Texas, California, Michigan and Nebraska, are among the eighteen states that observe the "one-bite rule" which shields a dog owner from liability for the first bite injury to a human, unless the owner knew the dog tended to bite, caused the bite negligently or intentionally, or violated a leash law or other animal control law. In the remaining states and the District of Columbia, a dog owner usually is liable for the first and all subsequent bites even if the dog previously was a "good dog."
