Dog Bites

Dog Bite Lawyer in Phoenix, AZ

Helping Children & Adults Injured in Dog Attacks

Every year, innocent children and adults are seriously injured or killed by dogs. Thousands are left scarred by dog bites. In Arizona, a dog owner is held to the high standard of strict liability, meaning he or she may be held accountable for any injuries that the dog causes – with or without a history of aggression. The only defense is provocation.

Strict liability has a shorter statute of limitations than a claim for negligence against the dog owner. To assure valuable rights are not lost, it is important to retain an experienced Phoenix dog bite attorney as soon as possible.

At Alex & Associates, our attorneys have handled dog bite cases for over 43 years. Please contact our office at (602) 483-6114 to arrange a free consultation. Se habla español.

Dog Bite Statistics

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year, and one in five dog bites results in injuries that require medical attention.

How big is the problem?

  • About 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year.
  • Almost one in five of those who are bitten (a total of 885,000 people) require medical attention for dog bite-related injuries.
  • In 2006, more than 31,000 people underwent reconstructive surgery as a result of being bitten by dogs.

The first thing to do if you are the victim of a dog bite is to immediately call 911. The 911 operator should alert emergency personnel and contact the animal rabies control unit. Animal rabies control will typically quarantine the dog for rabies and identify the dog owner and address. This is becoming increasingly important as dog owners are more frequently denying that they own the animal in question.
