I remember my brother Yang was bitten by the neighbor’s dog on the lips when he was younger. Yes, on the lips! We did not really make a big fuss out of it because the dog was owned by a relative and we all know the scenario might merit emotional outbursts and future conflicts. Here, there are no clear laws that make dog owners responsible for the pets’ misdemeanor. I know of someone whose daughter got into the same situation and they hired an Austin dog bite lawyer to make the owner shoulder everything. The lawyer was from a firm which does personal injury and car accident cases. Needless to say, they were properly compensated and the daughter was given proper medical attention. How long before something like that happens in this country?
