FAQs Dog Bite Cases & Animal Attacks
According to the law, dog owners are responsible for their dog’s actions and homeowner’s insurance will pay for the damages. Dog bites account for about a third of homeowners’ insurance claims.
Nevada does not have specific dog bite laws in place like many other states. The “one bite free” rule that many states have also does not apply. If a person is attacked by a dog, the victim has the right to sue the dog’s owner for a personal injury. Since most dog bites occur on the property where the dog resides, these cases fall under premise liability.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has stated that at least 16 people die each year from dog bites. Overall, the CDC reports that almost 5,000,000 people are attacked each year by a dog and that almost one—fifth of those bites are serious enough to require intensive medical care. With such staggering facts, it is easy to see why dog bites are taken so seriously.
If your dog bites someone on property that you own, you may owe the person financial compensation.
You may also be required to report the bite to the Clark County Animal Control authorities. Even if your dog bites someone on property that you own, the fact that you’re on your own property may not be a defense.
If a dog bites someone in a home that you rent, you may have legal liability. Trespassing and provocation are recognized defenses to a dog bite in a rental home.
Physical injuries, property damage and pain and suffering are all types of compensation available for a dog bite that occurs in a rental home. Insurance may cover your legal liability.
Strict liability affects dog bite cases by making a dog owner legally liable for a bite any time the dog owner is in violation of dog laws. Even if a dog has no prior history of being aggressive, breaking a dog law is enough to create negligence per se for an owner. Negligence per se is a very high legal standard that is similar to strict liability, but allows the dog owner to rebut the presumption of liability.
It takes approximately 30-90 days for a dog bite settlement. A case that’s complex may take several months. The exact details in the case determine how long it takes for a dog bite settlement.
However, a dog bite settlement usually takes between 30 days and several months depending on the specific facts of the case. Please consult with an attorney to evaluate your specific case and settlement to give you an exact time.
The national average settlement for a dog bite injury is between $3,000 and $90,000.
An average dog bite settlement includes compensation for medical bills, damaged property, lost income, pain and suffering and more. The more severe your injuries and the longer your recovery time, the higher you can expect your compensation to be.
The value of your case may be more or less than the average settlement for a dog bite injury. Please consult with an attorney to evaluate your specific case and settlement to give you a fair estimate.
It is very important that everyone understands that all dogs can be dangerous. This is especially important to instill in small children who are the most common victim of dog attacks. Everyone should obey the following guidelines when they are around a strange dog:
- Do not quickly approach a dog you do not know. This may seem as if you are attacking the dog and they will react.
- Do not bother a dog that is eating or engaged in another activity. Dogs feel threatened and will “protect” their food or toys.
- Avoid making direct eye contact with an aggressive dog. Dogs find this as a challenge and are more apt to attack.
- Never approach a stray dog.
- Do not try to calm a barking dog that you do not know.
Aggressiveness in a dog is not restricted to any single breed or size of the dog. While some breeds of dogs can be more aggressive by nature, all breeds of dogs can attack if they feel threatened, are inured, or have been abused to the point of aggression.
If you have suffered a dog bite, you should schedule a consultation with a professional dog bite attorney. The injuries you received can often quickly add up to large medical bills and you may suffer other financial issues as a result. If your child was injured there may also be additional emotional harm connected to the attack.
Many insurance companies try to overlook the seriousness of a dog bite. This lack of compassion can further injure the victim. It is important to protect your rights with legal representation.
Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials
“I was involved in an accident driving along minding my own business and a young lady – I believe they instituted these new yellow flashing arrows and the way I see it she probably thought it was a yellow light, she tried to beat it and she came right into oncoming traffic. Another vehicle hit her and as they spun I tried to get in between them and they hit me. I was very happy with the settlement. I went to the right doctors. Everything went very well, I was very happy. We were told which collision place to use and we did. It was done very fast. The rental car was there immediately. Everyone that I dealt with was very professional and I enjoyed the experience as much as you can after a car accident.”
