Kentucky Dog Bite Laws: What To Know

While other states have a one-bite law that gives dog owners some leeway, Kentucky is a strict liability state. This means that pet owners are liable if their pet attacks someone – even if they had no prior knowledge that the dog might be dangerous. Some of the damages that victims can recover for personal injury claims can include:

  • Emergency room bills
  • Ambulance trips
  • Prescription medications
  • Vaccinations
  • Stitches
  • Lost income
  • Loss of earning potential

Our dog bite attorneys feel compassionate for you. It is exceedingly traumatizing to survive an animal attack. We want to do everything we can to put compensation in your hands so you can move forward with your life.

What Is Comparative Negligence?

Comparative negligence means that even if the victim of a dog bite attack shares some fault, they can still recover a portion of their damages. For example, if someone antagonized a dog and it bit them as a result, the court will determine how much fault the human shared. If their share of fault is 10%, they can recover compensation for up to 90% of their damages.
