The Country Lawyer, P.C. Representing The Injured Throughout Arizona

Dog Bite Injury Attorney For Sierra Vista

Have You Been Bitten by a Dog?

Although known as man's best friend and beloved by millions of Americans, unfortunately, there are dogs that are dangerous and a hazard to other people. Thousands of people annually are admitted to hospitals with severe dog bites. Sadly, almost half of those are children under the age of 12. These dog bite injuries can lead to hospitalization and surgeries, leaving both physical and mental scars.

If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog and seriously injured, it is crucial to contact a personal injury attorney who can determine ownership of the dog and conduct the necessary investigation so as to determine possible means for compensation. According to Arizona statutes, Sections 11-1020 and 11-1025.A enforce strict liability on the owner of a dog that bites a victim. It goes further to impose liability on anyone who was responsible for the dog at the time the dog bit someone. So anyone caring for or exercising a dog could also be held liable for damages.

The Country Lawyer, P.C. can investigate your dog bite attack to determine if anyone besides the dog owner, such as a groomer, boarding facility or even a veterinarian whose care the dog was in may also be held liable for any damages.
