A dog bite can have lasting consequences. In addition to the possibility of scarring and disfigurement, some victims suffer emotional trauma which may require extensive counseling. While young children, the elderly and delivery people are among those at highest risk for dog bite injuries, anyone is susceptible.

Holding Dog Owners Responsible
In Nevada, dog owners are obligated to maintain control of their dogs. They are required to restrain their pets and keep them in an enclosed area to prevent dog attacks. However, a victim must prove that an owner was negligent and this carelessness resulted in the injury. Further, the injured individual must prove that the dog was unprovoked at the time of the attack.
Highly experienced with dog bite claims, our lawyers will thoroughly investigate your situation, including any past aggression on the dog's part. Whether your case involves a dog bite injury to a child or an attack on an adult, we can help. We will work with experts to determine the total cost of past and future treatment, including any potential reconstructive surgery, and pursue compensation for all your losses.
