Fort Campbell Dog Bite Attorneys
Have you or a loved one been attacked by a dog? Was your child bitten by a dog? Many dog bite cases involve children. In these and other cases, the opponent may try to blame the victim by saying that the dog was being aggravated. At the Haggard Law Office, we have more than 50 years of combined experience overcoming excuses like these and getting compensation for adults and children bitten by dogs. Our attorneys serve clients throughout western Kentucky.
There Is No One-Bite Rule
In the past, in order for a claim to be successful a Fort Campbell dog bite lawyer was required to show that the dog had a propensity for violence and had bitten at least one other person before. While the dog’s history of attacking people certainly helps to make a strong case, dog owners now have strict liability. If their pets cause harm, they can be held accountable. It does not matter if the dog has never hurt anyone before. It has hurt someone now, and we will make certain the victim gets fair compensation.
When We Take Dog Bite Claims To Trial
To make a case a success at trial, we have to understand the jury. There may be dog lovers there. That needs to be taken into account. We know how to build cases accordingly, and our impressive record of success proves it. According to The Kentucky Trial Court Review, Kenneth R. Haggard ranks among the top 25 in terms of the number of personal injury cases tried.
