Complex Dog Bite Laws In Oklahoma
The laws of dog bite negligence are different depending on where the incident takes place. Within city limits, dog owners face strict liability for dog bite injuries. This means that a dog owner does not need to be negligent in any way for a victim to recover damages.
However, much of Oklahoma lies outside of cities. To obtain compensation in dog bite cases in rural areas, dog bite victims generally have to establish that the dog owner was negligent in some way. This negligence usually means that the dog owner either knew or should have known that the dog would attack (often based on past attacks) or that the dog owner let the dog run free or committed some other negligent act.
Dog bite cases can come with numerous complications. We take cases involving both city dog attacks and rural dog bite claims in northern Oklahoma and throughout the state. An attorney from our firm can help you understand your rights and obtain the full compensation award to which you are entitled.
