Greenville Dog Bite Attorneys
Let Us Help You Seek Compensation
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about
4.5 million dog bites happen in the United States every year. Around 900,000
of these bites become infected. While quick treatment can prevent people
from experiencing long-term damage, the event of the bite itself could
be extremely traumatizing for the individual who experienced it. Likewise,
treatment for the bite might be expensive depending on the person’s
insurance coverage. Some people might need stitches, a round of antibiotics,
and bed rest, while others might require plastic surgery.
If your dog bite was caused by the owner’s negligence or carelessness,
make sure the owner is held responsible for his or her irresponsibility.

Most states have laws regarding liability in bite law cases. In South Carolina,
dog owners are held under a strict liability law, meaning the owner is
liable for the damage even if he or she didn’t know or couldn’t
have known the dog would attack or bite. This law would apply if the injuries
were caused when the owner’s dog bites or attacks another person,
the injured person was in a public place or was lawfully in a private
place, and the injured person did not provoke the dog. However, if the
individual who was hurt provoked the dog or was trespassing, the owner
is not liable for any injuries the dog caused.
