Bit by a Dog?
Emotions run high after a dog attack and especially if the victim is a child. The attack can be extra shocking if it took place in a spot you felt safe, such as your backyard. If you or a loved one is bitten by a dog, contact an experienced Tucson dog bite lawyer.
At Lerner and Rowe our lawyers are familiar with state and local dog bite laws. Our team also works with dog behavior and injury experts. We do this to ensure that the rights of dog attack victims are protected.
Legal steps we take on behalf of clients include:
- Investigating the dog’s behavioral history, the property where the attack took place and the pet owner, to verify if they were negligent with the handling and care of the dog.
- Gathering evidence and documentation including photos of the dog bites on the victim.
- Documenting other injuries resulting from the dog attack and obtain copies of medical bills and doctor reports.
- Negotiating third party insurance claims and possibly reduce medical expenses resulting from the injuries obtained.
- Seeking compensation for injuries, losses and other damages.
Steps to Take After a Dog Bite
After a dog attack you need to seek immediate medical attention, call the police to file an incident report and then contact our experienced lawyers here at Lerner and Rowe. Waiting to get medical help for a dog bite can lead to infection that could worsen your symptoms as well as your chance of a proper recovery.
Damage settlements our dog bite lawyers have recovered included costs associated with lost wages, medical bills, future reconstructive surgery and ongoing emotional and psychological counseling. Our fees are contingent on the success of your case, there are no up-front or out-of-pocket costs; you pay nothing unless we win your case. You have nothing to lose!

In Tucson, regardless of whether or not a dog has bitten someone before, the owners of the dog are liable for any bites or injuries suffered by the person attacked. Even if the dog was with another person other than the owner and was not properly confined or on a leash when the dog attack occurred, that person can also be held liable for damages suffered.
