Experienced Las Vegas Animal Attack Attorney

Animal Attack Attorney Las Vegas and Henderson NV

What happens when “man’s best friend” viciously attacks you? As domesticated as we believe animals have become in our society, there is still the potential for an attack. Oftentimes those attacks leave long lasting physical and emotional scars of both the victim and the animal owner. State laws differ on what is considered a “dangerous breed” or “dangerous” animal which may affect your ability to make a claim for damages. Further, state laws differ on the liability of owners for the actions of their animals.

Dog bites can cause severe injuries and even infections if not treated properly. The general “one bite rule” may affect your ability to receive compensation for injuries suffered by the attack of an animal. If you have been attacked by an animal, you need an injury lawyer now. Contact the attorneys at Marshall Injury Law immediately to understand and protect your rights. The initial consultation is free so you have nothing to lose.

Most Frequently Asked Questions

The team at Marshall Injury Law is happy to answer any questions you may have.

What are the most common types of animal attacks?

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), dog bites are the most common type of animal attack. Around 4.7 million dog bites occur each year. Of those 4.7 million, 800,000 dog bites are serious enough to require medical attention. On average, 92% of fatal dog bite cases are caused by a male dog and 94% of those male dogs were not neutered.

Who is held responsible in an animal attack case?

If negligence is proven, the animal's owner can be held liable for its actions. While though are no specific laws that about who would be held as the responsible party if an animal attack occurs, there are ways to determine if the animal was at fault. There are many factors that are weighed when dealing with an animal attack, but our attorneys can help compile all of the information surrounding your injuries to put together an impactful case.

If I was injured by a dog bite in the past, am I still able to make a claim?

As long as the claim is filed within two years of the accident occurring, yes. Nevada's statute of limitations requires that any claim should be filed in this time frame or you cannot pursue legal action. It's important to contact an attorney straight away if you think that you could have a case. Call us today at (702) 489-5700 to set up a free consultation.
