Premises Liability and Animal Attacks
In Texas, leash laws are supposed to prevent dogs from attacking people in public. Unfortunately, some leashed dogs can become aggressive and break from their owner’s hold. For victims of leashed dog bites, the law provides a remedy in the form of premises liability. Premises liability law holds the property owner responsible for your injuries. This means that a dog owner is responsible for the animal’s actions anywhere, at any time. If you experienced the following, you may be able to recover:
- You were lawfully in a public place or private residence and were bitten
- You did not provoke the dog
- The owner knew or knows his/her dog may be vicious
- The dog is a notoriously dangerous breed
