Dog Bites & Animal Injuries

An animal bite or attack is not the only way that one can sustain injuries from an animal. If you were injured in a horseback riding accident, or if your child was injured while playing with a large dog, you could be entitled to injury compensation.

In Indiana and Kentucky, animal owners are responsible for controlling their animals and ensuring that they are safe to be around people. If you are injured by another person's animal in any circumstance, the owner can be held responsible. Any type of animal-related injury can be devastating, causing lifelong impacts such as disability, scarring or disfigurement, but even if injuries are minor, you should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney.

Compensation You Deserve From Animal Attacks, Bites and Other Accident Injuries

Animal-related injuries can have deep psychological impacts on people as well. A dog attack could require psychological counseling to help a victim cope with trauma from the incident or with the outward appearance of his or her injuries. Facial injuries, especially, could require reconstructive surgery that may still be noticeable for a lifetime.

Even if a friend, relative or neighbor is the owner of the animal that caused your injury, it is important to speak with a personal injury attorney to determine if filing a legal claim or lawsuit is appropriate to recover compensation from homeowners insurance or other assets.

Leash Laws

Animals must be restrained or on a leash at all times. For example, regardless of if a dog is an aggressive breed, has bitten or attacked before, or if some event provoked it, the dog owner is strictly liable for injuries inflicted on another person.

The reason for an animal bite or attack doesn't matter. Compensation is due in most cases, and our law firm can help you obtain the maximum amount you deserve in a variety of circumstances.
