Dog Bite Compensation In Arizona
Arizona is a strict liability state regarding dog bite liability. If a dog bites you, the owner is liable for it, even if the owner did not know or did not have reason to know that the dog had vicious tendencies.
The only reason a dog owner wouldn’t be liable is if he or she could show that the dog was provoked in some way, and there are a few other small exceptions. But other than that, a dog bite on someone’s property will generally lead to liability on the part of the owner and compensation for the victim.
In most personal injury cases, the insurance company will offer the victim a settlement award. This award will be to cover the costs of the initial medical care resulting from the dog bite.
Although the insurance company offer will look attractive, it will not come close to covering the full extent of your injuries and losses. The long-term pain and suffering resulting from scarring and disfigurement, for example, or the lifelong costs associated with ongoing pain medication and care – all of these costs should be absorbed by the responsible party, not the victim.
At David Shapiro Law, PLLC, we will fight to get you the full measure of compensation to which you are entitled, including the lifelong medical expenses and pain and suffering.
