Thousands of people are injured every year by unrestrained, vicious dogs in Texas. Texas laws regarding dog bites and attacks by other dangerous pets go through changes periodically. Most dogs are allowed "one free bite" in Texas, but after that, the owner is said to have prior knowledge of the animal's dangerous propensities. Accordingly, the animal must be restrained and leash laws must be followed at all times. However, some animals and dog breeds such as Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Akitas and German Shepherds, must always be restrained and are not allowed "one free bite" because of the danger they pose by their vicious nature. If you have been bitten or attacked in any circumstance by any animal, it is important to contact an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer immediately.

Children can be very susceptible to animal attacks, and they can suffer much more devastating injuries.
