Sarpy County Dog Bite Lawyer
Serving Victims in Bellevue, Omaha, Lincoln, and all of Eastern Nebraska
A dog bite has the potential to cause serious injury. The animal's sharp canines can make deep puncture wounds, tear flesh, or even cause infections. Often, such harm requires medical attention that results in substantial expenses. If you were bitten by a dog and suffered injuries, you should not be responsible for paying associated costs. Fortunately, in Nebraska, you are entitled to take legal action against the dog's owner and seek to recover compensation for damages.

At Reagan Melton & Delaney, our Sarpy County lawyer is here to skillfully guide you through your case.

Nebraska Dog Bite Laws
The Nebraska dog bite law provides that dog owners are strictly liable for damages their pet causes. That means they can be held financially responsible regardless of whether or not they were negligent or intended to cause harm.
Additionally, Nebraska's dog bite law does not apply if a person was trespassing on someone else's property when the animal attacked.
If you were injured by a dog, after seeking medical care, reach out to our Sarpy County lawyers to discuss your case. We will analyze the situation and explain your legal options. Our team provides personalized representation, and we will walk you through the claims process and help prepare a compelling strategy for your specific situation.
Legal Action Against Dog Owner in NE
One of the most challenging aspects of dog bite cases is that owners (and by extension their insurance company) will do everything they can to prove that you may have provoked the animal or were somewhere you were not lawfully allowed to be at the time of the incident. The pushback you encounter can add even more stress to an already frustrating situation.
At Reagan Melton & Delaney, we fight hard to protect the rights of dog bite victims. When you choose us, we will comb through every detail and investigate the incident to prove the owner is liable for the attack. Additionally, we will examine your medical records to build a solid demand for compensation.
Whether your case can be settled with the dog owner's insurance company or must be tried in court, we will be ready to fight on your behalf.
