When you attacked or bitten by a vicious dog, the details become muddled. Certain dog breeds are naturally more aggressive and dangerous than others, often inflicting injuries on individuals with no provocation whatsoever. Injuries sustained in these types of dog attacks can be disabling or even life-threatening. Some of these breeds include Rottweilers, pit bulls, German shepherds, huskies and chow chows. Not all dog bites and attacks are due to the breed of a dog; an experienced Arizona dog bite lawyer can attest to the fact that many owners do not train their dogs sufficiently, and that the viciousness or aggressiveness is often a learned behavior. We know that most dogs must be properly socialized so that strangers are not susceptible to these unexpected attacks.

Not all dog bites or attacks are inflicted by strange dogs. Experienced Arizona dog bite attorneys know that on occasion even a familiar dog, such as a neighbor's, may act out in an aggressive manner. You may be hesitant to sue; after all, it is your neighbor. The average person does not realize that, in most cases, the neighbor's homeowners' insurance will cover the dog owner's legal defense as well as monetary damages related to your injuries. When you or a family member are the victims of a dog bite injury, never hesitate to consult with a reputable Arizona dog attack lawyer.

While you may feel that the insurance adjuster will fairly compensate you for the injuries you have sustained, this is rarely the case. Our reputable Arizona dog attack attorneys will work aggressively on your behalf, investigating the details, interviewing potential witnesses and doing whatever is necessary to protect your rights.

At Thomas C. Wilmer, P.C. we know that most dogs are friendly and loving, "man's best friend" so to speak. However, our Arizona dog bite lawyers also know that a bite or attack by a vicious dog can leave victims with disfiguring or life-threatening injuries. Pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute, dog owners are strictly liable for the injuries caused by a bite. However, a shorter time limit to file suite applies and it is important you retain an experienced Arizona personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You have rights, and we work hard to protect them. Contact us today for a consultation regarding your case
