Helping People Who Have Suffered Dog Bite Injuries
Dogs are known as man’s best friend for a reason. They offer loyalty, companionship and many other benefits. Unfortunately, dogs also bite. These bites can cause horrific injuries. Oftentimes, children are victims of dog bites. Because children are smaller, they are likely to be bitten on the head, face and upper body.

Animal Owners Are Strictly Liable For The Damages They Cause
In Kentucky, when a dog bites someone, the owners are liable for any damages that occur as a result. Exceptions to this rule are if the dog was provoked, or if the person who was bitten was trespassing on the dog owner’s land. These laws apply to other animals as well, including horses. This is known as strict liability.
While strict liability laws do benefit victims of dog bites, it is still important to get a skilled attorney to prepare your case for damages. Our lawyers will work with your doctors to show exactly how this injury impacted your life. For instance, bites to the face, neck or head could require cosmetic surgery to repair the damage. Every step we take in your case will be aimed at helping you recover full compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.
