No Leash On The Dog? No Excuse From Liability.
You cannot predict when a dog might attack, and this is something local ordinances and state laws in Kentucky take into account. While many laws intersect to govern cases, owners are generally held strictly liable for any harm their dog causes on or off their property. This includes injuries other than dog bites, and you are not required to prove that the animal had aggressive tendencies.
As a victim, you may be eligible to file a civil claim against the dog’s owner on charges of “harboring a vicious dog.” If the dog attacked an individual without reason, the owner or keeper should pay fines and keep the dog away from any individual.
