Negligence Claims For Dog Bites

While most dogs are friendly and known as mans best friend, they are also known to bite and attack people without warning. Dogs can be dangerous to people of all ages, whether they are familiar with them or they are strangers. Because dog bites often occur suddenly, unsuspecting victims are often unprepared to defend themselves and the dog bites can result in serious and sometimes devastating injuries. If you or a loved one have been bitten bu a dog and suffered injuries, you may be entitled to compensation.

The dog bite attorneys at Bighorn Law of Arizona have years of experience helping dog bite victims and may be able to hold the dog’s owner liable for your injuries and losses. While some states require that dog bite victim’s prove that an owner was negligent, Arizona has strict liability laws when it comes to dog owners when their dogs bite others. Arizona also has strict liability on dog owners when their dogs get out of their yard or enclosure and are at large when they bite someone. If you or a loved one have suffered injuries as the result of a dog bite, contact us today for a free consultation to review all of your legal options.

 

Compensation For Dog Bite Injuries

In Arizona under the state’s strict liability statuets, dog bite claims must be filed against the dog owner within one year of the incident. This is also referred to as the “statute of limitations”. Personal injury claims may be filed within two years but that also requires the plaintiff to prove fault. Dog bite victims can seek compensation for injuries and property damage caused by the dog attack. They can also seek additional damages if they are able to prove negligence. If the injuries sustained by the victim are fatal, surviving family members may also recover additional costs for burial and funeral expenses.

Who Is Liable For My Dog Bite?

Proving Who's At Fault

Dog owners are legally liable to pay damages to victims if they are legally on public or private property, including the dog owner’s property under Arizona’s strict liability statutes. The exception would be if someone is bitten by a police or military dog when the dog was engaged in official activities, like a criminal investigation or while trying to apprehend a suspect. While strict liability applies to dog owners, it does not apply to others who may be in possession or control of a dog when it bites or attacks someone. There may be other legal remedies available for the dog bite victim if this occurs in which non-owners have liability.
