Phoenix, Arizona Dog Bites
Phoenix Dog Bite Lawyer: Protecting you and your loved ones
More than 1,000 dog bite victims seek medical attention in emergency rooms throughout America every day. Suffering a dog bite may seem humorous in television sitcoms, but to the victim of a serious dog bite or animal attack, the scarring and disfigurement, pain and medical treatment can be fatally serious. When the dog bite seriously injures a child, the emotional and physical wounds can last a lifetime. Dog bite cases often include a lawsuit as well as a criminal offense on the part of the owner of the dangerous animal. Owners of dangerous breeds, such as pit bulls, rottweilers, and German shepherds, in particular, are subject to strict liability when they cannot control their animals.

In most cases, no attorney’s fees unless you recover money damages
The personal injury trial law firm of Zachar Law Firm is ready to help you fight for full and fair compensation for medical expenses and punitive damages after suffering a serious dog bite or animal attack. If you have been bitten, don’t take the dog bite lightly. You must seek medical attention right away. Dog bites often cause dangerous infections that may not become a medical problem until several days following the bite. Even if you know the animal and its owner quite well, gather all of the information that you can. Don’t accept a private settlement offer. In most cases, the owner’s homeowner’s insurance will often cover the cost of damages.
When the animal didn’t bite but caused an injury
Under recently adopted Arizona personal injury law, an animal does not necessarily have to bite you for its owner to be held liable for your injuries. When you are injured while successfully trying to avoid being bitten or attacked, the owner may still be held liable to compensate you for damages.
