Car Accidents in Kentucky

Pedestrian Accidents in Kentucky

Kentucky Dog Bite Accidents
In Kentucky, dog owners are liable for injuries their dogs cause by biting or attacking others. This means that they are responsible for the damage their pet does, even if the animal has never shown signs of aggression before. Children are the most common victims of dog bites and can suffer permanent disfigurement and long-term trauma after an attack. We hold negligent dog owners accountable.
