Kentucky Dog Bite Laws

Kentucky dog bite laws are tough on owners and favorable to victims of injury. Kentucky is also a "strict liability" state, which means that the owner of the dog is liable for all damages incurred by the victim and may be liable for individuals, livestock, property and pets.

The Kentucky dog bite statute can be found in Section 258.235 of the Kentucky Revised Statutes.
