Liability in Dog Attacks
Under Arizona law as stated in Arizona Revised Statue ARS 11-1025, strict liability is imposed on dog owners when their pet attacks someone else. If you have suffered injuries while lawfully on private property or in a public place, you can file a claim for damages compensation by the pet owner.
To gain your dog attack compensation, you do not have to prove that the owner was aware or should have been aware that their dog would attack. In fact, you do not even have to prove negligence on the part of the dog owner. The two circumstances that can keep them from being held accountable for your dog bites include you provoking the dog to attack you or if you were attacked while you were illegally trespassing on someone else’s property.
For a successful dog bite case, you will need evidence that the dog attack occurred. You and your Phoenix dog bite lawyer will review this evidence. You should include documentation of eyewitness accounts, police report, medical treatment files and photos of your injuries. You will also need to prove which dog attacked you and who is the dog’s owner. The court requires this proof.

Possible Damages Caused by a Dog Attack
Dogs are still animals, even though we make them our companions. They have animal instincts, sharp teeth and claws meant to tear animal flesh. If a large dog attacks, it is capable of causing terrible injuries. The injuries may be minor or they could include a long term in the hospital or even death.
Some injuries suffered by attacked victims include:
- Deep tears and cuts in the flesh
- Muscle damage
- Fractured bones
- Neck and spinal cord injury
- Blood loss
Emotional distress and long term trauma are common after dog attacks. These make the damage longer lasting, even beyond healing of physical wounds. Although money cannot fix all of the wounds, it can be used to aid in healing of both physical and emotional results.
Dog Attack Recovery
You need immediate medical attention after a dog attack. A doctor needs to examine your injury in order to know the true effect of the bite. Besides getting treatment you need, you need a doctor’s examination for evidence to hold the dog’s owner accountable for your damages. If you are at a hospital for emergency department care, you need to remember to get a copy of the medical report and the names of your doctors providing treatment. Your doctor’s examination is some of the best evidence of injuries needed for compensation in your case.
Dog attacks are expensive for the victims. It can cost you thousands of dollars just to have your injuries treated. It usually costs more if you need to stay in the hospital for a lengthy period of time. The injuries may keep victims from going to work, leading to lost income while medical bills cost more and more.
By filing a lawsuit against the dog owner, you can recover payment for your medical bills. You also can gain compensation for lost income, lost future earnings and your current and future pain and suffering. Although money will not heal all of the trauma and injuries you experienced in the dog attack, it can compensate you for damages by holding the owner accountable.
