Dog Bite Injuries
The Gregory Law Group has over 25 years experience handling dog bite claims. Our attorney and paralegal team work together to help take the stress from you after you or a loved one has suffered an injury that happened after an encounter with a dog, and to help you achieve a substantial settlement that is fair and reasonable.
In Arizona, dog owners are "strictly liable" for injuries that are caused by their dog. This means that the dog owner is automatically liable for any injuries his/her dog caused as long as the attack was unprovoked. Injuries suffered from a dog bite may be severe, and can result in catastrophic injury, including the loss of a limb.
Let us help you receive what you deserve. The Gregory Law Group has significant experience litigating against dog owners. We understand the trauma that you go through after a dog bite, and we know how to help you receive a fair and substantial settlement.
What To Know About Dog Bite Cases
Not all dog bite cases are the same. You might be attacked by a neighbor's dog that you are familiar with. You might be attacked by an unknown animal that does have a known owner. You can be attacked in a home, even your own home, or in a public place.
The owner of the dog does not need to know about the attack by their dog in order to be liable, and you do not need to show any negligence on the part of the dog owner. In order to show that a dog owner is liable, you simply need to establish that your injuries were caused by the owner's dog.
Statute of Limitations
In Arizona, you have one year from the date of the dog bite to file your lawsuit. If you don't file your lawsuit within the one year period following the dog bite, you will have waived your right to file a lawsuit. It is therefore imperative that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after a dog bite in order to receive the legal advice necessary to preserve your legal rights.
