When a Dog Bites, Who Pays?
Phoenix, Arizona, Attorneys Helping Dog Bite Victims
Legal action can be a good way to hold responsible parties accountable for the pain, lost income, scarring, and medical bills caused by a dog bite. At the Phoenix law offices of Solomon & Relihan, we represent dog bite victims, helping them get the compensation they need to get better.
Dog owners. Under Arizona law, dog owners or the people responsible for the dog at the time of the dog bite are almost strictly liable for the damages caused, including medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
Insurance companies. Many times, homeowner’s insurance or renter’s insurance policies provide coverage that pays for the injuries caused by a dog bite. As lawyers, part of our thorough examination of your situation includes examining all options available to you. If an insurance policy provides coverage, we will help you create an effective legal strategy accordingly.
Landlords. Sometimes, under Arizona law, the landlord can be held responsible for the dog bite if he had knowledge of a dangerous dog existing on the property.
