Our Oklahoma City Dog Bite Lawyers Can Help You Secure Deserved Compensation for Devastating Injuries

Dog attacks can result in severe physical and psychological harm, including long-term pain, disfigurement, scarring and the potential loss of wages due to an inability to work for weeks or even months. Victims often experience intense emotional trauma as a consequence. You may be faced with:

  • Mounting medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Additional expenses from needing household help.

As soon as possible after a dog bite, contact our dog bite attorneys for help getting compensation for your losses.

Our OKC Dog Bite Injury Lawyers Know the Laws

Dog bite victims in Oklahoma can find comfort in the fact that this is a “strict liability” state when it comes to dog bites. This implies that an owner of a canine will be held accountable for any injury, even if they had no idea their pet was aggressive. In other words, you don’t have to prove negligence on behalf of the animal’s guardian – all that needs to be shown is that someone has been injured as a result of being bitten by the dog and they are entitled to compensation!

You don’t need to prove that the dog was vicious for the owner to be liable – as long as you didn’t provoke or trespass on their property, they’re accountable for any losses incurred from the attack.

Moreover, pet owners can be held liable for personal injury negligence if they were aware that their dog was prone to aggressive behavior.

WHAT DO OKLAHOMA DOG BITE LAW SAY?

If a dog bite occurs in Oklahoma, the pet owner is responsible for any damages caused, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In some cases, the victim may be entitled to additional compensation if the dog owner’s behavior was particularly negligent, such as if they failed to keep their dog on a leash in a public area.

In addition to the civil liability, a dog owner can also face criminal charges for a dog bite. If the dog has a history of aggressive behavior, the owner could face charges of reckless or intentional harm. These charges could result in fines, jail time, or even the dog’s euthanasia in extreme cases.

FAQ’s FOR OKLAHOMA CITY DOG BITE LAWYERS

Nearly every victim of a dog bite asks some of the following questions when they meet with a dog bite lawyer. Our Strong Law legal team will be happy to answer any additional questions and concerns you may have, so call us today at 206-737-1421.

Are dog bite attacks covered by insurance?

In Oklahoma State, the dog owner is responsible for paying for your injuries, and if they have homeowner’s or renter’s insurance, this insurance should cover your claim. If the costs of your claim are greater than the insurance coverage, the dog owner will be responsible for the difference.

Do I need to hire a Oklahoma City dog bite lawyer to get a settlement?

You are certainly at liberty to handle your dog bite claim on your own, though you may find that having a knowledgeable and experienced attorney by your side makes all the difference. Insurance adjusters will likely try to get you to accept an inadequate settlement – but with the help of an expert lawyer advocating for you, they won’t have much luck in doing so. Your lawyer can fight hard to ensure that you receive what’s rightfully yours under the law.

How much can I collect for my injuries following a Oklahoma City dog bite?

Settlement amounts for victims of a Oklahoma City dog bite attack vary greatly, depending on the factors involved including:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • Whether you have permanent disfigurement
  • The costs of medical treatment and need for rehabilitation
  • The time and money you lose from being unable to work
  • The long-term outlook for your recovery.

How will the dog owner and their insurance companies try to avoid paying and how will a dog bite lawyer help?

The insurance company may try to avoid paying out a claim by unjustly shifting the blame from their client onto you. They could allege that you provoked the dog into attacking, or that you were trespassing on private property when attacked. Fortunately, our experienced attorneys will be prepared for these tactics and provide evidence which refutes these baseless claims!

The insurance company sent me a settlement offer — should I accept?

Insurance organizations typically attempt to persuade you into promptly accepting a meager offer. Before settling for anything, make sure it is assessed by an experienced Oklahoma City dog bite lawyer. Remember that once you agree to the initial amount, your entitlement to seek more compensation if your losses exceed said sum will be extinguished permanently from then on – this tactic is extremely common because insurers understand that they can eliminate all of their future liabilities through early settlements.

Will I Have to Go to Court?

Our Strong Law dog bite attorneys have a thorough understanding of what your case is worth and will strive to ensure you receive fair compensation. If negotiations break down, we are ready to proceed with legal action if deemed necessary. Nevertheless, most cases can be amicably resolved before court proceedings commence. We will do everything in our power to protect your rights and obtain equitable restitution for any damages incurred as a result of the incident.

What types of injuries do we see from dog bites?

Our Strong Law dog bite attorneys have seen a number of different types of injuries due to dog bites. These include lacerations, broken bones, trauma and even brain injuries.

“Very professional, and treated me as an equal.”

Just wanted to say thank you to Jed and his team at Strong Law. Not only was I happy with the outcome, but the entire process as a whole. I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone. Thanks again.

