Dog Bites

Phoenix Dog Bite Lawyers

Dog bites can lead to serious injuries and leave victims emotionally traumatized by the incident for days, months, or years. This is especially true in the case of children. Dog bites can result in lacerations, puncture wounds, bruising, torn skin, infections, and scarring. Where dogs knock victims down, such as children and smaller adults, it can result in broken bones, broken teeth, concussions, and more. In the worst cases, aggressive dogs, such as pit bulls, have been known to maul and kill victims, resulting in wrongful death

At Rack Law Group, our highly-experienced and skilled attorneys know how to hold negligent dog owners responsible for serious injuries caused by their animals. We engage in comprehensive investigative techniques to secure the evidence needed to support your personal injury dog bite claim. Our team can then aggressively negotiate on your behalf in insurance policy negotiations or in otherwise holding the negligent dog owner liable for the compensation to which you are entitled under Arizona law. This increases your ability to secure a fair and just result.

Dog Bite Cases in Arizona

Under Arizona law, dog owners are subject to strict liability when the actions of their pets result in injuries to others. This is covered in Arizona Revised Statute 11-1025 which states that this liability applies regardless of the dog owner’s lack of prior knowledge regarding the dog’s propensity to be aggressive. This means that the dog owner or his/her homeowner’s insurer can be responsible for paying your damages even if the dog has never previously bitten anyone. 

Strict liability in these cases applies on both public and private property as long as you did not provoke the dog. Thus, you will be entitled to compensation based on the facts of your case, which may include medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, emotional trauma, and more. Furthermore, dog owners can be guilty of negligence, such as letting their dogs off the leash in public areas, bringing a known aggressive dog to a dog park, violating local or state leash laws, allowing a dog to run free, and more.
