Dog bites can cause serious injuries and significant emotional trauma, particularly when the victims are young. When dog bites occur, Nevada victims may consider legal action in the form of a personal injury claim against the dog owner. As with any type of personal injury claim, it is important to understand what factors go into determining liability and fault with these types of accidents.
Premises liability is a term that refers to the responsibility of a property owner to provide a safe environment. This can apply to private homeowners, casino owners or owners of any other types of premises. When a Nevada resident is injured because of unsafe conditions, the property owner may be financially responsible under laws governing premises liability.
Premises liability claims pertain to incidents in which an individual is injured on the property of another and due to the negligence of the Nevada property owner and/or another party in possession of the property. From slipping on a wet floor to an attack from an aggressive dog, a successfully navigated premises liability claim may help you recover financial losses associated with the incident. You may benefit from seeking a legal opinion regarding the situation and possible legal remedies.
Premises liability cases pertain to Nevada individuals who may have been hurt because of negligent or irresponsible property owners. Premises liability cases can include slip-and-falls, dog bites, swimming pool accidents and more. When an individual has been injured because of negligent supervision or the unsafe conditions of a public place or private residence, there are legal options available.
Accidents that result in injury can happen at any time and pretty much anyplace. They can also occur for a variety of reasons. When the accident occurs on the premises of a Las Vegas business, the business owner may face claims seeking monetary damages. This puts them at risk of a premises liability lawsuit.
The third full week of May is National Dog Bite Prevention Week. However, regardless of the time of year, dog bite prevention is crucial to children, adults, postal workers and many other individuals across the country, including here in Las Vegas. Dog attacks may not happen as often as car accidents or other events, but they are more common than many Las Vegas residents may believe.
