You Have The Right To Seek Compensation For Your Injury

Animal attacks encompass a range of incidents, from dog bites to wildlife encounters, resulting in physical and emotional trauma. In Texas, victims have the right to seek compensation for their injuries if the attack occurred due to the negligence of the animal’s owner or another responsible party. This compensation may cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Common Reasons For Animal Attack Claims:

  • Negligent supervision by the animal’s owner

  • Provocation or intentional harm by another party

Animal Attacks FAQs

What If The Animal That Attacked Me Has A History Of Aggression Or Previous Attacks?

If the animal has a documented history of aggression or previous attacks, it can significantly strengthen your case for compensation. The owner may be held liable for failing to take appropriate precautions to prevent future incidents. Mr. Guajardo will investigate the animal’s history and use this information to support your claim for compensation.

Can I Still Pursue A Claim If The Animal Has Never Bitten Anyone Before?

Yes, even if the animal has no history of biting, you may still be able to pursue a claim for compensation if other evidence establishes the owner’s negligence or the animal’s dangerous propensities. Factors such as the animal’s breed, size, behavior, and the circumstances of the attack will be considered in determining liability.

What If The Animal's Owner Claims I Provoked The Attack?

Even if the animal’s owner claims provocation, you may still be entitled to compensation if the owner failed to properly restrain or control the animal or if other factors contributed to the attack. It’s essential to consult with a personal injury lawyer to assess the specifics of your case.

How Long Do I Have To File A Claim After An Animal Attack?

In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, including those arising from animal attacks, is generally two years from the date of the incident. However, it’s crucial to take action promptly and consult with a lawyer like Mr. Guajardo to ensure your rights are protected.

What If The Animal That Attacked Me Is A Stray Or Wild Animal With No Owner?

In cases involving stray or wild animals, it may still be possible to seek compensation through other avenues, such as homeowner’s insurance if the attack occurred on someone’s property or through government agencies responsible for animal control. Please consult with Mr. Guajardo to explore your legal options.
