Personal Injury Attorney Wells

Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Wells

Wells is a small community in northeast Nevada’s Elko County – a short distance away from the Utah state line.

Located at the junction of Interstate 80 and State Route 93, Wells was historically known as a railroad town, which dates back to its origins and the development of the Transcontinental Railroad. This small city has grown today to measure nearly 7 square miles in size and is home to nearly 1,300 people – more than 55 percent of which are female.

Wells might be a small community, but its population includes people with pets, which raises the risk for animal attack or injury, such as a dog bite injury. Domesticated animals are typically trained to minimize the risk of these types of incidents, but accidents do happen. Unfortunately, these types of accidents often result in serious physical injury and/or emotional trauma, and can escalate to become extraordinarily stressful situations.

Dog Bite Injuries in Wells and Elko County

Dog bite injuries are very different. Some victims may suffer minor cuts, bruises or other superficial injuries, while others can experience more devastating results, as in long-term muscle damage or permanent disability.

Regardless of the type of injury, a court will conduct an examination to determine if the perpetrating dog was “dangerous”.

According to the state of Nevada’s law regarding dog bite incidents, a dog may be defined as dangerous if:

  • The dog has been involved in two separate, uncalled-for attacks in a period of 18 months
  • The dog’s actions are hostile in nature

Under Nevada law, a dog will not be considered dangerous if its behavior justified by the defense of itself or property from someone who intends to commit a crime.

However, a dog may be considered “vicious” if:

  • The dog perpetrated severe bodily harm without any known provocation
  • The dog kills someone without any known provocation

While many dog bite cases are a result of an accident, there are cases that involve dog owners who intentionally possess aggressive, vicious animals. Owners meeting those criteria could be charged with a felony, but that is determined through an investigation conducted by lawyers and other legal personnel. Ultimately, the goal is to determine and at-fault party and assist the victims in their recovery process.

If you have been involved in a dog bite incident, and have suffered some form of injury, you should consider reaching out to a Las Vegas dog bite attorney. Experienced legal counsel can help you decide what course of action is best for you in your recovery.
