Why Choose Warhawk Legal’s Dog Bite Lawyers?

When you’ve been attacked by a dog, you deserve a legal team that truly listens and fights for the justice you deserve.

What Are Oklahoma’s Dog Bite Laws?

Oklahoma, like many states, imposes a strict liability law for dog bites. According to 4 OK Stat § 42.4 (2023), “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.”

What To Expect from a Dog Bite Lawsuit?

When you file a dog bite lawsuit, the initial stages involve gathering evidence and consulting with a personal injury attorney. You’ll need to document your injuries thoroughly, including medical records and photographs, and report the incident to local authorities. 

Your attorney will help you assess the viability of your case and may begin negotiations with the dog owner’s insurance company to seek a settlement. If that doesn’t conclude successfully, your case may go to court.

Damages Available in a Dog Bite Case

When you or a loved one is injured after a dog bite, you’ll likely get the chance to seek both economic and non-economic damages in your case. 

Economic damages can help pay for the following: 

  • Medical Bills
  • Rehabilitation Costs
  • Property Damage
  • Lost Wages and Future Earning Potential

Non-economic damages aren’t tied to tangible expenses, but to the pain and suffering that arise from the attack.
