Bristol, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2019 -- As a "stand your ground" state, Nevada's laws allow residents to use levels of both non-deadly and deadly force in self-defense. The amount of force that can be used within the law depends on several circumstances. As the most reputable violent crime attorney in Las Vegas, The Law Offices of Benjamin Nadig have recently explained Nevada's self-defense laws.

The law in Nevada permits the use of force in self-defense when the non-aggressor reasonably believes that they are facing an urgent threat of bodily harm. It's only legally acceptable for the non-aggressor to use no more physical force than necessary to deflect a threat. Nevada even gives victims the option to fight back in self-defense if they have had the opportunity to run away and avoid conflict. However, an act of self-defense must be reasonable and lawful.

Concerning killing in self-defense, there are several conditions by which a homicide is justifiable. First, the danger must be pressing and urgent, and the nonaggressor must have faced death or severe bodily harm. Next, a reasonable person in the nonaggressor's position would also have feared for their life. Finally, the nonaggressor must not be seen to have been acting out of revenge when the homicide occurred.

Nonaggressors are also protected by law if they are defending a family member, a friend, or anyone in imminent danger. Nevada laws make no distinction between acting in defense of another or of oneself. Nevada is a state that firmly believes in giving people the right to defend themselves against threats and danger. The law will protect anyone, even if they have committed homicide, as long as the murder was committed in defense against similar levels of danger.
