Generally, a Texas dog owner is not liable for any damages caused by the dog unless the dog’s owner knew the animal was dangerous and had a propensity to be vicious. However, in certain cases, a dog owner may be held liable for injuries even if the dog has not previously attacked another person or if the dog owner or handler was negligent in taking care of the animal.
At Ben Bronston & Associates, we strongly believe in personal accountability. Pet owners have a duty to ensure a safe environment for others who come in contact with an animal. If a dog is not fit for human interaction, they should be kept secured to prevent serious injury to other adults and especially children.
We represent victims of dog attacks prompted by owner negligence throughout Texas.
