Lexington Kentucky Dog Bite Laws

Kentucky has some pretty strict laws concerning animal injuries. The Kentucky Revised Statutes section 258.235 contains the dog bite statute. A dog owner's culpability isn't limited to just bites under the law. For example, you might be held accountable for your aunt's broken arm if your dog is overjoyed to see her and leaps up on her, knocking her down and injuring her.

What to Do if I Was Bitten by an Animal in Lexington Kentucky?

When an animal attack occurs, it's important to seek medical attention immediately. However, before leaving the scene, it's important to get the owner's information as well as pictures of the scene and any pertinent information. 

What Information to Include in the Report

If possible, it's important to gather as much information as you can before you leave the scene of an attack. The more information you have, the stronger your case will be to collect compensation. Here is a list of some things that could be useful:

  1. Pet owner's information and description of the animal
  2. Date, time, and location of the attack
  3. Photos of injuries
  4. All details of medical treatment received
  5. Details of the injury including location, what kind of injury, etc.
