Dogs and Dog Bite Injuries in Keizer
Keizer has a pet friendly zone in Keizer Rapids Park, which has a wide area spanning almost 4 acres, devoted to off-leash dogs. The dog park is fenced and has defined areas for small dogs and all other dogs.
Existing state laws require all dogs in Keizer to be licensed. Licensing can prevent the immediate impounding of a dog that has attacked a person. But the injured party may still be able to obtain compensation for dog bite or attack injuries.
Oregon Revised Statute 609.115 allows an injured party to recover economic damages resulting from dog attack injury by filing suit against the keeper or owner of the dog. The same statute under 31.360 further allows the recovery of economic damages without having to prove that the owner could have foreseen that the dog would attack or cause injury to the plaintiff.
Depending on the circumstances of the incident, the injured party may also be entitled to punitive damages if it can be shown that the owner of the dog acted with malice or displayed a reckless and extreme indifferent attitude to a highly unreasonable risk of injury or harm or indifference to the safety of others.
