Animal Attacks & Dog Bites in Fort Worth

If you've been injured in an animal attack in Fort Worth, you may be entitled to compensation.

Dogs are often considered man’s best friend. However, few things are more frightening than being attacked by a dog. Such an attack can leave you or a loved one severely injured and traumatized. In Texas, the owner of a dog can be held liable for the injuries it inflicts, provided that the owner knew (or had reason to know) that the animal had "dangerous propensities."  In addition, recent legislative action has made it a crime to permit your dog to attack others in Texas under certain circumstances.
Unfortunately, Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Chows, Dobermans, and Akitas can all be extremely dangerous animals and cause severe and lasting injury, scarring, disfigurement, and even death, especially to children. 

Depending on the facts and seriousness of your Fort Worth animal attack injuries resulting from a dog bite or other animal, you may be entitled to recover for: medical expenses, scarring and disfigurement, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage.

In addition, punitive damages may be awarded in certain instances.  If you are the victim of a dog bite in Fort Worth, you need to seek medical help immediately to attend to your injuries. If you are not treated, the bite can cause serious injury and even death.
