Seek Restitution for Dog-Related Injuries in Scottsdale
You might be entitled to compensation if you were hurt by a dog attack by filing a personal injury claim against the dog’s owner. Many dog bite victims in Scottsdale and the surrounding regions have been successfully represented by the knowledgeable team at JacksonWhite, under the direction of attorney Jared Everton.
Puncture wounds, eye injuries, broken bones, scars, and injuries to the head, neck, or face are just a few of the minor to serious dog bite injuries that can occur. It is critical to be knowledgeable of the applicable dog bite regulations if you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog.
Dog Bite Laws in Scottsdale, Arizona
A.R.S. 11-1025 states that the owner of a dog who attacks a person when that person is in a public place or legitimately on private property (including the dog owner’s property) may be held accountable for the victim’s damages. There is no correlation between dog breed and viciousness or aggression.
Arizona is a strict liability state, which means that dog owners can be held accountable for damages even if it is the dog’s first time biting someone. This is in contrast to states with “one bite free” policies. This means that the dog’s owner may be held accountable for any injuries or damages caused by the dog, regardless of whether or not the owner was aware of the dog’s unpredictable nature.
Recognizing Responsibility in Dog Bite Cases
If a dog bites someone, the dog owner may be exempt from liability under certain circumstances, such as if the victim provoked the dog. A.R.S. 11-1027 defines provocation as “circumstances that would be likely to provoke a dog.”
Other considerations are taken into account when assessing responsibility. Even if the victim was legally on the dog owner’s property and had been invited to the owner’s residence, the owner could still be held liable for the victim’s dog bite injuries. However, if a trespasser was bitten despite the owner posting warning signs about a hazardous dog on the property, it could affect the outcome of a claim for personal injury.
