Las Vegas Dog Bite Lawyer
The accident attorneys of Paternoster Law Group are prepared to represent victims of vicious attacks and bites by dogs or other animals. Negligent and abusive pet owners can often be held responsible for the injury and damages sustained by a victim of a dog bite or an animal attack. The attorneys at Paternoster Law Group negotiate with the dog owners’ insurance companies to achieve the appropriate settlement for their clients and are prepared to take the case to trial if necessary.
Dog bite victims often require serious medical attention due to the scarring and chance for infection from disease or bacteria that the dog may carry. Many dog bites in the Las Vegas area require immediate medical attention, including antibiotics and plastic surgeons. Emergency treatment immediately after an incident and transportation to a medical facility is expensive but necessary for an animal-related attack. The attorneys at Paternoster Law Group can get you full compensation for injuries sustained by dog and bites and animal attacks that include complications such as:
- Deep lacerations
- Infections caused by bacteria and disease
- Extensive scarring
- Nerve damage
- Permanent or long-term physical pain
Injuries caused by dog bites can range from mild cuts to major lacerations, deep puncture wounds, and even death. Inattentive, abusive, or irresponsible dog owners are the most common cause of dog bites accidents and attacks. Careless owners can lose control of their pets easily. This lack of control causes a dangerous interaction between the animal and public. Most dog bites (or other animal attacks) involve one or more of the following:
- Irresponsible supervision of the animal
- Lack of medical care for the animal
- Abuse or mistreatment of the animal
Private investigators can obtain facts and build a strong case against the negligent party. Our firm will investigate the owner, before and after suit is filed, and will obtain expert testimony from professional medical staff to prove the extent of your injuries and prognosis for recovery.
