If you or a loved one are the victim of a dog attackthe dog's owner is liable for the injuries and financial damages unless the dog was provoked or the victim was trespassing.

Oklahoma imposes strict liability for dog attacks, making the owner of a dog legally liable to a victim who was bitten. A dog does not get "one free bite" in Oklahoma, and the prior behavior of the dog does not matter in the assignment of liability. It is not necessary to prove that the owner or handler was negligent.

Provoking the dog would involve striking or other abuse. Trespassing would require the victim to be in a place he was not legally entitled to be at the time they were attacked or bitten. A person is not trespassing if they are lawfully on the property of the owner of the dog either expressly or impliedly. A legal purpose includes: as a guest, postal worker, utility meter reader, repair or construction worker, lessee or lessor, or for another legal purpose.

Types of Oklahoma Dog Bite Injury Cases Self & Associates Represents

  • Dog bite injury cases involving Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Chow Chows, German Shepherds and other large breed dogs known for their aggressive behavior.
  • Injury cases involving smaller, but similarly aggressive dogs, such as several Terrier breeds, or Chihuahuas and Dachshunds -- even the smallest dog can cause serious, disfuguring injuries to both children and adults.
  • Dog bite injury cases where the dog is not contained within a fenced yard, or where the fence has been left open, or where the fence is not high enough to contain the dog, or is unmaintained allowing the dog to escape.
  • Dog bite cases where the dog has bitten someone else before, or has a history of other aggressive behavior.
  • ALL serious injury dog attacks.

Other people can be victims of dog attacks and dog bites when the dog is allowed to run loose or has escaped from its restraints. The dog owner is also liable in these instances.

Whether you are visitor, or guest on the property of the dog's owner, or on a public street or your own property, if you or a family member has been injured as the result of a dog attack or dog bite in Oklahoma it could mean medical bills, lost wages and a long period of pain and frustration.
