Dog bites happen. If you have been bitten or attacked by a dog, seek medical attention right away and contact your local animal control agency.
Once you are medically stable, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible so we can assist you with investigating and building your dog bite injury case. In Arizona, dog bites are subject to a one-year statute of limitations – which means if you do not settle your claim or file a lawsuit within one year from the date of the incident, you will lose your claim forever.
For these reasons, it is extremely important for you to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to pursue your dog bites case.

It is an unfortunate reality that many victims of dog attacks are reluctant to speak with a personal injury attorney for fear of appearing foolish or litigious. If you’ve been bitten by a dog, you may feel inclined to brush off the attack or negotiate personally with the dog owner.
These are mistakes. If you are unsure about the strength of your claim, speak with our dog bite lawyer about your situation. We have the experience, resources and tenacity you need to pursue full and fair compensation. When you work with us, we can:
- Thoroughly investigate your attack
