TEXAS Dog Bite
With all the pet dogs in U.S. households, it’s no surprise that more than 800,000 Americans get medical treatment for dog bites every year. And that number doesn’t include other kinds of injuries, like when a dog knocks someone over or causes an accident by chasing a motorcycle. Depending on the circumstances and the relevant laws, dog owners are generally liable if their pets hurt someone. That means the owners (or their insurance companies) may have to pay the victims for the harm they suffered or damages.
