Dallas Dog Bite Injury Lawyer Herbert Law
Personal Injury Areas We Are Great At
Dog Bite Injury
Lillian’s law, a law named after 76 year-old Lillian Stiles, allows for criminal charges against the owner of a dog that causes a person’s injury or death. However, there are no civil laws in Texas that protect the person who is injured. Texas follows caselaw that states the owner of the dog is liable if they knew that their dog was aggressive or dangerous and failed to keep the dog from others.
You might have heard of the “one bite rule”. This effectively states that the owner of the dog gets one bite free from consequences. But that is not necessarily the case. Most of the time when a dog viciously attacks another person, the owner has already had many warnings that the dog is aggressive and needs to be kept away from others. We will investigate your case and make sure that you know all your options before proceeding. Contact us now if you or a loved one has been injured by a dog bite.

Zach took a chance on my case after I was denied by other attorneys, knowing it was complicated and already lengthy. He kept me informed every step of the way and fought for what we thought was a fair settlement. All in all, the entire process from hiring him to reaching a settlement, took only about two months and we were able to settle without a trial! I am very pleased with the result, and would highly recommend him.
Zach is just a really great guy, he is down to earth and very personable. He was very professional and understanding to our situation. He answered all our questions in a timely manner and never made us feel like we were inconveniencing him. I would recommend Zach to everyone.
If I could give a100 stars I would. Zach is very personable and always follow up with you right away. I’ve worked with Attorneys before in the past and they were just about the money and not for the client. I’ve also reached out to Zach for a friend needing and Attorney for handling his mom’s estate and Zach was able to assist with referrals. Zach, thank you so much for all you have done.
If you want someone to fight for you all the way through a jury trial then Zach is your man. He is just as much a Marine in the courtroom as he was serving our country. A lot of lawyers in Texas are afraid of juries, not Zach. My case settled but I stuck with Zach because insurance companies know he will take it to the bitter end if he has to.
