What You Are Entitled To Under the Law
Under Oklahoma law a dog owner is strictly liable for any bites, attacks, or injuries caused by his or her dog. This means that it is not necessary to prove that the dog owner was negligent. To be eligible for and awarded compensation for injuries a dog bite victim received during an attack, the victim must prove: 1) that he or she was bitten by the dog, 2) there was no provocation for the bite or attack, 3) the victim was lawfully on the premises on which he or she was bitten, and 4) the ‘accused’ is the owner of the dog. The Claremore dog bite attorneys of The Wirth Law Office are skilled in handling these types of cases and compiling the evidence that you need to receive the proper compensation you or your loved one deserve.
If you are the victim of a dog bite injury, you may deserve to be compensated for both physical and mental pain and suffering, lost wages due to missed work, medical expenses, and disfigurement suffered due to the dog attack. The dog owner’s homeowners’ insurance policy should cover these expenses.
The Claremore dog bite attorneys at The Wirth Law Office will work with the dog owner’s home owner’s insurance to help you obtain the proper compensation for your injuries. And if necessary, The Wirth Law Office will file a lawsuit on your behalf to obtain the proper monetary recovery.
