Helping Arizona residents hold owners liable after an animal bite

As a previous post highlighted, an animal bite can be a very serious situation because, even when the wound is minimal, it could result in serious infections and health concerns. And while keeping a domestic pet like a dog or a cat can be rewarding and beneficial, being an animal owner carries various risks. An animal attack or dog bite could cause physical injuries and emotional harm, and injured victims could hold an owner liable for the injuries and damages suffered.

Animal bites pose high risk of infection

Being bit or attacked by a dog or other domestic animal can be a scary situation for some Arizona residents. While an animal bite might be little or does not result in a deep wound, bite victims should take a wound caused by an animal attack seriously. Even a small bite carries a risk of infection and a negligent dog owner could be held liable following a dog bite.

How prevalent are holiday drunk driving accidents?

With the upcoming holidays, residents in Arizona and elsewhere are probably planning and preparing for family gatherings and holiday events. While this is a joyous time, it is also a time when motorists need to be more cautious. While residents and visitors in Arizona are not concerned with inclement winter weather, they should be weary of drunk driving on the roadways during the holidays.

Arizona driver recently convicted of a DWI causes fatal crash

When Arizona drivers get behind the wheel of a vehicle, they have the duty to drive safe. When a driver fails to uphold that duty, he or she could cause a serious or fatal accident. Depending on the factors that led to the crash, the driver at fault could face both criminal and civil penalties for his or her negligence or recklessness.

Hands-free technology does not eliminate distracted driving

The dangers of distracted driving are well known to motorists in Arizona and other states in the nation. And while steps have been taken to alleviate and reduce these dangers, these unfortunately do not eliminate them. The usage of technology while driving contributes significantly to distracted driving; however, making them hands-free does not erase the dangers that technology imposes on drivers.
