Animal owners have a responsibility to keep their dogs and animals under control–but that doesn’t always happen. Unfortunately, about 4.5 million people in the U.S. are bitten by dogs each year. And victims can face severe physical pain and life-altering psychological consequences.
If you’ve been bitten by a dog or animal that was not properly trained or controlled, you have the right to fair compensation for your pain and suffering. At Sam Aguiar Injury Lawyers, we don’t think you should have to pay for an animal owner’s negligence. We know the law, and our Louisville animal bite lawyers will fight to hold the animal owner responsible for your injuries.

Our team at Sam Aguiar Injury Lawyers is determined to help you get fair compensation for your lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering while you or your loved one recovers.
Kentucky Dog Bite Laws
Kentucky is a “strict liability” state for dog bites, which means dog owners are held legally responsible for the actions of their animal. This is true for any type of injury or damage a dog might cause to a person or their property. Owners are expected to control their animal at all times, regardless of if the dog has prior history of aggression.
