An Event That Can Last A Lifetime
Sadly, a large number of dog bite victims are children. Many of these suffer serious injuries to their faces that require expensive reconstructive or cosmetic surgery. Even when this is successful, the effects of a dog attack can last a lifetime. The child may be permanently scarred or disfigured, and require psychological counseling. Persons who suffer serious injuries from dog attacks may need substantial financial resources to pay for medical care, reconstructive and plastic surgery, lost income and to compensate for pain and suffering.
O'Connor & Associates has a long track record of success in obtaining compensation for persons who have been victims of negligence. We will work to obtain all of the compensation you need and deserve.
“One Free Bite”
Texas applies a “one free bite” standard in dog bite cases, rather than a strict liability standard. This means that a personal injury lawyer must prove that the dog’s owner was negligent in the handling and care of the dog, or that the dog has bitten someone before and because of that the owner should have taken precautions to prevent the dog bite from happening.
