For many people, animals like dogs make them nervous. Many Kentucky residents have had scary encounters with dogs and other animals where they were growled at, jumped on or even bitten. Sometimes these events bring both physical injury and emotional trauma.
Animal bites can cause serious harm and damages to victims and their families which is why it is helpful to understand there are legal protections available for victims of animal bites. Victims of an animal bite and their families may, however, wonder what the legal resources are protecting them in the event of an animal bite. In Kentucky, strict liability animal bite laws are followed.
For a lot of people, the simple fact of living in an apartment building should not be the reason why they can't own a dog. In fact, many small breeds are well suited for apartment living and not only offer companionship and entertainment, but can also be trained as helper dogs for those with disabilities or special needs.
A large percentage of Kentucky residents own a dog. Most of these dog owners are responsible and make sure their dog is properly leashed or contained and trained. But, dog bites still happen and can cause serious injuries.
