What is a Dog Bite Case?
Dog bite incidents can vary in terms of severity, and victims may suffer a broad range of injuries including:
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Puncture wounds
- Nerve damage
- Tissue and muscle damage
- Contusions and bruises
- Psychological and emotional injury
- Fatal injuries
Dog bite victims almost always require medical treatment following the attack, which can leave them with sizable medical bills. In addition to these expenses, victims may miss time from work, resulting in lost wages. Additionally, those who suffer a dog bite may also be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering and psychological/emotional trauma sustained as a result of the attack. Victims may thus seek recovery from the dog’s owner.
The experienced personal injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have the knowledge and experience to navigate this complex area of law and have a proven track record of delivering results to their clients.
Types of Dog Bite Cases
Under South Carolina law, dog owners are responsible for injuries caused when their dog bites another individual, even if the dog has no history of aggression. Dog owners are thus said to be “strictly liable” for injuries resulting from a dog bite.
These cases can be complicated, however, as a dog’s owner may argue the victim’s actions toward the dog caused the attack or otherwise preclude their recovery. If you have been the victim of a dog bite, you can rely on the extensive experience of the personal injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan to navigate the complexities of your case. With a network of over 1,000 attorneys, we have the resources to investigate the circumstances of your case and fight for your full and fair compensation.
