Arizona dog bite accidents can be caused by a number of different actions on both the part of the dog’s owner as well as the victim who was bit by the dog. The most common causes of animal injury accidents involving a bite include:
- The dog was roaming the streets at large and was scared by people that it encountered, smelled food on them, or was trying to play with them.
- The dog was not properly trained to deal with strangers and with children and lashed out when approached by strangers; this could happen if the dog is at large, on a leash, or in the confines of the owner’s yard.
- The dog was not on a leash and attacked another animal, which led to human intervention and a subsequent attack.
Although these are the most common causes of dog bite injuries, there are many other situations in which a dog attack could occur and victims should always reach out to a skilled dog bite attorney to find out if they have a case.
