Spending time with an animal can and should be a joyous and wonderful experience. However, sometimes animals attack, and that can lead to horrible injuries. When a dog is not properly trained or is not properly restrained and you or your family member suffers because of their attack, you have legal rights against the owner.
In the state of Arizona, dog owners can be held liable for their animal's actions if the dog is in a public place or if you were attacked while legally on the dog owner's private property. Not only that, but the dog owner is still liable for your injuries even if they had no prior knowledge of their dog being vicious. If you've been injured by a dog, you have legal options and our personal injury attorneys can help you seek financial restitution.
