Strict Liability in Dog Bite Cases
Generally, Arizona has strict liability for dog bite cases. This is good news for the unfortunate victims of dog bites and their families. It means that if there is an incident, the owner or possessor of the dog is presumed to be negligent, although certain defenses may be available such as provocation.
