Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

Serious Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

Dog attacks should never be taken lightly. The most serious animal attacks can result in serious, life-altering injuries. At Garmer & Prather in Lexington, we have litigated some of the most serious dog bite cases in Kentucky on behalf of injured victims. We take these cases seriously, especially when a mauling results in severe injuries or permanent disability.

Who is at Fault for Your Injuries?

In Kentucky, there is a strict liability rule against dog owners. That means that when you are bitten by a dog, the owner is responsible for your injuries.

Can you File a Claim Against a Landlord?

Previously, landlords had similar liability to dog owners. But recent changes in the law makes it more difficult to hold landlords accountable. Contact our office to discuss your case with one of our attorneys.

We have represented clients who have suffered permanent vision loss due to a bite on the face, who have been mauled by a pit bull while delivering the mail and who suffered post-traumatic stress syndrome after repeated dog bites.

When you suffer from a severe injury following an animal attack, the owner needs to be held accountable. When other parties were particularly negligent, leading to the accident, they should also be included in your personal injury claim. At Garmer & Prather, we explore every avenue to secure a fair outcome, so we can prevent an attack like this from happening in the future.

Put a Stop to Dangerous Animal Attacks

When someone adopts a dog or another dangerous animal, it is their duty to keep others safe from an animal attack. These injuries are different from other personal injury cases in that the owner is almost always liable for your injuries.

If you have been injured by a dog or another dangerous animal, don't hesitate to contact our firm. We offer free initial consultations to get started. Our skilled trial lawyers dedicate the time and attention that every case deserves, and have a history obtaining results for accident victims across the region. Reach out today to get started.
