If you or your child were bitten by a dog, you suffered more than a physical injury. You may be experiencing trauma and stress brought on by a dog attack you thought was a neighbor's harmless pet. You may be wondering how you are going to help your child after he or she suffered serious and disfiguring wounds to the face and or other areas of the body. You may be in a job where your appearance is very important; scars from dog bites may prevent you from returning to work. You need to know about your rights and options.
Arizona Dog Bite Lawyers
At Gabroy, Rollman, & Bossé, P.C., we have been handling serious dog bite claims for more than 20 years.

Helping Clients After Dog Bite Injuries
Our law firm has the knowledge and resources to quickly assess and litigate dog bite cases. We analyze the circumstances of the dog attack, evaluate the owner's liability and assess the severity of the injuries. Our attorneys build strong cases by:
- Reviewing police reports, interviewing witnesses and assessing the impact of the injuries on our client's life and future
- Identifying all insurance coverage that may apply to the claim
- Negotiating with insurance companies and their attorneys
- Helping clients find appropriate medical doctors and other specialists
We keep you informed every step of the way, offering information, comfort and guidance. Dog bite injuries can be devastating and have the potential to cause disfigurement and permanent scarring. In addition, if the dog was unlicensed, the victim may need to undergo painful rabies shots. Our law firm can help you by providing aggressive advocacy in pursuit of full and fair compensation for your medical treatment (including reconstructive surgery), psychological counseling, lost wages and other expenses associated with the animal attack.
In Arizona, dog bite claims are sometimes handled as strict liability cases. This means that we don't need to prove that the owner was negligent in order to obtain compensation for our client.
