Arizona Revised Statutes 11-1025 states, “The owner of a dog which bites a person when the person is in or on a public place or lawfully in or on a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog, is liable for damages suffered by the person bitten, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of its viciousness.”
Ask yourself the 3 questions below:
Were you bitten or attacked by an animal?
Were you in a public place or another person’s property?
Were you lawfully (with permission) present at the location of the attack?
If your answer is YES to the questions, then you may have a claim for injuries. For a full case review, please call Select Law.

WHAT SOME OF OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT US:
Parham and his entire team have been great about responding to messages and communicating with me about my case status throughout the entire process. They are more than willing to answer our questions and spend time to make sure that we adequately understood the answers. Not only would I recommend Parham to any family and friend, I'd use them again, without any hesitation.
Parham was awesome to work with! Super up front, no games or misspoken words. He represented not only myself but himself, better then I could of hoped. He was a true team player and has a client first mentality. I felt confident in my situation because of his confidence and honesty. He will definitely be my first call or recommendation when ever the time comes!
My family and I were hit by a drunk driver a few days before Christmas, Parham came recommended by a family member and we are so grateful we hired him! He was incredibly prfessional and kind explained all of the prcesses we went through very clearly for us. We really felt like he had our best interest at heart and we couldn't have been happier with our experience with him.
Definitely would recommend him!
