I hired Mullen & Mullen following a motor vehicle collision. I could not be more pleased with the Dallas personal injury lawyers I selected. They are the real deal! I was always kept in the loop on case developments. My attorneys sent the at-fault liability carrier multiple demands to make them agree to pay the policy limits. My lawyers also sent my own insurance company several demands to get them to offer me nearly the policy limits. A lot of attorneys would have given up and just recommended filing a lawsuit but Mullen & Mullen kept pounding the insurance companies until they did the right thing. This saved me a tremendous amount of money and time. I'm so very grateful that I found ethical, tenacious, and skilled attorneys to represent me. Mullen & Mullen gets my highest recommendation if you need a Dallas car accident attorney.C. Burnett

I’m only 22 and this was the first case I’ve ever had, I got recommended Mullen and Mullen by a friend who has used them plenty of times and said nothing but good things about them. I have yet to see or hear anything that contradicts her statements! Everyone on the Mullen and Mullen team has been super helpful and kind to me by explaining everything that had and needs to be done to get the case in the right direction. Greg especially has been very helpful by keeping me updated and answering any questions I might have about the situation, he’s been an amazing help and I’m glad I was able to get him assigned to help me get what I deserve from my car accident. Very professional and fast responses, If you are ever injured in a car accident I 100% recommend this team to fight for you, ask for Greg!

It Honestly baffles me to see ANY negative or low reviews on this law firm. My case is far from over, however, I have never known a lawyer or law firm to not only give you their personal cell phone number but to also respond within 15 minutes. Never a complaint on the 10 plus text messages asking questions or the 2-3 paragraph e-mails. Never telling you it's to late or they are off the clock. They are NEVER off the clock. This firm has two or three lawyers dealing with numerous clients and STILL manage to do all they can to make you feel you are the only one. Try to remember they are human. They truly do everything to put you and your recovery first. The process is long but not something they have any control over. They don't control the Dr. Appointments or your recovery. They will help you find amazing Dr.s then it's up to you to be proactive in your recovery and keeping your appointments. It's been over a year and a half since my injury and my amazing, patient, and hardworking Attorney Joe has been here with me every step of the way. Hundreds of 5 star reviews. 3 or 4 low ones. You do the math.

What Your Attorney Says

"It is important in dog bite cases to retain counsel familiar with all potential causes of action."

My spouse and I are proud parents to two rescue dogs, Max and Tobey. They hold an enormous place in our hearts and are integral members of our family.

While most dogs are known for their friendly disposition and lead uneventful lives, regrettably, some canines pose a danger to people. I’ve witnessed distressing injuries sustained by clients in dog bite incidents that are etched in my memory.

It’s crucial to understand that a dog owner can be held responsible for injuries you suffer if they were aware that their dog had previously bitten someone. But it’s equally important to note that liability can extend to cases where the owner knew their dog exhibited behavior that suggested it might bite or attack someone. Moreover, not all dogs are afforded a “free bite” under the law. Specific breeds, such as Akitas and Pit Bulls, are considered inherently dangerous, making their owners strictly liable for injuries caused by their dogs.

Furthermore, various cities and counties have enacted their own animal control laws, which typically require dogs to be leashed. A violation of these “leash laws” often results in the owner being deemed “negligent per se,” meaning they are automatically considered negligent under the law.

Dog owners and handlers can also be held responsible for the negligent handling of non-aggressive animals. In short, they have a duty to exercise reasonable care to prevent their animals from causing harm to others.

I vividly remember a case in which we represented a five-year-old girl. She accompanied her father to deliver an item to a neighbor. The neighbor had a small dog, not an inherently dangerous breed and with no history of biting. However, the homeowner’s mother negligently allowed the dog to escape as she opened the door. The dog lunged at the young child, and its nails caught her in the eyelid. Subsequently, a minor plastic surgery was required to rectify the damage. This was an undoubtedly traumatic experience, especially for a child.

In dog bite cases, it’s essential to seek legal counsel well-versed in all potential legal avenues. In the case mentioned earlier, the child’s portion of the settlement amounted to over $110,000. These funds were placed in an annuity, guaranteeing a contractual payout of at least $179,864.81 over a specified period. This sum is sufficient to finance her future college education, and we extend our best wishes to her.

$500,000 Settlement for Child Attacked by Dog

About Dog Bite Cases

Have you or your child been bitten by a dog in Fort Worth? If so, you’re likely experiencing intense physical pain, and the recovery from dog bite injuries may extend for weeks or even months, possibly resulting in permanent disfigurement.

Beyond the physical toll, there’s the psychological trauma. The fear of encountering unrestrained dogs during nightly walks or an unease around even friendly dogs can persist, leading to potential post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for dog bite victims.

