Limitations in Self-Defense Cases

Oregon Self-Defense Laws

While people have a right to use physical force to protect themselves or others from harm, the state places certain restrictions on this right. These laws are complicated, and anyone who is not a lawyer cannot be faulted for misunderstanding these confusing nuances. When dealing with self-defense cases, it’s crucial to work with a criminal defense attorney who understands how these cases are tried in Oregon.

Limitations on the use of physical force in self-defense include:

  • When you provoke someone to hurt you so that you may cause them harm and claim self-defense
  • When you instigate a situation but make no attempt to remove yourself from it or avoid violence
  • When you are involved in a combat-by-agreement altercation

It’s important to note that there are very few circumstances in which the use of deadly force is permitted in self-defense. Conditions in which deadly force used in self-defense is deemed lawful in Oregon are extreme, and these cases are meticulously investigated.

At Ward Grover & Ash, we work hard for our clients to provide superior legal services across Deschutes County. When you need a fierce advocate fighting to protect your rights and your freedom, get in touch with us as soon as possible.
