Almost $1 million awarded after dog bites woman

Unfortunately, even though most dogs in the state of Nevada are friendly animals with responsible owners, some dogs can be hostile, aggressive and will attack when approached. Even dogs that have been trained and seem harmless can issue a painful bite without warning. Dog bites can cause very serious and permanent injuries. Recently, a woman in another state was awarded nearly $1 million from a successful lawsuit after suffering substantial injuries from a dog bite.

Recently, in Reno, an accident involving an alleged intoxicated driver left one woman dead.
