Arizona Dog Bite Attorneys

Arizona has strict liability laws on dog bites. ARS 11-1025 provides that dog owners are strictly liable for bites and resulting damages. So long as the victim is lawfully in a public or private place—including the dog owner’s property—the dog owner is strictly liable for dog bites and resulting damages. Anyone caring for the dog at the time of the attack is equally liable. Dog owners, dog care takers, and home insurance companies are all responsible for medical costs, lost income, pain, and suffering in dog attacks.

Arizona Dog Attack Attorneys on Your Side

After a dog attack, home insurance companies will try to shift blame and minimize the value of your dog bite claim. Home insurance agents are eager to get you on the phone and record your conversations while twisting your words. Don’t speak with them until you consult an attorney. Only your San Tan injury lawyer shares your interest in maximizing your financial recovery and don’t let insurance companies take advantage of clients.

 What to do After a Dog Attack in Arizona

The steps taken after a dog attack are critical in preserving the value of your Apache Junction injury claim. To ensure your Queen Creek injury lawsuit is secure, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Visit a hospital or doctor’s office.
Not only is this crucial to your health and safety. Receiving prompt medical attention preserves and documents your dog bite injury claim. Medical exams provide compelling evidence and start an injury treatment plan.

Step 2: Call Animal Control to report the incident.
They’ll document your case, which provides excellent evidence in seeking an injury settlement. Document the dog bite incident by recording your own recollection, taking photos and video, and writing down witness names.

Step 3: Don’t speak with insurance agents.
It’s important to let your Chandler personal injury lawyers speak with insurance on your behalf. Insurance agents record phone calls and use your recordings to dispute liability and losses.

Step 4: Seek legal guidance from dog bite attorneys.
Soon after the dog bite or dog attack incident, it’s important to seek expertise from personal injury attorneys, who will organize, process, and protect your dog attack claim.

Arizona Homeowners and Renters Insurance Coverage in Dog Attacks

It’s important to have knowledgeable dog bite attorneys to investigate all sources of compensation. With dog bites, the most common compensation source is homeowner’s insurance. Regardless of where the dog attack happened, home insurance provides a source for compensation. Homeowner’s and renter’s insurance will cover damages up to the policy limits, which is typically in the hundreds of thousands. A dog owner is only responsible for damages that exceed a policy’s limit.

Common Arizona Dog Attack Injuries

Permanent Scarring and Disfigurement

The most tragic injuries from dog attacks are scarring and disfigurement—especially to heads, faces, necks, and hands. Plastic surgery is often needed to prevent scarring or disfigurement. Plastic surgery can be costly and health insurance may refuse to cover cosmetic surgery.

Cuts and Lacerations

Incision wounds are the most reported injuries in dog bite cases in the state of Arizona and around the U.S. Although cuts might appear minor, the area sometimes infects causing serious injuries and infections. Medical attention is needed when any sign of infection is noticed.
