Whether you’re a cat person, a dog lover, or could do without animals altogether, a dog bite can leave you seriously injured in an instant. Maybe it was your neighbor’s bad-tempered German shepherd, that always barked at you, or perhaps it was your brother’s mild retriever that always seemed so friendly. There is usually little warning before a dog bites you, and the reasons aren’t always clear. But finding out why isn’t nearly as important as getting the compensation you deserve.
Nevada is one of the few states in the country without a dog bite statute; in other words, it goes by the “one bite rule”. A dog owner is only held responsible for a bite if the sufferer can prove that the dog showed signs of aggression in the past and the owner was aware of this, making a victim’s case much more difficult to support. That’s why you need an experienced Las Vegas dog bite lawyer at Ladah Law, PLLC.
At Ladah Law, we are committed to building a strong injury case, even with the one bite rule. We have the experience and knowledge to help you get fair compensation for your dog bite incident. If the dog’s owner was in any way negligent (not acting like a reasonably careful pet owner), he or she may be held liable. For example, allowing a dog to roam around a park unattended would be considered negligent behavior on the owner’s part.
Dog bite cases are complicated with all the nuances of Nevada’s law. But if you are a victim of one of the many dog bites in Nevada, you deserve help. With Ladah Law, you could receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We’re just a phone call away, so pick up the phone and make an appointment today.