“Unbelievable work!”

I had a claim involving my own insurance company. I tried to negotiate with them, and they completely denied my claim – two times. I then hired Strong Law, and the change was instant. The insurance company immediately began negotiating, and Jed was able to secure an unbelievably good settlement. I will never again attempt to take-on an insurance company without Strong Law in my corner. Thank you!”

How Can You Help Your Attorney with Your Dog Bite Case?

What you do right after you suffer a dog bite can impact your case. Following a dog bite, victims should take the following steps and heed these warnings:

  • Seek medical attention – Even when you think your injuries are minor, get immediate medical attention. You may wind up with an infection, problems with wound healing, or more serious injuries if they are neglected.
  • Identify the dog and dog owner – To prove liability, you must be able to identify the dog that attacked you and locate the dog owner. Get the owner’s name, contact information, address, and any insurance information.
  • Get witness information – If there are any witnesses, get their contact information as well.
  • Gather evidence — If possible, take photos of the attack scene and your injuries, and gather evidence such as ripped clothing.
  • Document injuries and progress — Take photos of your injuries at different stages and keep a journal to document problems such as pain and lack of sleep or difficulty walking.
  • Report the incident — Report the incident to local animal control. This can help your case should a lawsuit be necessary.
  • Contact our dog bite attorney – The sooner you call Strong Law, the sooner we can get to work for you while evidence is fresh and witnesses can be found. Also, Oklahoma has a “statute of limitations,” a deadline for filing personal injury claims including lawsuits filed after a dog bite. Claims generally must be filed within three years of the injury or the courts will likely refuse to hear the case.

What Is the Value of My Case?

You may have medical bills, lost income, costs associated with pain and suffering, among other possible damages. To learn the possible value of your case, contact the team at Strong Law. In a free case evaluation, we’ll let you know how much your case may be worth.

What Are Your Hours?

Strong Law is open five days a week between 9am and 5pm. In addition, we offer after hours return calls, weekend calls, and online chat.

What Kinds Of Cases Are Personal Injury?

Call us to know for sure, but a good rule of thumb is when an “accident” that happened to you because of the acts of or misdeeds of another party. Examples are: Auto accidents; motorcycle accidents; semi-truck accidents; wrongful death; medical malpractice; slip, trip and fall; boating accidents, faulty equipment, nursing home abuse; and many others.

Will I Be Charged To Consult Or Talk With You?

No, not ever. Strong Law is a contingency personal injury firm offering specialized experience along with access when you need it. Our goal is to gain the best settlement and provide comfort in the process, so easy access to us is part of our best practices.

What Does Contingency Mean?

Contingency in a legal matter means an expense to the client based on the outcome of a future event or circumstance which is possible but cannot be predicted with certainty. Said another way, Strong Law gets paid only if your case settles.

Can You Give Me An Assessment Of My Case?

Absolutely. While we cannot guarantee anything, nor do we imply a settlement, our willingness to take your case (and do it on contingency) is our voice that we feel your case has strong merit. After speaking with you, we can provide a merit assessment over the phone. However, we caution that accepting your case does not promise anything, your outcome is reflected in the law firm you choose.

What Should I Do If I’m Having Problems, Like Their Insurance Company Is Calling Me?

Always secure an attorney first. If you sign up with Strong Law now, you can advise their insurance company that you have representation and give them our name and contact information. From that time forward, they should not be contacting you again; it’s the law. If you do not sign with an attorney, like Strong Law, you will need to speak with them and represent yourself to resolve your injury. We strongly urge against this; insurance companies are skilled at ensuring their best interests over yours.

What Are Common Reasons For Insurance Injury Denials?

Make sure you receive medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident, otherwise insurance may argue your pain is from an unrelated incident.Insurance companies will be going out of their way to find some proof that the accident was your fault. Don’t be intimidated.If you have preexisting medical conditions that make you more likely to suffer an injury, it is not uncommon for insurance agencies to deny claims based on this.

How Long Does A Case Take To Settle?

It depends on many factors like medical care, future needs, evidence, proof of liability, and many others. Some cases take months while others can last a couple years. Ultimately, our goal is to represent you and what is going to be best for you in the long run.

Why Can Cases Last Years?

Because the law dictates it. There are many layers to make sure the insurance companies treat you with optimal care. For example, there will be time spent for medical treatments you might need. There is time to gather the needed medical reports and discover any long term impacts this injury will have on your life today and into the future. There is time for the other side to review our demands, research, and respond as well. It can feel like a long time, but we follow the law and strategize for the best benefit to you. We are with you the whole time.
