Dog Bite Injuries

Every year there are approximately 4 ½ million dog bites in America. Nearly a quarter of all dog bite injuries require medical attention. Some require surgery, others require reconstructive plastic surgery and many result in permanent scaring.

Dog bites are more common among young children for several reasons. A child may wander onto a property where the dog is keeping watch, they may be attacked by a dog that has wandered off the owner’s property, or they may become overly playful with the dog, causing the dog to become defensive and bite. Whatever the circumstances for the attack, a dog bite injury can be very traumatic, especially to children. It is important to seek immediate medical attention. In many instances, a psychologist can help you or your loved one heal emotionally, as well.

Dog Bite

In Arizona, the owner of the dog is responsible for injuries caused by their dog; whether it occurs on the owner’s property or elsewhere. The owner has a responsibility to take the necessary safety measures in restraining their dog. Therefore, if you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, the owner may be required to pay the medical bills and any other damages associated with your dog bite injury. In order to maintain the strict liability available under Arizona law, a one year statute of limitations is enforced. For this reason, it is important to contact The Robert P.
