Dangerous Dog Types

Phoenix, Arizona Dangerous Dog and Dog Bite Attorney

Insurance carriers and other specialists have identified “dangerous dogs” based on determinations that certain breeds are more likely to be responsible for attacks and serous dog bite injuries. These dogs may be more dangerous because they are trained to fight or if the animal was bred with characteristically dangerous traits.

Dangerous dogs like Pit Bulls and Rottweilers cause the majority of deaths in dog bite cases. If you or someone you love has suffered from a vicious dog attack, contact Erlichman Law Firm.

Dog bite injuries are extremely costly and can result in significant damages paid out by insurance companies every year. Due to the number of claims resulting from certain dangerous breeds, many insurance companies have blacklisted dogs and refused to provide insurance to owners of those dogs.

It is often unknown why a dog may attack. A dog may feel threatened by a small child or uneasy in parks or other high-traffic areas. Some dogs will attack if there are other dogs in the vicinity. Owners are required to follow Arizona leash law to prevent dog bite injuries.

Dangerous dog and aggressive dogs include:

  • Pit bulls
  • German Shepards
  • Dobermans
  • Rottweilers
  • Terriers

While dangerous dogs are more likely to attack and cause serious injuries, even small or seemingly calm dogs are unpredictable and can attack or bite if provoked or threatened.
