Victims of dog bites deserve justice, and you do not have to suffer alone. After an attack, you deserve financial compensation, and our firm can help you get it. Schedule your initial evaluation for free today by callng (503) 825-2115!

Examining the "One Bite Rule" in Oregon

The state of Oregon follows the "one bite rule," which holds all dog owners strictly liable for the injuries that their pet has caused if they know or have any reason to believe that their animal may be aggressive. Under Oregon Restatement of Torts §518, if an animal causes harm to a person or an owner is negligent in preventing harm, the animal's owner is held completely liable for the injuries and may be held accountable for paying damages to victims. They would be considered "negligent" for failing to keep others safe while in the vicinity of their potentially dangerous pet.

Recovering Economic & Non-Economic Damages

With the "one-bite rule," damages could include:

  • Compensation for medical care
  • Rehabilitative treatment
  • Forfeited income
  • Other financial losses from the injury

Should they have reason to believe that the pet owner was aware of the dog's violent propensities, they may have ground to pursue non-economic damages, as well—including compensation for pain, emotional distress, loss of consortium, inconvenience, etc.
