Owning an animal is a right that requires responsibility by owners. Every year more than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs in the United States. Often requiring vaccinations, stitches and other medical care, victims of a dog bite or dog attack often have a right to fair compensation from the owner of the animal. Oregon law makes owners responsible for injuries caused by their dogs even if it is the first time the dog has bitten someone.
As much as every dog owner would like to believe their dog would not bite anyone, animals are wild creatures. Even with extensive training, animals have an instinctual urge to bite sometimes. The attorneys at the Rayburn Law Office have handled numerous dog bit and dog attack cases over the years. Sometimes the law is unclear and insurance companies are banking on victims not retaining a lawyer so they can settle quickly.
