Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
Dog bites and animal attacks can leave victims with physical and emotional scars. It is not just about the physical injury, but the ensuing trauma, medical bills, and potential lifestyle changes can be overwhelming.
Dog Bite Law in Nevada
In Nevada, dog owners are liable for injuries caused by their animals if they were negligent in the way they kept or controlled the animal, such as allowing it to roam freely off-leash in a public space or unfenced yard. Additionally, dog owners in Nevada are liable for any damages caused by their pets if they had prior knowledge of the dog’s vicious behavior. While it’s not necessary to prove that the owner was negligent in this instance, it is necessary to prove that the dog owner knew, or should have known, of the dog’s dangerous propensities. This can be a particularly complicated aspect of a dog bite claim in Nevada, and it’s an area where the assistance of a skilled and experienced personal injury lawyer can prove especially helpful.
This is where Real Injury Attorney comes in. Our skilled team will meticulously investigate the circumstances surrounding your case, gathering compelling evidence that can demonstrate the owner’s foreknowledge of the dog’s dangerous nature or prove the owner’s negligence if applicable. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to pursuing justice for our clients.
Dog Bite Law in Florida
In contrast to Nevada, Florida’s dog bite law operates under even stricter rules against the dog owner. Here, a dog owner is liable if their dog bites another person, regardless of whether the dog owner had prior knowledge of the dog’s viciousness and without requiring negligence on the part of the owner. However, there are some exceptions to this rule, such as when the victim was trespassing or somehow provoked the dog. A dog bite victim’s comparative fault can also be used to reduce the amount of their recovery if they are considered partly to blame for the attack by their own negligence or carelessness.
