Is an owner liable for a dog bite in Texas?
In Texas, owners may be liable for their dog's actions if certain circumstances are in place. In order to obtain compensation from the owner, certain evidence must be proven.
The owner may be held liable if the following is present:
- If the dog had previously bitten another person or if the dog had a propensity to bite a person
- If the attack was a result of the dog owner's negligent actions
- If the attack was a result of the owner's failure to keep the dog on a leash/in an enclosed area
- If the attack was intentionally caused by the dog owner
If a dog is determined a "dangerous dog", the owner must have liability insurance for potential dog attacks. In addition, the dog must be registered with the local animal control entity. Victims may be able to file a premises liability claim to recover compensation.
