Kim Richards, one of the stars of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, could soon be taking on a bit of a different role – defendant in a personal injury lawsuit.  The reality star is accused of negligence and inflicting emotional distress following an incident where her dog attacked and injured her long time friend.

Eighty year old Kay Rosario, a close friend of the family, was attacked by Richards’ dog last year and sustained injuries to both side of her body.  Rosario was treated by paramedics at the scene are required additional treatment at the hospital for large open wounds to her left hand and her right arm.


While this attacked occurred nearly eight months ago the news of a lawsuit didn’t come out until after another attack had occurred.  Richards’ niece was bit by the same dog in the beginning of November and required surgery to repair an injury on her hand.  Rosario has commented that she hired an attorney to help after the reality star continued to claim after the violent attacks that the dog did not pose a threat.  Both attacks occurred inside of Richards’ bedroom, a room that she claims she told her niece was “off limits.”


Dog attacks have been known to result in very serious injury and even death.  Dog owners have the responsibility of taking the necessary precautions to keep other safe from injury caused by their pets.   If you have been a victim of a dog attack you might be entitled to compensation to cover medical expenses and for pain and suffering.  If you have been bit by a dog, reach out to an experienced California personal injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss the details of the event and the extent of your injuries in order to determine the best course of action to get justice.
