Accidents Involving Animals
Hill Law Office represents victims of dog bites, animal attacks, car accidents involving roaming livestock and others who have been injured by animals. We handle these cases carefully to preserve relationships among friends and family members, when the victim and the animal owner know each other.

Were you or your child seriously injured by a dog? The laws in Oregon dealing with dog bite cases are clear: When a dog bites someone, the owner is strictly liable if he or she is aware of the dog’s propensity to bite.
Dog bites can have serious consequences, especially when the victim is a young child. Dog bites can result in dangerous infections, scarring and disfigurement. The cost of treating dog bite injuries varies greatly, but can be expensive.
We represent victims of animal attacks, helping them seek compensation to cover the medical and other expenses associated with their injuries. If you are concerned about pursuing a lawsuit against a dog owner who is a friend or family member, remember that this type of accident is often covered by homeowners or renters insurance.
Auto Collisions With Animals
Many cattle ranches dot the landscape of Eastern Oregon. With the number of ranches in this area, it is no surprise that collisions between cars and livestock are a common occurrence. When a car collides with a cow or other animal, our legal approach will vary depending on where the accident occurred:
- Livestock districts — In livestock districts, ranchers are required to fence in livestock.
- Open range — In open range areas, ranchers are not required to fence in livestock.
This is an area of the law that is unfamiliar to many lawyers. At Hill Law Office, we know how the law applies in motorcycle and auto cases involving animals in both livestock districts and open range areas. We help individuals and families recover financially after these accidents. To learn how we can help you, please do not hesitate to contact our law office.
