Arizona Law on Dog Bites
Arizona dog owners are strictly liable if their dog bites and injures another person. (Exceptions might apply if the victim was trespassing on the dog owner’s property, or if the victim actually provoked the dog, such as by harassing or taunting it.)
Most dog bite claims are covered by the dog owner’s homeowners' insurance policy or other coverage that the dog owner may have. Contact us today to get the compensation you deserve if you or a loved one have been injured by a dog bite.
