Recovering Damages For Animal Bite Victims

Dogs may be man's best friend, but all it takes is one attack from an animal to understand how dangerous they can be. Suffering a bite from a dog or another animal can leave you with serious injuries, including lacerations, broken bones and post-traumatic stress disorder.

We are available 24/7 to speak with you about your case. We strive to reduce the stress you feel about your case and will work to recover greater compensation for your injuries.

Animal Owners Are Responsible After An Attack

Kentucky law holds animal owners to a strict liability standard. This means that the owner will be liable for the bite, even if the animal did not have a violent history. We have recovered damages that have helped victims move forward from animal attacks, including:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Reduced future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

It is important to note that Kentucky recognizes comparative negligence in animal bite cases. Therefore, the court may determine that the victim is at least partially responsible for the incident. If the court determines you provoked the animal or were otherwise negligent in your actions, the amount of damages you will receive may be reduced.

Don't Delay Taking Legal Action After Animal Bites

If an animal injured you or a loved one, it is important to take prompt legal action. You must typically file a claim within one year of the attack. Failing to file the claim within that time period could leave you without any recourse to recover damages. Our team will work quickly on your case to meet all legal deadlines and will strive to recover compensation for you in a timely manner.
