When a dog bites or attacks someone in Nevada, the dog owner is almost always liable. If a dog bit you or someone in your family, or attacked, or even jumped on you causing injuries, talk to a personal injury lawyer about the victim’s rights.
Dog bite injuries are serious – both physically and psychologically. The scarring and nerve damage can last a lifetime. At Koch & Brim in Las Vegas, our attorneys handle every dog attack case with the long-term effects in mind.
A dog bite or dog attack injury requires immediate medical attention. If you are not sure what doctor to call or if health insurance is a problem, please call our law firm. We will arrange for you to be examined by a capable physician who can treat you right away.
Dog bite injuries can cause disfiguring scars that require plastic surgery. Nerve damage can be a continuing problem. And there is often deep psychological pain that requires therapy, especially when children are the victims. Dog attacks can also knock victims to the ground causing broken bones and other injuries.
Dog bite and dog attack victims are often small children and vulnerable elderly people. Insurance companies sometimes offer a quick settlement, but it is a good idea to have a Las Vegas personal injury attorney who understands the medical and psychological issues involved, and who will work for fair and just compensation.
Lawsuits filed over dog bites and similar injuries fall under personal injuries. The personal injury statute of limitation in Nevada is two years from the date of the injury.
Our Las Vegas dog bite lawyers believe that every dog bite deserves attention to avoid any injuries and pledge to help you get the compensation you deserve. Contact us today if you have any questions or to book a free case consultation.
