Dog Bite Accidents in Las Vegas
‘Personal injury’ is defined as “the wrongful injury of one person through the fault of another.” Dog bite accidents in Las Vegas certainly fall into this category, and we at Gazda & Taydon have the experience and know-how to get you the compensation you deserve. A dog attack is often a highly-traumatic experience that can cause serious injuries and subsequent health problems.
Who is Responsible
Generally, the dog owner is liable when his or her dog bites another person and causes injury. Most homeowner insurance policies cover dog bites, and the owner pays for any medical bills resulting from the bite or bites. It is also possible that the person watching the animal–the “dog sitter”–will be liable if failure to properly watch the dog resulted in injury.
Dog Bites are no Joke
If you were attacked by a dog and injured, you may receive compensation for injuries, medical bills, pain and suffering, and missed time from work or lost wages. Additionally, the dog owner may face criminal charges if state dog bite laws were not followed. We take dog bites very seriously and will work hard to get you the compensation you or your family member deserves.
