Dog Bite Lawyer in Weslaco, TX
Aggressive Representation for Victims & Families in McAllen & the Rio Grande Valley
If you were attacked by a dangerous dog, or a loved one was bitten, act quickly and consult a Weslaco dog bite attorney regarding your rights. The owner of the dog or the owner of the property where the dog was located may be held legally responsible to pay for your medical care and other injuries or losses you have experienced. Liability (legal responsibility) in these matters may vary depending on the nature of the incident, negligence on the part of the dog owner, and whether the dog showed aggressive behavior in the past. It takes a competent attorney to prove fault in a dog bite claim, but we at Lopez Law Group are up to the challenge.

Some states impose strict liability on dog owners in the event of an attack, meaning the owner may be automatically held legally responsible, even if the dog showed no aggressive behavior in the past. Texas does not implement this type of dog bite law. This can make it more challenging for a lawyer to recover compensation for a dog bite victim. With our experience and resources, however, our team can thoroughly investigate a case to determine how to best prove fault.
In Texas, a dog owner may be held legally responsible for injuries his or her animal inflicts under the following circumstances:
- The dog previously attacked someone or exhibited aggressive behavior, and the owner knew of this.
- The dog’s owner had a duty to reasonably protect others from injury caused by the dog and failed to uphold this duty, resulting in the victim’s injuries.
- The dog’s owner was in violation of animal control laws and the dog attacked and injured the victim.
