Las Vegas Dog Bite Injury Attorneys

About five million people are bitten, attacked, or mauled by dogs every year in the United States. Nearly one million of these people have to visit a doctor or go to an emergency room to receive medical care for their injuries. If you live in Las Vegas or in the State of Nevada, and you have suffered injuries after being bitten or attacked by a dog or another animal, our law firm will help you understand your legal rights.

As the victim of a dog bite or dog mauling in Las Vegas you may be able to claim financial compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, and other related expenses. We have successfully handled some of the most challenging dog injury cases in Nevada for clients with very serious injuries, including physical disfigurement, broken bones, severed limbs, facial injuries, and wrongful death. Our firm has the knowledge, dedication, skills, and compassion to work with you.

Unfortunately most of the victims of dog bites are children and the injuries from these attacks can be quite severe and can include:

  • Rabies
  • Lacerations
  • Emotional trauma
  • Fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Death

Keep in mind that dog owners have a responsibility to control the animal. This is especially true when the dog is a so-called “high-risk breed” or has a vicious propensity. However, any dog can be dangerous and aggressive. The dog is not to blame; however, the owner is legally responsible for the animal’s behavior. Animal owners are not the only people who can be held responsible for animal bites. In certain case animal keepers, landlords, property owners, and parents of minors are also examples where someone other than the animal owner can be held liable for a dog bite.

For more than 25 years, the attorneys at our firm have successfully represented dog bite victims, and we will fight to win the maximum settlement for your injuries from insurance companies who may try to convince you to settle for the lowest possible amount. You should also be aware that there is a statute of limitations or time limit by which you must begin a dog bite suit. For this and other reasons, if you are considering consulting with a dog bite attorney, it is in your interest to do so as soon as possible. Contact our firm today for a free evaluation.
