Were you injured by a dog bite or other type of animal attack?
\nAttorney Jamal F. Allen is experienced in the causes of action that can be used to bring forward injury claims and the statutes of limitation. Dog bite claims can be brought under two causes of action. One cause of action is called “strict liability”. Strict liability refers to an owner’s responsibility over his or her dog. In Arizona, dogs are not allowed one “free bite”―when a dog bites someone, the owner is responsible. A strict liability claim against a dog owner must be filed within one year.\n\nNegligence refers to a property owner’s negligence in controlling a dog that has previously bitten. A dog with a prior bite is said to have a vicious propensity. The plaintiff may be entitled to punitive damages. Claims must be filed within two years.\n\nIn addition to representing victims of dog bites and pit bull attacks, Allen & Associates, PLC represents people who have been injured by cat attacks and exotic animals such as monkeys, alligators and snakes.\n
