Common Dog Bite Injuries and Their Compensation
It is important to retain a lawyer after a dog attack due to the serious nature of related personal injuries. Dog attacks are violent events that can lead to life-threatening injuries and permanent impacts on the victim. From soft-tissue damage to fatal injuries to the neck and face, an aggressive dog can cause many injuries in seconds. A dog attack lawyer can increase your chances of receiving fair compensation for your various injuries in Arizona.
- Puncture wounds
- Avulsions (lost skin)
- Physical disfigurement
- Permanent scarring
- Wrongful death
Compensation for dog bite victims in Arizona can include full payments for past and future medical bills, scar reduction surgeries or therapies, physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost quality of life, permanent scarring or disfigurement, loss of income, legal fees, and any property damage repairs. At Torgenson Law, we use proven tactics to fight for maximum compensation for our dog bite injury clients. You could be eligible for a significant amount from the dog owner’s insurer depending on the circumstances.
What Are the Arizona Dog Bite Laws?
Arizona’s dog bite statute mandates strict liability, meaning dogs do not get one free bite before owners must accept liability. Pet owners in Arizona will be legally responsible for dog bites even with no prior history of the pet attacking other people or pets. If the person owns the dog, and the dog attacked you, that person will owe you compensation (with very limited exceptions). Strict liability laws make it easier for dog bite victims to obtain compensation, but fighting for a fair amount often requires assistance from a lawyer. A lawyer can negotiate with insurance companies that are undervaluing your losses or engaging in bad faith practices on your behalf to ensure maximum compensation.
