Dog Bite Accidents
LIABILITY IN DOG BITE CASES
If you have been bitten by a dog, even if you know the dog’s owner, it is important that you call an attorney immediately to ensure that your rights are protected. Arizona has statutory strict liability law on dog bites, and the first bite counts: there is no “one free bite” for a dog. In addition, the owner of the dog is liable for damages suffered by the person bitten. It is not necessary to prove the dog was vicious or had acted viciously previously.
Most often a dog bite results in injuries to the hand, face, or neck, and can result in punctures, cuts, as well as tissue loss, fractured and even crushed bones. A dog bite victim very often will suffer psychological trauma as a result of the incident.
