Lexington Kentucky Dog Bite Lawyer
Dog bite cases are controlled by statute in Kentucky. The dog bite statute makes owners responsible for the actions of their dogs. Many students and residents of Lexington, Kentucky have dogs as pets. Many of these individuals live in rental units and previously victims who were bitten by dogs owned by these persons had little recourse or chance of recovery because no insurance policies were in place to cover the incident. Now the Kentucky Supreme court has issued a ruling stating that landowners (landlords) can be considered the owner of a dog if the landlord was aware their tenant had the dog. Therefore, if you have been bitten by a dog you should review our Kentucky dog bite page and contact one of our dog bite attorneys promptly so that we can discuss your individual case and determine whether you have a cause of action in which to seek compensation.