For children, the impact can be lasting, instilling a lifelong apprehension of dogs due to the mental anguish associated with disfigurement resulting from a vicious dog attack.

The financial strain adds another layer of difficulty. Mounting medical bills, uncertain final costs, and the dog owner’s insurance company delaying or denying payment can leave you feeling overwhelmed and hopeless.

Dog bites may occur despite responsible ownership, but more often they result from inadequate training, supervision, or restraint. Owners may be aware of their dog’s aggressive history but neglect necessary precautions, exposing others to potential harm.

To establish liability for your dog bite injuries, our Fort Worth lawyers will seek to demonstrate various factors, including the dog’s prior aggression, a history of attacks, the inherently dangerous nature of the breed, deviation from a standard of care, or a violation of leash laws.

Dog owners should carry liability insurance, often covered by homeowner’s insurance, with typical coverage ranging from $100,000 to $300,000. Seeking the assistance of skilled Fort Worth dog bite lawyers becomes crucial in navigating these complexities. Importantly, the best dog bite attorneys in Fort Worth work on a contingent fee basis, meaning you only pay a fee if your case settles, making quality legal representation affordable and accessible.


Is The Owner Automatically Responsible If A Dog Bites Me?

The answer isn’t straightforward. While many Texans assume they’re entitled to compensation, it’s not a given. In Texas, dog bite law typically necessitates proving the dog’s past aggressive behavior and the owner’s negligence.

There’s an exception for bites from inherently dangerous breeds like Pit Bulls and Dobermans. The compensation you receive for injuries depends on their extent, impact on your life, and your role in the situation. If you provoked the attack, Texas comparative negligence law may reduce your compensation based on your fault percentage.

How Do Owners Defend Themselves In Dog Bite Cases?

Typically, they claim ignorance of the dog’s aggressive history. Just being bitten doesn’t guarantee automatic compensation. Hence, having a skilled Fort Worth dog bite injury lawyer is crucial.

Are Dog Bite Cases Easy To Win?

Not necessarily. You bear the burden of proof, and factors like insurance coverage may complicate matters. Some policies exclude coverage for specific dog breeds.

Should I File A Claim If A Friend Or Family Member’s Dog Bit Me?

In most cases, you’re filing against their homeowner’s insurance, not them personally. A true friend or family member would want you to be compensated for damages, and homeowner’s insurance is designed for such situations.

While no one plans for accidents, understanding the myths and realities of Texas dog bite law can help you protect yourself. If you find yourself a victim, contact our Fort Worth dog bite lawyers at (817) 768-6680 for a free consultation.


In Texas, the concept of dog owner liability for injuries revolves around a peculiar “one free bite” rule. It’s important to note, however, that this rule doesn’t grant absolute immunity to dog owners in every situation.

Consider the scenario where you’ve been bitten by a dog. Is the owner automatically responsible for covering your financial losses? It’s not as straightforward as a simple “yes” or “no” answer. The applicability of liability depends on the specific facts and circumstances of your case.

Let’s delve into the intricacies of Texas dog bite law:

Texas Adheres To A “One Free Bite” Rule:

Typically, dog owners enjoy legal protection for their dog’s first bite, unless liability can be established on other grounds. Essentially, if it’s the dog’s initial bite and there were no prior signs of aggressive behavior, there’s a chance the owner might not be held financially responsible for your injuries. However, exceptions to this rule exist, including instances of negligence, violation of leash laws, outrageous behavior, deviation from established standards of care, or involvement of inherently dangerous dog breeds.

Defenses Against Liability:

Common defenses against liability involve asserting that the owner had no knowledge of their dog’s previous aggressive incidents or that the injured party was trespassing or comparatively negligent. As the plaintiff, you bear the burden of proof, needing to demonstrate that it’s “more likely than not” that the owner was negligent or that one of the exceptions mentioned earlier applies.

Negligence In Dog Bite Cases:

Negligence may be established if the owner fails to supervise their dog, especially if there are leash laws in place. For instance, letting a dog off the leash in a neighborhood could lead to a finding of negligence, particularly if a leash law is violated.

Unlike “strict liability” states, where dog owners are responsible for any harm caused by their dogs, Texas follows a more nuanced approach, except in cases involving inherently dangerous breeds.

If you’re uncertain about liability in your dog bite case, seek a free consultation with an injury lawyer to better understand your rights. Reach out to our Fort Worth dog bite attorneys at (817) 768-6680 for assistance.


To succeed in a Fort Worth dog attack lawsuit, you must demonstrate that the owner knew or should have known their dog was dangerous. Various factors can support this claim, such as frequent confinement or restraint of the dog, specific dog breeds known for aggression, signs warning about the dog’s nature, and any documented instances of aggressive behavior.

