Mount Sterling Kentucky Dog Bite Attorney
Many dog bite victims that suffer severe injury or that are killed by dogs are small children. Fortunately, Kentucky law is designed to facilitate financial recovery to dog attack victims by holding the owners or keepers of dogs strictly liable for injuries inflicted on people or other animals. If a dog owner is determined to have a "vicious" dog that causes injury by biting or attempting to bite someone, the court may impose liability on the person who owns or possesses the dog even if the dog bite did not result from negligent conduct. Dog bite statistics reveal that nearly 1,000 people per day are injured by attacking dogs.
If you or a family member is bitten or otherwise injured by a dog, our Mount Sterling dog bite lawyers may be able to represent you in seeking compensation for pain and suffering, medical care, disability, emotional distress and other damages.
