In Kentucky, dog bites are deemed to be strict liability cases. This means that the owner of the dog is liable for injuries caused by their dog, unless you provoked the dog. Dog attacks are becoming more prevalent in our society. An owner may have failed to train the dog properly, neglected to restrain the dog correctly or, in the worst circumstances, actually trained the dog to be vicious.
Dog attacks cause painful and emotional injuries.
It is not uncommon for the attack to cause teeth punctures, stitches, scarring or the treatment for rabies. If you have been attacked by a dog you are entitled to be compensated for your injuries.
