Dog bites are a serious problem, and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 4.5 million Americans, nearly half of whom are children, suffer dog bites each year. Of these millions of dog bite victims, almost 900,000 per year need medical attention. In fact, some dog attacks are even fatal. And more than 2,700 people had to have reconstructive surgery due to dog bites in 2012 alone.

Not only do dog bites hurt people physically, but they hurt financially, too: Americans face an estimated $1 billion in losses yearly due to dog bite attacks. That’s why if you’ve been attacked, you need the help of skilled dog bite lawyers like the ones at Jim Adler & Associates.

These dog bites never should happen, not if people were obeying the law. Virtually every city in America has leash laws requiring dogs to be properly restrained. That means they should be inside a house, inside a fenced yard, or on a leash at all times. They should not be free to run anywhere they want, including a front yard or driveway.

Some dog owners choose to ignore or are ignorant of such laws, and they let their dogs run loose around their property. “He won’t bite,” they may say, but there’s always a first time, and the law is the law. Besides, why risk being fined for failing to restrain a dog or even facing a dog bite lawsuit if your dog bites a passer-by? The law is on the side of the victim, and when the victim also has a dog bite lawyer like Jim Adler, the Texas Hammer®, on their side, irresponsible dog owners don’t stand a chance.

In fact, dog bite laws are getting tougher. Dog owners whose animals attack people even can be sent to prison for some offenses. In Harris County, two people were charged in January 2014 after two pit bulls attacked and killed a homeless woman. Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said at that time that dog attacks causing serious bodily injury or death will not be tolerated. Instead, such dogs’ owners “will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.” Those charged in a dog attack lawsuit could face two to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

“Many people believe their dog is a loving member of their family and will not bite, but given the right situation, most dogs can attack,” Anderson said. “You must be a responsible pet owner.”

If you have suffered a dog bite, notify our personal injury lawyers. We can provide you with a dog bite attorney to champion your case and help you get the compensation you deserve for your injury.

Don’t worry about a trial: Most personal injury lawsuits are resolved by negotiations to reach an out-of-court settlement. And our law firm works on a contingency basis, meaning you won’t pay unless we win your case. Then, our firm is paid from a portion of the settlement amount, not out of your pocket.

Texas has strict deadlines on how long you can wait before filing an injury claim, so don’t delay: Contact a dog bite lawyer with our firm today and let us give you a free case review. Consulting a professional dog bite attorney with Jim Adler & Associates can ensure that dog bite laws bite back in your favor.

I am a Patrol Deputy for the Sheriff Office and while working one night, a drunk driver crossed the center stripe on the highway and struck my patrol vehicle head on with his pick up truck. Needless to say we (the drunk driver and I) were both lucky to survive, as the accident occurred at highway speeds. Following my release from the hospital, I knew that I would need to have someone represent me. My employer was happy to represent me in regards to prosecuting the driver for criminal charges but, can do little in respect to the recovery of financial losses for medical bills, pain and discomfort, time lost from work etc... This is how my relationship with Jim Adler and Associates began. Yep, you probably guessed correctly when you think of what made me choose the "Texas Hammer" to represent me. Those half obnoxious, half way entertaining commercials and radio announcements most Texans have been seeing and hearing on the TV and radio for years instantly came to mind. Yes, I wanted to "hammer" this S.O.B. for trying to kill me but, more importantly I was worried about the costs associated with the life long injuries I had sustained as a result of this drunk driver's negligent behavior. I contacted Jim Adler and Associates and so began our relationship. I was immediately surprised by the prompt attention and the expression of genuine concern for my well being that I received from the employees of Jim Adler's office. Now as you can imagine, lawyers are not a breed that is held in very high regard by people in my profession but, my experiences with Jim Adler's office and his employees have forced me to amend my way of thinking, at least on the civil side of the house anyway. I have to chuckle when I say that because my experience as a client of Jim Adler's firm has been exceptionally pleasant. So before I venture down one of the stereotypical and infinite number of rabbit holes associated with the relationship between members of law enforcement and lawyers; I will do my best to stay focused on my experience with Jim Adler & Associates. Upon being informed that my case had been accepted by Jim Adler's office; I was contacted by Iris Sanchez who informed me that she was to be my case manager and any questions, comments and concerns could be directed to her. I was pleasantly surprised to receive regular calls from Iris assisting with my medical appointments and future follow up appointments. Iris had informed me that Jim Adler's son, Bill Adler would be handling my case and I was even more surprised to receive several calls from Bill to discuss my case. Now you might be thinking "what's the big deal" with the person who is representing you contacting you? In reality, you are correct in that it isn't a big deal but, what is noteworthy and what separates Jim Adler's Office from the multitude of other lawyers is the genuine expressions of concern and the desire Bill Adler conveyed to me to do their best to help me. I felt an immediate connection and instantly realized I had made the correct choice in contacting Jim Adler & Associates to handle my case. One thing I think lawyers and police officers can agree on is the proverbial wheels of justice turn very slowly. Months go by and our professional relationship is never neglected. Through the unwavering attention of Iris Sanchez and Bill Adler himself, I never felt "out of the loop" so to speak and always had a clear understanding of where my case was at in regards to the legal process. In conclusion, I know my brief description of my experiences with Bill Adler and, his assistant Iris Sanchez, cannot provide the credit they deserve. Together they have done an outstanding job representing their firm/employer. If you are seeking a great firm to represent your legal interests and, take comfort in establishing a professional relationship that feels more like a friendship than a casual business acquaintance, then I highly suggest Jim Adler & Associates.

I was dropped from a previous law firm regarding my case before I called Jim Adler. They immediately took up my case and worked hard on it - I was always up to date with each step they took and the benefits or consequences of each. In the end, I am highly satisfied with the outcome and would not have it any other way. It took some time but I truly appreciate and want to thank everybody who helped me on this journey and worked tirelessly on it.

I am very happy with Jim Adler & Associates. I did not know anyone who has ever used the Law Firm before. The staff is very friendly and treated me as if I were family. At times it got very stressful being without a job. They helped me when I was confused about the process. Mrs. Theresa Rodriguez stayed in contact with me constantly. Checking on me to see how I was doing and to let me know how things were going on there end. The Attorneys that handled my case know exactly what they are doing to take good care of me. Thank You so much Attorney's Mr.Michael Gomez and Mr.Trey Smith.
