Dog bites can be painful, traumatic, and emotionally distressing experiences. According to the National Institutes of Health statistics, around 30 to 50 deaths in the United States are caused by dog bites every year.

Here is what to do if you find yourself in this unfortunate situation.

Some of the common dog bite injuries include:

Nevada does not have specific laws or statutes that address dog bites comprehensively.
