Texas Dog Bite Law
Texas is a “one bite rule” or “negligence” state with regards to dog bites. To recover damages for a dog bite, the injured individual must demonstrate that the dog’s owner knew the dog had bitten someone before or had acted in an aggressive in the past, and the dog’s owner was negligent in controlling the dog or preventing the bit from happening, and that negligence resulted in injury. Texas’s statute of limitations provides a two-year window to file this type of personal injury lawsuit in the state’s civil court system.
