Dog bites and animal attacks can leave victims with painful, lasting injuries. Children are particularly vulnerable to attacks by dogs, which can leave them with psychological trauma in addition to physical injuries.

A Violent History Is Not Required To Prove Liability
Unlike some states, Arizona follows the rule of strict liability. That is, a dog owner can still be held liable for his or her dog’s actions, even if the dog has never bitten another person or does not have a violent history. However, the flip side of this rule is that a percentage of the blame may be leveled at the victim, and any compensation award will be reduced by that percentage if the victim is found to be at least partly at fault.
Working Hard To Help You Recover The Compensation You Need And Deserve
Our lawyers will work hard to ensure that the dog owner is held liable for the attack. We will also work closely with you to help determine your medical needs, including any ongoing treatments to help reduce scarring, as well as any psychological therapy that may be appropriate following an attack. You can rest assured that we will serve as your zealous advocates to help you recover the full amount of compensation you need and deserve.
