When an injury is caused by someone else’s dog, whether at their house or at the park, there is an avenue to recover not just your medical bills, but compensation for your pain, scarring, and mental anguish. The key to most of these claims is the history of the dog. Texas follows what has been called the first bite rule, which relates to the requirement that an owner know of his dog’s aggressive nature before he can be held liable for an attack. There may be exceptions to this rule depending on the circumstances.
