In Arizona, owners of dogs are strictly liable for dog bites and attacks, meaning the victim of a dog bit does not have to prove that the dog owner did anything wrong. The only burden on the victim of a dog bite is prove they were bitten or attacked. To avoid liability, the owner of the dog has to prove the victim of the dog bite “provoked” the dog. The dog bite lawyers at the Folger Law Firm have the skill and experience to obtain the compensation victims of dog bites deserve.
Victims of dog bites may suffer lacerations, bruising, bone fractures, muscle and nerve damage, disfigurement, scars, infection, rabies, and even death. In addition, a dog bite victim often suffers from psychological damages such as nightmares, post-traumatic stress syndrome, humiliation and embarrassment. On behalf of its dog bite clients, the Folger Law Firm will pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, future earnings, future medical care, permanent scarring, disfigurement, mental distress, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
The dog bite lawyers at the Phoenix based Folger Law Firm accept dog bite cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning our clients do not pay us anything unless we win the case.
