A dog attack can be terrifying and may leave a victim with serious injuries that can result in scarring, infection, disfigurement and even death. In addition to dealing with the physical pain and stress of expensive medical bills, a dog bite victim will also likely suffer emotional trauma in the wake of the attack.
Phoenix injury lawyer Bob Goldwater is committed to helping dog bite victims recover following a serious attack and injury. Arizona has specific laws in place to protect dog bite victims and to hold dog owners liable for their animals’ behavior. Attorney Goldwater understands these laws and how to apply them to the cases that he takes on in order to provide his clients with effective legal representation.
Following a dog bite, a victim will need to file an insurance claim and work on collecting compensation for the injuries/losses he or she has sustained. The insurance company, however, will likely work to deny or delay payment on that claim, or possibly offer a settlement which is far below the actual value of the claim. This is why it is crucial to work with a Phoenix dog bite attorney as soon as possible. It is proven that an experienced attorney can increase the compensation you receive, rather than representing oneself.
While many dog attacks seem to be associated with particular breeds, such as Rottweilers, German Shepherds or Pit Bulls, any dog may bite. Although domesticated, a dog is still an animal that is subject to instinct. Unfortunately, small children are often the victims of dog attacks because they may act in a manner which frightens or angers a dog. A dog owner may be held liable in a number of instances that involve a dog attack and dog bite injuries.
Phoenix dog bite lawyer Bob Goldwater is dedicated to his clients and helping them collect maximum compensation for their injuries. He takes on cases throughout Phoenix and the surrounding areas in Arizona, including in Mesa, Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale and Scottsdale.
