Lawyers Explain the Legal Rights of Arizona Dog Bite Victims

Legal Representation After an Arizona Dog Bite or Attack

The legal rights extended to dog bite victims hinge on the circumstances of the incident and the liability laws in the state where the attack takes place. In Arizona, strict statutory liability applies if the lawsuit is filed within the first year following the attack. This means that a dog's owner or another responsible party can be held liable for damages if his or her dog attacks, even if the dog had never exhibited vicious behavior or warning signs in the past.
