Dog Bites

Louisville Dog Bite Attorney

Were You or Your Child Bit by a Dog?

Dog bites are often an example of premises liability cases. In addition, the state of Kentucky has taken a tough stance in dog bite cases, holding dog owners “strictly liable” for injuries incurred. Most dog bite victims are children.

Dog Bites Can Cause Serious Injuries

Dogs of all sizes and breeds are capable of causing serious bodily injuries to adults and children. Kids are especially vulnerable to dog bite injuries because they tend to gravitate towards animals.

Types of injuries caused by dog bites:

  • Infection
  • Skin lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Muscle tears
  • Nerve damage
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Scarring

Kentucky Dog Bite Laws

Every state has its own laws regarding liability in dog bite cases. In the state of Kentucky, that law is tough on dog owners and favorable to victims of injury. Kentucky is a “strict liability” state, which means that—in the event of a dog bite—the owner of the dog is liable for all damages incurred by the victim. The Kentucky dog bite statute can be found in Section 258.235 of the Kentucky Revised Statutes.

Owners of dogs who attack in Kentucky could be liable for damages to:

  • Individuals
  • Livestock
  • Property
  • Pets
