If your child was bitten by a dog, call our law office for legal guidance
Seek out a dog attack attorney who understands the law – Being bitten by someone else’s dog is never your fault. You may feel partially responsible, or the owner may try to claim that you were somehow the instigator. Even insurance companies may deny a claim under dubious pretenses that attempt to shift blame from the dog to the victim. This is wrong, and our Abilene dog attack attorneys will aggressively fight to protect your interests.
Remember that insurance company’s primary concern is their bottom line. In their never-ending pursuit of profits they seek to deny dog attack victims with the compensation they’re entitled to – money they need to fully recover.
In cases where the dog owner is a friend or relative, it may be tempting to try and settle the case on your own. You may even be tempted to handle your own case just to put the whole series of events behind you as quickly as possible. Just remember that dog attack victims who independently pursue a claim usually receive a fraction of their medical costs from the insurance company. Statistics place that number at only 10 to 20 percent of what they would have received by hiring a legal professional.
Abilene, Texas – from modest beginnings to a thriving city
There are nearly 167,000 people living in the city of Abilene, most of which are responsible dog and pet owners. Abilene residents take their dogs to the park, on walks along the street, and allow them to ride along in their car when they run errands. Dogs are also kept behind fences and in homes within residential neighborhoods, apartment complexes, and town homes. Our lawyers routinely deal with cases involving dog attacks, and we’ve learned they can happen anywhere, at any time.
In 1881,when Abilene became a city, dogs weren’t as prominent as they are today. In those days, Abilene was a cattle shipping point, but quickly grew and became the Taylor County seat.
In the 1940s, Abilene purchased property to build the Camp Barkeley Army base, which significantly increased the population. The base closed after the war, but some of those servicemen opened local businesses because they saw the potential for this thriving Texas city.
When in Abilene, enjoy some of the sights, sounds, and flavor
Modern Abilene has a number of restaurants, shops, and attractions that offer fun and excitement throughout the year. Be sure to visit Frontier Texas, where life-size holograms breathe life in the distant past. Back in Abilene’s wild west days, you were far more likely to be bitten by a rattlesnake than a dog. Frontier Texas puts you front-and-center in these lawless days, so if you ever wanted to be a real cowboy, this is your chance.
Another popular attraction is the Abilene Zoo, home to more than 1,000 animals, although we’re not sure how many dogs are in the mix. The Abilene Zoo offers educational programs and camps for kids, so that they can learn about the diverse animals that live in their home state, and around the world.
