Understanding Kentucky Dog Bite Laws in the Event of an Attack
It is important to know that Kentucky is considered a strict liability state. This means that the dog owner is liable for any injuries or damages caused by their dog. Favor goes toward those injured by dog bites. In addition, state law allows others to kill any dog seen attacking a person.
State law covers injuries caused to people and animals. A Kentucky dog owner is held liable for any dog bites that their dog causes to others. The state of Kentucky no longer operates under joint and several liability. Joint liability would mean that both parties are responsible for the attack. Several liability would mean that the parties are proportionately responsible of their part in causing the attack.
