dog bite liability | Phoenix Personal Injury Law Blog - Breyer Law Offices, P.C.
As experienced Arizona dog bite accident attorneys, we know that many victims do not understand their rights, or the limitations of their rights, when it comes to a serious dog bite injury. Although multiple statutes under Arizona law, including ARS 11-1020 and ARS 11-1025, provide dog bite victims with available recourse, victims must also be aware of the statute of limitations. According to state law, lawsuits regarding dog bite injuries, like all other accident injuries, must be filed within the state statute of limitations.
The state statute of limitations for strict liability is as little as one year. If it is a police dog, it can be as little as 180 days. Victims who are minors may have different statutes. We always recommend speaking to a lawyer about statute of limitations so you know your legal rights.
