Vicious dog bites leave lasting physical and emotional scars. A dog bite victim may be entitled to compensation from the dog’s owner if it can be shown that the owner knew or should have known that the dog was dangerous. Both state and local rules will apply. We have provided links to county Animal Control Ordinances for Jackson County, Josephine County, and Klamath County. The Oregon state statutes can be found in on our Resources page. If you have been seriously injured by a dog, please contact us for a free interview, with no obligation.
