Injury Liability of Dog Owners
Were you attacked by someone else’s dog? You may be able to recover compensation. Watch this video by Las Vegas dog bite attorney Craig Murphy to learn about injury liability of dog owners to find out.
If you have been attacked and injured by a dog in an attack, you’re going to want to know if the owner is responsible for that, under Nevada law. The answer to that question depends on the history of that particular animal. If that dog has attacked and bit someone before, then you have a legitimate claim against that owner. However, if that dog has never shown any violent tendencies or propensities in the past, has never attacked anybody, then under Nevada law, that owner may not be responsible to you, unless it is an animal that is a dangerous or vicious animal. Typically, we all know pit bulls have a tendency, in that breed, to be known to attack. So, no matter how nice that pit bull and no matter if it has or hasn’t attacked other people in the past, you may have a claim.
If someone has trained their dog to be an attack guard dog, there may be responsibility, even though that dog has never attacked anybody before. The only way to make a real determination of whether or not someone is responsible for your injuries from a dog attack is to contact an attorney and do what is necessary to fully investigate the claim and make that determination
