What will an attorney do to help this case?

A Prescott dog bite injury lawyer is going to be an incredible advocate on your behalf. Often, dog bite victims lack the resources necessary to stand up to aggressive insurance carriers. An attorney can use the resources of their firm to:

  • Ensure that all evidence that proves liability has been obtained and presented to insurance carriers or at-fault parties.
  • Work with trusted medical and economic experts to help calculate your total expected losses.
  • Send a demand letter to insurance carriers to counter any inadequate settlement offers.

How often do dog bite incidents happen and what are common injuries?

According to data available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we can see that nearly 800,000 people seek medical care each year across the country due to dog bite incidents. Unfortunately, more than 50 percent of these victims are children. Dog bite injuries are often severe and can include:

  • Severed arteries, muscles, veins, or tendons
  • Severe lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Avulsions
  • Finger amputations
  • Major blood loss
  • Broken or crushed bones
  • Significant scarring and disfigurement

Arizona’s dog bite laws

The state of Arizona operates under a “strict liability” law when it comes to dog bites. That means that a dog owner can be held liable for the bite regardless of whether or not the dog has ever bitten anybody before or shown a propensity for aggression. As long as the victim did not provoke the dog and was on public property or was lawfully on private property when the bite occurred, the owner can be held liable. This differs from how other states handle these cases, where there often must be a history of aggression on the part of the dog before the owner can be held liable.
