Strict Liability and Dog Bites in Arizona
How Does Strict Liability Affect Your Dog Bite Claim in Arizona?
If you have been bitten by a dog, you want answers. Dog owners may wonder who was really at fault. Was the dog chained? Had the dog ever attacked a person before? Were you on the dog owner’s property?
In fact, these questions play a very small role in a dog bite injury claim, because dog bite claims involve strict liability under Arizona law.

Strict Liability and Dog Bites
Strict liability is a legal concept that makes a person legally responsible for events that took place regardless of their culpability. There does not have to be any evidence of fault, intent or negligence to find the person is liable for damages.
In the context of a dog bite injury, this means that the injured party does not have to prove the dog was vicious or had a history of attacks. As long as an injured party can prove that a dog bite was unprovoked, they have a basis for filing a claim to obtain monetary compensation.
In general, strict liability makes it easier to prove negligence and pursue damages for dog bite victims.
