Kentucky has a strict statute that governs all dog bites and attacks. When a dog or other pet attacks and/or bites someone and causes injury, the dog owner is liable for all damages associated with the bite/attack. If you or someone you know has been bitten by a dog and your injuries require medical attention, you are eligible to sue the owner. In order to do so, you will need the expertise of a dog bite attorney from Schuler Law Office to protect your rights throughout the process. We can represent you in your dog bite personal injury case throughout Kentucky.
What Laws Does a Dog Bite Attorney Know That Will Help My Lawsuit?
Kentucky dog bite statutes state that any dog that bites or attacks someone is dangerous and vicious if it attacks when it isn’t being provoked. This means that if a dog is found to be vicious that they must be kept in a pen and let out only when muzzled and kept on a four-foot leash and only to visit the vet. This law pertains to attacks on livestock too.
Victims of dog bites can sustain severe and, in some cases, fatal injuries. If a dog or other animal bites you, its owner is directly responsible for the medical costs, emotional pain and suffering, and loss of wages associated with the injury. This can be compensated for during a lawsuit filed by an experienced Kentucky dog bite attorney.
