Kentucky has strict regulations regarding dog bites. If you or someone you know has been injured by a dog, understanding what your options are and the steps you need to take in filing a possible lawsuit is crucial. In this way, having an attorney by your side helps greatly.
At Morgan & Morgan, our attorneys have years of experience negotiating and litigating dog bite claims, successfully recovering compensation against negligent dog owners.

Why Should I Hire a Dog Bite Attorney?
The claims process for recovering compensation for damages inflicted by a dog bite is generally straightforward; however, depending on the details of your claim, certain complications may arise. It is important that you hire an attorney with experience successfully navigating these types of cases. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling dog bite cases and, in handling your claim, will investigate the incident by evaluating:
- Your involvement in the event;
- The dog’s behavior and previous history of attacks;
- The location of the attack;
- If any warning signs were posted;
- The owner’s compliance with the law.
At Morgan & Morgan, our attorneys can help to reduce the impact of any allegations suggesting you were partly at fault for the bite and resulting injury. Our Louisville attorneys are proficient and have a history of building successful claims on behalf of their clients.
Who Is Liable?
Liability is not strictly limited to the dog’s owner. If a landlord has knowledge that a tenant has a dog on the premises, they may also be liable for the dog’s actions. If they are aware of a dangerous dog on the premises, they owe other tenants a duty of care to protect them from harm.
What Can I Recover After a Dog Bite Attack?
If you have been injured by a dog bite, you may be entitled to recover compensation for present and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, veterinary bills, and property damage.
