Dog Bite Injury
Dedicated Phoenix dog bite lawyer James Green discusses what to do if you or someone you love has suffered a dog bite injury in Arizona.
One of my neighbors told me that she was bit by a dog in our neighborhood. She was asking questions like, “What should I do about it? What can I do about it?” Those types of things. The first thing that I would want to know if I was representing somebody that was bit by a dog was, if you asked the owner questions about the dog. Has the dog ever shown a propensity for violence in the past? Has that dog ever bit anyone else? Does the dog have all of its shots? Does it have its rabies shots? You want to make sure of those things.
I think the key is really learning about the dog, whether or not the dog had a propensity for violence, whether or not the dog has ever tried to attack anyone else in the past, and those types of things. Because then it can really show that the owner had knowledge of the dog’s viciousness or propensity for violence. Then the owner at that point would have had a duty to take action to make sure that the dog doesn’t bite anybody else. Those are the questions that I would want to know and that I would encourage you to ask if you’re ever bitten by a dog.
