Las Vegas Dog Ordinances Intended to Keep Everyone Safe
January 18, 2013
Like most cities in the nation, Las Vegas has ordinances in place that require dog owners to keep their dogs properly restrained. Such regulations are intended to keep everyone safe, dogs and humans inclusive. However, despite the regulations, not all dog owners exercise responsible ownership, and that can often lead to injury should an attack occur. If you or a family member has been injured in a dog attack or other animal incident, a Las Vegas injury lawyer can analyze your case to determine the extent to which you may be eligible to receive financial compensation.
Dog owners may balk at having to restrain their dogs, believing that the dog is not dangerous and would never hurt anyone. However, even the gentlest of dogs can suddenly become aggressive for reasons that cannot be foreseen. Such was the case recently when a little 18-month-old boy and his grandmother were the victims of injury from a family dog. The child was bitten on the top of the head and around his forehead while the grandmother sustained an injury as she tried to help the boy. The animal was euthanized following the attack, and the grandmother said she had no idea why the dog attacked.
