The Jensen Phelan Law Firm is proud to announce that one of our lawyers, Sean Phelan, was recently quoted in an article published by Inc. Magazine. The article discusses a recent dog bite incident on a Southwest Airlines flight, and Mr. Phelan’s comments explain Arizona’s strict liability law which makes dog owners liable anytime an attack occurs.
As Mr. Phelan explains in the article, strict liability places responsibility on the dog owner, even when they make the necessary efforts to prevent any harm from occurring. According to Mr. Phelan, there are no exceptions to this law for service or assistance animals.
Dog bite injuries can be traumatic events, resulting in serious injuries to the victim. In many instances, these attacks can result in disfigurement as well, especially when the victim is attacked in the face.
