Louisville Attorneys For Dog Bite Injuries

In Kentucky, pet owners are responsible for injuries caused by their pets. As the victim of a dog bite injury, you do not have to prove that the owner of the dog was careless or negligent. As long as you were not on the premises unlawfully and you did not provoke the dog, the owner is responsible.

The attorneys at Satterley & Kelley PLLC in Louisville are here to help you get the compensation you need to recover from a dog bite injury. Call 800-655-2117 for a free case evaluation.

Were you bitten by the dog of a friend or relative? It's important to remember that filing a personal injury claim is about obtaining compensation for the victim — not blaming the dog's owners. Damages are typically paid by homeowners' insurance.

Injuries That Can Cause Lasting Harm

People who are bitten by dogs may experience permanent scarring and/or nerve damage. An animal attack can be especially traumatic to a child, who may suffer from lasting fears of animals due to the attack.

Our lawyers will help you obtain compensation for all of the damages you or your family member suffered, including:

  • Past and future medical care
  • Future cosmetic surgery
  • Lost wages if you missed work as the result of your injuries
  • Counseling to overcome fear of dog attacks

When a child is bitten, doctors may not perform procedures to minimize scarring until the child is grown. Those procedures may not be covered by medical insurance, so it's important to recovery compensation now for your child's future needs.
