Demerath Law is the top Grand Island dog bite lawyer.
Dogs and pets provide loyal companionship and ask little in return from their owners. What is required of all pet owners is that they prevent their animals from attacking innocent bystanders. When the pet owner violates that requirement, people are often left seriously injured. If you've suffered an animal attack, call the Larry Demerath. He has devoted his practice to helping victims of all injuries, including animal attacks and dog bites.
Nebraska law is generally considered favorable to victims of animal attacks. The relevant Nebraska law reads as follows: " Dogs are hereby declared to be personal property for all intents and purposes, and the owner or owners of any dog or dogs shall be liable for any and all damages that may accrue (1) to any person, other than a trespasser, by reason of having been bitten by any such dog or dogs and (2) to any person, firm, or corporation by reason of such dog or dogs killing, wounding, injuring, worrying, or chasing any person or persons or any sheep or other domestic animals belonging to such person, firm, or corporation. Such damage may be recovered in any court having jurisdiction of the amount claimed."
