- Dog Owners Can Be Held Liable for Negligence
In Central Park, New York, a couple was walking their dog while it crossed the path of a biker causing him to fly through the air and land on his face. The two people are now being charged for tossing the ball over traffic in disregard to the bicyclist who was riding into the dogs path.
This may not have been ruled in favor of the biker if it werent for a similar case last year when a motorist was injured after striking a cow crossing the road. The cow had reportedly escaped from his fenced pasture and wondered into the road where he was struck by a motor vehicle, thus injuring the driver.
Of course, the Court of Appeals did not rule in favor of the injured person, as negligence could not be proven against the farm owners or the escaped cow, nor had the cow shown any signs of vicious tendencies in the past.
This case differs in that the cows owner had no control over the animal crossing the road as it had escaped from its pasture, whereas the dogs owner was controlling the animal as the biker was crossing its path. In no way was the animal misbehaving, it was completely under its owners control, thus the owner was acting in a negligent manner.

I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
Sophia H is very helpful.
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
