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.
