When A Dog Attacks, Get A Kentucky Dog Bite Lawyer

Last updated on March 27, 2024

Dog bites are more common than most people think, and they can happen anywhere. Unfortunately, even a relatively minor bite can leave victims with significant medical bills and ongoing health issues. They may require years of treatment, including plastic surgery, to recover. The financial pressure can be intense.

At Hicks & Funfsinn, PLLC, we bring decades of combined legal experience to every case, including two attorneys experienced in insurance defense. That gives us a unique perspective on every personal injury claim that we can use to the advantage of victims in Lexington and the surrounding counties. Unlike many other firms, you will work directly with one of our attorneys – not a paralegal – as we work to get money for you.

The Consequences Of A Dog Bite Can Be Devastating

The immediate aftermath of a dog bite can be absolute chaos. The full extent of the damage may not even be immediately apparent, especially if complications set in. Dog bite injuries can involve:

  • Deep puncture wounds and permanent scarring
  • Crush injuries and broken bones
  • Bacterial infections
  • Rabies
  • Cellulitis
  • Allergic reactions
  • Abscess formation
  • Nerve damage and joint damage
  • Amputations
  • Psychological harm

Unfortunately, many dog bite victims are small children. Because of their size, the wounds a child can suffer in a dog attack can be extensive. Elderly people, too, tend to suffer serious injuries in dog attacks because they may be less capable of fending the animal off. At times, dog attacks even claim the life of the victim, leaving grieving family members behind.
