Dog Bite Victims in Tulsa, Oklahoma
Attacks from a dog can leave both physical and emotional scarring on the victim regardless of how vicious the dog normally behaves. Dog owners are required, in the state of Oklahoma, to maintain control of their dogs on their own property, on a neighbor’s property or on public property. The Tulsa Dog Bite Lawyers at Impact Law are able to recover damages for the personal injuries you or a loved one has suffered and for the emotional trauma that may result.
Oklahoma Ensures Strict Liability for Dog Bite Accidents
Strict liability in reference to dog bites means that when a dog attacks, there is no need to prove fault in the state of Oklahoma. Ownership of the dog, along with proving the bite occurred from that specific dog, is the only required proof for filing a personal injury claim for a dog bite accident. Oklahoma law states that an animal owner must properly restrain and control their pets; and failing to do so will make the pet owner responsible for damages incurred. However, if the dog was provoked to aggression, then the owner may be exempt from responsibility. More than half of the dog attacks in Tulsa, OK occur on the dog owners’ property by an uncontrolled dog.
