  • Extensive Scarring
  • Psychological Trauma

In many cases, after a victim suffers an injury from an attack they are left with emotional trauma. This trauma is not to be taken lightly as it can significantly impair a person from enjoying their day to day life. Victims often experience post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following an attack and must see a reputable therapist to help with the issue. Medical bills from the attack and therapy expenses can add up quickly in the aftermath of an animal attack. Pursuing a claim of personal injury against the negligent owner is often the only means a person many have of covering these costs. That’s why it’s so important to contact an Texas personal injury attorney in the event of an animal attack.
