FAQ: What is the “one bite” rule? Does it apply in Texas?

The “one bite” rule establishes that a person can be held strictly liable for damages caused by an animal known to be dangerous; ie,has bitten once before. Nevertheless, should an animal bite for the first time, then the person that was injured by the animal must prove that the animal was dangerous.
