Bitten or Attacked by a Dog? Call Bill Kennedy Law

Dogs are supposed to be man’s best friend. But if you’ve ever driven around out in the Texas country, you have seen just how badly people can treat their unwanted pets. Dogs lash out for all sorts of reasons, but if you or someone you love has been bitten, you should consider contacting a personal injury lawyer at Bill Kenneday Law as soon as possible.


Texas does prosecute dog owners who act with criminal negligence by failing to secure their dangerous dogs, according to Sec. 822.005 of the Texas Health and Safety Code. A person who is subject to prosecution under this section is one who fails to properly contain a dog that in turn makes an unprovoked attack on a person. Bill Kennedy Law can help with the investigation into whether or not this person knew of the dog’s underlying violent nature.


Dog attacks are scary experiences that can result in lifelong trauma. So if you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, you may be eligible to receive compensation. Don’t waste any time contacting an experienced personal injury attorney from Bill Kennedy Law. We will happily work with you to ensure you receive the professional care you need, whether inside the courtroom or out.

Who is Responsible for a Dangerous Dog?

Just like the parents of a child, pet owners are responsible for the care and keeping of their dogs. This is not a job for everyone, as dogs require a lot of attention, grooming, feeding, walking and more. No one likes to see a stray dog, so many unhappy pet owners feel obligated to keep their pets rather than try to sort out what shelters in the area are no-kill shelters.


Dogs are smart creatures. They can develop violent tendencies if they aren’t properly trained, and this seems to be especially true for the more aggressive breeds. When these dogs break loose, they can wreak havoc on the lives of the owners’ neighbors or anyone else who crosses their paths.


Dog owners are absolutely responsible for the actions of their pets. In a court of law, they can’t claim ignorance, as the way their pet behaves is oftentimes directly related to how the pet has been treated at home.


If you have a dog bite claim, Bill Kennedy Law will help investigate the conditions the dog lives in as well as any other pertinent evidence.
