Dog Bite Lawyers in Phoenix

Did you know that approximately one in three American households own at least one dog? Dogs can make the most wonderful companions, but they are still animals and may attack if they are improperly trained or act out of instinct. In fact, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 4.5 million dog bites occur in the U.S. each year, and about 800,000 of these require medical attention. Children and the elderly are at particular risk in dog attacks.

We have seen just how serious dog bite injuries can be, and we believe in providing the level of legal counsel that will help victims begin to put the pieces of their lives back together. We cannot go back and prevent the attack from occurring in the first place, but we can help you work toward a brighter future.
Dog Bite Claims in Arizona
If you or someone you love has been attacked by a dog, it is important to know your rights and how Arizona’s dog bite laws will apply. In accordance with Arizona Revised Statutes § 11-1025, dog owners are held strictly liable for injuries their animals inflict, unless the dog was provoked and attacked as a result. This means that they are responsible for your damages without you having to prove fault. There is a one-year statute of limitations on dog bite claims in Arizona, making it important to move quickly if you have been attacked.
