Know Your Rights After A Dog Attack
Most of us love dogs, and most of the time they love us back. However, there are rare instances where a dog can turn vicious and cause injuries, necessitating the hiring of a dog bite lawyer. At Gibbs Nolte & Rose, PLLC, we have a great deal of experience helping victims of dog bites and other types of animal attacks obtain compensation for the injuries they have suffered.
Victims of dog bites and animal attacks will need someone to look out for their legal interests in the wake of this extremely stressful situation. A dog bite lawyer can uncover the evidence needed in order to establish the liability of the owner of the animal so that you stand the best chance of obtaining compensation for the losses, or damages, you have incurred.
A skilled dog bite lawyer will also know how complex this type of case can be, and will be equipped to deal with any challenges that arise. For example, Texas is different from other states in that, in most instances, it has to be proven that a dog or other animal was known to be dangerous and/or aggressive at the time the bite occurred. However, even if that animal did not show any indications of aggressiveness, an injured person may still be able to seek compensation due to a violation of local ordinances.
Animal Control Lawyer
Municipalities can vary a great deal regarding animal control regulations. For instance, certain breeds may fall under more restrictive regulations, such as pit bulls and other aggressive dog breeds. If your attorney can prove the owner failed to comply with local rules, you may be able to obtain compensation.
