What Do You Need to Know About Dog Bite Laws in Deschutes County, Oregon?

Dog bite injury laws in Oregon are governed under the “potentially dangerous dog” guidelines. 

An Oregonian dog owner may be held liable for a dog bite injury if their dog meets any of the following criteria:

  • The dog physically harmed someone.
  • The dog was menacing to others while outside the owner’s property.
  • The dog injured or killed another pet while outside of the owner’s property.

If a dog was provoked, it might not be labeled as a “potentially dangerous dog,” and the owner may escape liability. The owner may try to prove that someone provoked their dog or trespassed on their property to avoid paying fair compensation.

When you contact Miller & Hopp Attorneys at Law, our Bend dog bite lawyers will examine all pieces of material evidence and put together an airtight case for you. A pet owner deemed liable for a potentially dangerous dog may have to compensate you for your pain, suffering, and monetary damages as a result of a dog bite.

Dog Bite Settlements

Under Oregon law, you’re entitled to recover the following damages:

  • Compensation for any medical bills, hospitalizations, emergency care, and follow-up care
  • Payment for counseling
  • Reimbursement for the cost of any plastic surgery
  • Compensation for lost wages and diminished future earning capacity
  • Pain, suffering, and decreased quality of life
  • Disfigurement or scarring
  • Disability
  • Wrongful death

When you contact us to represent your interests in a dog bite lawsuit, we know exactly what evidence to gather to prevent the owner from escaping their responsibility. There’s no fee until we win your case.
