Dog bites can result in painful and severe injuries that may require expensive surgeries or other medical treatments. If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, you have the right to take legal action and file a personal injury claim to obtain compensation for your injuries. The compensation you receive can go towards paying down the costly medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to your injuries. The dedicated legal team at Ronald S. Clement Attorney at Law are here to help you build and pursue a successful personal injury claim, so get in touch today.
Like many other states, South Carolina abides by “strict liability” statues, meaning that any dog bite victim may sue the animal’s owner for medical costs and damages. Essentially, if you are bitten by a dog and sustain an injury, you may pursue a personal injury claim against the dog’s owner in the hope of securing compensation. There are a few minor limitations, however—if you provoked the animal in any way, if you were trespassing, or if the animal was a working police dog, then you may not be eligible to file a claim. Whatever the circumstances of your injuries may be, it’s a good idea to reach out to our knowledgeable personal injury lawyers to learn more about your legal options.
Once you have received medical attention for your injuries, you should contact a skilled personal injury attorney to start preparing a successful claim. We understand how expensive dog bite injuries can be, especially if your injuries force you to miss work and lose out on wages. For dedicated and effective legal representation, contact Ronald S. Clement Attorney at Law as soon as possible. Together, we will fight to win you the compensation you are owed so that you can get your life back on track.
