Oklahoma Dog Bite Laws
Oklahoma law holds dog owners responsible for damages caused by unprovoked dog attacks. Oklahoma statute §4-42.1 states:
The owner or owners of any dog shall be liable for damages to the full amount of any damages sustained when his dog, without provocation, bites or injures any person while such person is in or on a place where he has a lawful right to be.
If you were the victim of an unprovoked dog attack while visiting a friend, performing work requested by a homeowner or while you were otherwise on a person's property lawfully, you have a right to receive compensation for your injuries. Our attorneys have the experience to protect your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve.