However, these factors alone are not conclusive evidence of liability. Proving that the owner “knew or should have known” their dog was dangerous requires establishing a clear pattern of aggressive behavior.

Regrettably, Texas stands out as a leader in some undesirable aspects. The state consistently ranks among the most perilous in terms of severe dog bite injuries and fatalities, often claiming the top spot depending on the year.

Data compiled by sheds light on incidents involving dog bites and the resulting serious harm or fatalities. In 2015, Texas recorded the highest number of deaths, totaling 5, and from 2005 to 2013, the state led the nation with a total of 34 deaths.

In the current year, Texas remains prominently featured in dog attack statistics.

Consider the tragic case of Johana Villafane, whose life was cut short in a shocking incident. While visiting her pit bulls placed in quarantine at O’Connor Animal Hospital, she was fatally mauled. The dogs had been under quarantine due to a previous attack on a man just eight days before. Remarkably, the hospital had requested Villafane to walk the dogs as their own staff found them too aggressive to handle. Understanding the causes behind such incidents and taking preventive measures is crucial.


Not all dogs are inherently dangerous, but it’s essential to recognize that some breeds may pose challenges requiring careful handling and training by responsible owners.

While most dogs aspire to be well-behaved, inadequate training can lead some to display undesirable behaviors, including aggression towards people. Spotting warning signs and understanding the potential risks associated with certain breeds is crucial.

It’s a common misconception that encountering a stray or barking dog guarantees an attack; however, this isn’t always the case. Some breeds are statistically associated with a higher likelihood of aggressive behavior. Here are some recognized examples, along with advice on meeting them safely in the presence of their owners:

Pit Bulls:

Pit Bulls encompass various breeds, including the American Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, and American Bulldog.
Historically used for bull and bear baiting, as well as in dog fighting circles worldwide.
Caution is advised, and meeting a Pit Bull with its owner is recommended for a more controlled introduction.


Bred by the Roman army for herding cattle throughout Europe, with a subsequent history as cattle-driving dogs. Known for a strong temperament that demands a calm, assertive, and attentive owner to manage their emotions effectively.

German Shepherds:

Originally bred to assist shepherds in protecting flocks, later gaining popularity as loyal guard dogs.
Proper training is crucial, as their behavior can vary significantly based on responsible ownership.

Doberman Pinschers:

Developed by German tax collector Louis Dobermann in the early 1800s, with roles including guarding and as a result of his work, running the local dog pound.

While they can make excellent pets when properly raised and trained, their background suggests a need for responsible ownership.


It’s important to note that any dog, with proper care and attention, can become a cherished family pet. However, certain breeds, often due to genetics, may be statistically more predisposed to aggressive behavior.

In Texas, legal considerations vary, with “one free bite” not applying to inherently dangerous breeds like Pit Bulls. Owners of such breeds are expected to recognize and manage potential risks from the outset.

If you’ve experienced a dog bite incident, seeking advice from a qualified personal injury lawyer is recommended.


Although rare, aggressive dog attacks can occur unexpectedly. It’s essential to be prepared and knowledgeable on how to handle such situations. Texas holds the unfortunate lead in fatal dog attacks, making it crucial to understand the appropriate actions in the event of an attack.

Recognizing the signs of an impending dog attack is challenging, as not all dogs exhibit the typical warning signals, such as growling, lunging, snarling, or baring teeth. Some dogs may freeze momentarily, making it imperative to stay attentive to even subtle signs.

If A Dog Displays Aggressive Behavior, Consider The Following Actions:

  • Avoid eye contact: Refrain from staring at the dog, as this may be perceived as a challenge.
  • Remain still and silent: Minimize your movements and refrain from speaking to make yourself less interesting to the dog.
  • Slowly back away: Move away from the dog and create a barrier between yourself and the animal.
  • Seek help calmly: If possible, ask someone nearby for assistance in a composed manner, avoiding loud or sudden noises that could startle the dog.
  • If on the ground: If you find yourself on the ground, curl into a ball, protect your neck, and avoid making sudden movements.

In The Unfortunate Event That A Dog Attacks And Bites You, Employ The Following Tactics:

  • Cover the dog’s head: Use a jacket, shirt, or any available object to block the dog’s vision, which may lead to disengagement.
  • Redirect the bite: Utilize a jacket, shirt, or another object to redirect the dog’s biting away from yourself.
  • Avoid screaming: Yelling can escalate the dog’s behavior, so try to remain as quiet as possible.
  • Refrain from hitting the dog: Resist the impulse to strike the dog, as it may intensify the attack by increasing the dog’s adrenaline.
  • Remaining composed and implementing these strategies is crucial in navigating a dog attack successfully.

While encountering an aggressive dog is an unsettling prospect, being aware of these guidelines can help you respond effectively in such challenging situations.
