An estimated 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year and about 800,000 will require medical treatment. Children are commonly the victims of a dog bite. If a dog bit you, or caused serious injury to a member of your family, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Dog bites can cause puncture wounds and lacerations that may require multiple surgeries. Dog bites can also result in loss of sight, hearing, disfigurement, and even death. Complications and infections are always a concern. Even with the best of care, the physical and emotional scars of a dog attack can last a lifetime.
Our attorneys are dedicated to helping dog bite victims obtain financial compensation to cover their injuries. This may include compensation for short/long term medical care, pain and suffering, lost wages, and even the emotional damage caused by the dog bite.
With few exceptions, dog owners in South Carolina are responsible for the harm their dog causes to others. If you are in a public place, or had permission to be on the dog owner’s property when you were bitten, you may have a legal right to compensation.
