A qualified Oregon dog bite lawyer should typically immediately start an investigation and attempt to interview the owner and neighbors. The investigation is centered on the bite and aggression history of the animal and whether the dog owner has insurance.

The insurance investigation is critical when the dog bite occurred at a public place. Many people, such as renters. do not have liability insurance to cover their negligence. If that’s the case, it is often not prudent or cost-effective to seek damages against them, sadly.

If they are a homeowner, they almost always will have insurance unless they are violating their home mortgage contract.

    Wrongful Death – Drunk Driver Kills Teenage Girl

    After a party in the hills, a drunk driver rolls his car off of an embankment, seriously injuring his passengers and killing our client’s teenage daughter. The car’s severely intoxicated owner and surviving passengers claim the decedent was driving. Our investigation uncovered a possible conspiracy between the kids to blame the girl who couldn’t speak for herself. The DA’s Office convicted the car owner for Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor but refused to have the blood in the car analyzed for DNA to establish who was driving. Arnold Law was able to seize the blood evidence, had DNA tests performed, and hired a passenger kinesiologist to determine the locations of the occupants based on blood location. The discovery of the car owner’s blood on the steering column led to a negotiated settlement between the injured occupants and the owner’s insurance company.
