What would you do if your dog bit someone in Arizona?
If your dog bit someone in Arizona, you may be liable for the person’s injuries. But just because your dog bit someone does not guarantee you will have to pay for their medical bills and any other expenses related to a dog bite.
Arizona dog bite laws cover a wide range of issues. In terms of liability, the law states, “The owner of a dog which bites a person when the person is in or on a public place or lawfully in or on a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog, is liable for damages suffered by the person bitten, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of its viciousness.”
A dog bite case can be complicated
Such language might sound straightforward. But there are so many factors to consider in a dog bite case. Was the person bit by the dog on your property without your permission? Did the person do something to provoke your dog? Did you warn the person to stay away and not touch your pet? These are important questions that could make a big difference in your defense.
