Seeking compensation for animal attacks
Just as property owners are responsible for keeping their properties safe for visitors, dog owners are responsible for their dogs’ actions. When an individual is legally on a person’s property and is bit by the property owner’s dog, the victim may be entitled to take legal action. At Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons, we provide experienced representation to individuals who have suffered dog bites and other injuries caused by animal attacks.
Oklahoma dog bite statutes protect victims
At Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons, we know the right thing to do, and we do it. For a person who has sustained an injury from a dog bite, the right thing is to hold the negligent property owner accountable. Oklahoma has strict dog bite statutes. Dogs in Oklahoma do not get “one free bite” as they do in other states. Our state dog bite statute protects any person who is legally on the property when the attack occurs, including mail carriers, meter readers and invited guests. Trespassers are not protected.
Dog bites can cause serious injury and wrongful death
Dog attacks victimize adults and children, but small children and the elderly are most likely to be fatally injured in a dog attack.
A personal injury attorney represents people of all ages who sustain injuries such as:
- Broken and crushed bones
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Ligament damage
- Puncture wounds
- Nerve damage
- Psychological damage
- Severed body parts
- Wrongful death
Individuals may need emergency medical care, plastic surgery and psychological counseling. A vicious dog attack can be so terrifying that the victim may suffer panic attacks, insomnia and other psychological problems, including a lifelong fear of dogs.
