Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
An Oklahoma plaintiff cannot recover if it is 51% or more at fault. If 50% or less at fault, it can recover, although its recovery is reduced by its degree of fault. If plaintiff is 10% at fault, plaintiff gets 90% recovery. Okla. Stat. Ann. Tit. 23 § 13.
If your neighbor allowed his dog to run around uncontrolled and unsupervised he would, most likely, be considered more than 50% at fault for the accident and not able to recover from you to compensate the loss.
