Dog Owner’s Liability
Arizona state law spells out the liability of the owner of the dog in a case like this. If the victim of a dog bite is in a public place, the dog owner is liable. Or if the victim has the legal right to be on private property, including on the property of the dog owner, the dog’s owner is liable as well.
Under state law, the dog owner does not have to have knowledge of the potential viciousness of the dog, nor does the dog have to be proven to have been vicious in the past.
Once a dog owner is found to be liable for your injuries, you have the right to seek compensation for a variety of items, including:
- Medical bills now
- Future medical care costs
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Reduced quality of life
- Permanent scarring
- Loss of ability to move injured limbs freely
- Long term pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
