Paducah Dog Bites

Paducah is a dog-friendly town with its many dog parks, including Stuart Nelson Park and Bob Noble Park. However, a poorly trained dog can be dangerous, and in the event you are bitten by one, it is important that you know your rights. Kentucky has very specific laws concerning dog bites, some of which may surprise you.

At Morgan & Morgan, our dog bite attorneys understand the specifics of local dog bite laws that could potentially make it more difficult to recover compensation. This gives us a distinct advantage over other firms who don’t have the same understanding of local dog bite laws. Our attorneys know how to avoid those pitfalls and give you a better chance of being compensated for your damages.

If you or a loved one suffered a dog bite in Kentucky, we may be able to help. To learn more about what our Paducah dog bite attorneys may be able to do for you, please fill out our free case evaluation form today.

Typical Dog Bite Injuries

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the typical injuries and diseases associated with dog attacks may include:

  • Lacerations;
  • Bleeding;
  • Nerve damage;
  • Broken bones;
  • Scarring;
  • Rabies infection;
  • Pasteurella infection
  • MRSA infection; and
  • Tetanus infection.

Up to 18 percent of dog bites become infected with bacteria, according to the CDC. Rabies, although rare, is a serious disease and is fatal if not treated immediately.

How a Paducah Dog Bite Attorney Can Help

Our attorneys will work with victims of dog attacks to prove liability on the part of the dog owner and support your claim. This may include:

  • Gathering information about the time, location, and nature of the attack;
  • Investigating previous dangerous behavior from the dog;
  • Proving the dog was intact (not spayed/neutered);
  • Collecting evidence of the attack, including photographs of the injuries;
  • Researching the dog’s previous vaccinations, including whether they have been vaccinated for rabies; and
  • Proving the owner let the dog roam free off of private property.

How Much Does a Dog Bite Attorney Cost?

Our Paducah dog bite attorneys at Morgan & Morgan work on a contingency-fee basis with no upfront cost. That means that you only pay a fee if your attorney successfully recovers compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.

What Can I Recover from a Dog Bite Lawsuit?
