Dog Bite Law: What You Need to Know

If you have been bitten or attacked by another person's dog, you should contact a personal injury attorney. 

In Kentucky, a dog owner is strictly liable when his or her dog bites, attacks, or is the direct cause of a person's injuries. Strictly liable means that the dog owner is at fault even if the dog is the nicest dog in the world and has never hurt a fly. Additionally, the dog does not actually have to bite someone in order to cause injury.

Is Traumatic Brain Injury considered a disability for Social Security purposes?

Short answer? Yes--and this is why. 

For an in-depth look at this issue, it helps to have the knowledge of a disability attorney. An individual afflicted with a traumatic brain injury ("TBI") may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability benefits (Title II Disability Insurance Benefits and/or Title XVI Supplemental Security Income).  In fact, the Social Security Administration ("SSA") even has its own TBI "Listing," which is 11.18 Traumatic brain injury.

What Are the Symptoms of Secondary Brain Injury?

The signs of secondary brain injury are not always easy to spot, but recognizing them could save your life.

Symptoms of secondary brain injury do not emerge within minutes or even hours after a trauma. Unlike a primary brain injury, which occurs during the initial trauma, symptoms of a secondary brain injury can occur within 12 to 24 hours or as long as 10 days later.
