Dog Bite Injury Attorneys Serving Clients Throughout Arizona
Smart, responsible dog owners know that dogs are like people in many ways — dogs have their own distinct personalities and need lots of love and care. Unfortunately, when their needs are not met, dogs can cause harm to other people.
In many cases, dog bites happen because the dog owner failed to take proper steps to protect other people from the dog’s aggressive or fearful temperament. When that happens, dog bite victims need to know their options for resolving the situation and getting the compensation they need to move forward.
At SG Law, we help people obtain compensation for medical expenses and other costs resulting from pet-related injuries, including bites and knock-downs.

Coping With The Pain And Cost Of A Dog Bite
Dog bites can be extremely serious. The effects can be physical and psychological. For many dog bite victims, particularly children, the attack could result in a fear of dogs that lasts a lifetime. That is a very sad outcome — because dogs can be truly loving companions, and no one should be deprived of that love and comfort because another dog owner was negligent.
Victims of dog bites may also need emergency medical treatment, as well as antibiotics and other medications. In some cases, dog bites result in permanent scarring that requires multiple rounds of reconstructive surgery. All of this medical care is very expensive, and dog bite victims may be entitled to compensation for the costs.
Exploring Your Options For Compensation
At SG Law, we know personal injury law and insurance law inside and out. We can review the facts of your case, including any insurance matters, and help you determine the best path forward. For example, some dog owners have homeowners insurance policies that cover dog bites. That policy could be a source of compensation for the dog bite victim.
