Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A 91-year-old woman was injured after she was
attacked by two family dogs in Henderson, Nevada. The woman was trying to stop
a fight between a Rottweiler and Doberman breed dogs when she was attacked.
The victim suffered critical injuries to her face and arms and rushed
to a local hospital to undergo surgery. Authorities reported that it is
unclear what caused the dogs to fight and they were taken into custody
by the city’s animal control. Police reported that the dogs belonged
to a relative of the victim and they weren’t sure if the owner would
Dog bites are not only scary, but they can be severe. It’s reported
that 86% of attacks induce bodily harm, especially if it’s a breed
that is prone to attacks. It’s also estimated that there are four
times as many dog bite-related emergency room visits in rural areas versus
urban areas. You might be concerned if your family pet could attack and
harm you or a loved one. Keep in mind that the temperament of a dog can
change, so it’s important to keep an eye on them if they’re
in a new environment, playing with kids or getting older. Also pay attention
to any strange dogs that might be in your yard, on a walk or out in public.
Don’t try to pet a dog you’ve never seen and always keep children
away from them. If you or a loved one is injured due to a dog bite or
attacks, contact a personal injury attorney immediately. An attorney will
investigate your case and determine if you have grounds to pursue legal
action for your injuries.
