Phoenix 狗 Attack Attorneys Answer 狗咬人的常见问题
Below are just a few of the questions that dog bite victims may have following an animal attack in Phoenix:
What's the difference between strict liability and the "one free bite" rule?
Different states have different liability laws for dog owners. Most states fall under either strict liability or "one free bite" laws. Some states have even outlawed particular dog breeds altogether.
在一个有“免费咬一口”法律的州, a dog owner is not held responsible for the first dog-bite offense. The dog's owner gets a free pass, even if he or she is aware the dog is a potential danger.
但在十大彩票游戏平台却不是这样. Arizona holds owners to a standard known as strict liability: dog owners are responsible 对于一个ll personal and property damages their dog incurs.
而 诉讼时效 is technically two years, lawsuits should be filed within one year of the attack. If a lawsuit is brought within one year of a dog attack, the owner is held to Arizona's strict liability laws.
If the claim is brought after one calendar year, but less than two years from the date of the dog attack, the claimant must prove that the dog owner knew or had reasonable cause to have known that his pet had dangerous propensities. This may require proving the dog had bitten or threatened someone before, 哪一个标准很难达到.
Many groups have spent time and money surveying dog-related fatalities to determine 哪些品种是危险的. 作为一个结果, 罗纳维尔犬, 斗牛犬, and Rottweiler-Pit Bull mixes are considered to be among the most vicious breeds.
支持者认为繁殖, 然而, that the dogs themselves are not as inherently violent as studies show.
From our viewpoint, it does not matter why, or what kind of dog, attacked an innocent victim. Whether it is due to owner irresponsibility or the nature of a particular dog breed, these attacks are happening much too frequently.

If someone trespasses on private property or ignores a "Beware of 狗" sign, 他们还能提起被狗咬的诉讼吗?
是的. 然而, trespassers and people who ignore obvious warnings that a dangerous dog patrols the property may find jurors and judges less receptive to their claim. 在大多数情况下, a jury will not grant an award to someone who was committing an illegal act when he or she got bitten.
As always, this question must be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
是的. 下 ARS 11 - 1025, a dog bite victim cannot recover damages if he or she is proven to have provoked the attack.
