More than 4 million dog bites occur in the United States each year and nearly 1 million require medical care. If you have been attacked by a dog, you may be entitled to recover damages for your losses. After you have been attacked, it is in your best interests to speak immediately with an experienced and aggressive Arizona dog bite lawyer at The Bradshaw Firm. Our attorneys
have years of extensive experience handling dog bite cases.

Arizona applies strict liability when dogs attack and injure others. This means there is no such thing as one free bite for the animal or disputed liability. The dog owner is “strictly liable” for the injuries caused by their dog. The law does not allow the dog owner to dispute who was at fault. The owner is automatically responsible to pay for your damages.

Scarring is often a serious consequence of a dog bite. The most frequent target of dog attacks is the face, including the lips, nose, and cheeks, causing approximately 44,000 facial injuries treated in the United States each year. These wounds can result in disfiguring scars that can have lifelong physical consequences, especially for children. Scars on other areas of the body also often result in extensive medical treatments, surgeries, and permanent disfigurement. In addition to physical injuries, a dog bite victim may sustain severe mental and emotional distress. If the victim is a young child, which unfortunately is often the case, the likelihood of a long lasting fear of dogs, fear of leaving the house, and separation anxiety are even higher.

If you are a victim of a dog attack, you may be entitled to compensation for past and future medical treatment expenses, past and future income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. When the negligent party refuses to take responsibility for his or her actions, we have the litigation techniques necessary to hold them accountable. We can take your case from beginning to end and fight aggressively to help you collect the damages you deserve.
