The Aggressive Dogs And A Homeowners Responsibility
“Premises liability” refers to the responsibility that home and property owners have to pay damages to individuals who get injured on their property. Nevada law has established standards that require owners to maintain a safe environment for visitors. When owners fail to keep up their property or warn visitors of risks, guests and customers may file a premises liability claim.
Property hazards include not only slippery walking surfaces, but they also involve dangerous animals. If you or a loved one has been attacked by an aggressive dog or suffered a dog bite, you may be able to file a premises liability claim against the negligent property owner or renter.
Our legal team at Ace Law Group has helped Las Vegas residents who have been attacked by dogs on residential property. Our attorneys have over 40 years of collective experience advising clients on personal injury matters. When you consult with us, we will review the circumstances surrounding your dog attack and help you take the appropriate steps to prepare and file your suit.
Recovering from a dog attack can be costly because this traumatic event can cause emotional and physical injuries. The resulting lost wages and medical bills shouldn’t be taken from your bank account. However, if you don’t pursue legal action within two years’ time, they will be.
Proving Dangerous Conditions Led To Your Injury
Homeowner insurance usually covers damages associated with animal attacks. In order to create a strong claim concerning premises liability for homeowners, you will need to establish these facts:
- The attack took place on the homeowners property
- It could be predicted that the dog could create a substantial risk of injury
- It was the dog, and not the victim, that caused the injuries
- The owner did not act responsibly to warn or limit the risk the dog posed to visitors
