Are you aware that there is no 'one bite rule' in South Carolina? In other words, you do not have to prove that the dog has bitten before in order to be entitled to damages for your injuries. South Carolina has strict liability for dog bites. This means that if you are bitten by a dog, the dog owner is responsible for your injuries in most cases. One of our experienced attorneys can help advise you on the law as it relates to your specific case.
You may be surprised to learn that just because you are injured on someone else's property, the property owner is not automatically responsible for your injuries. South Carolina has very strict laws regarding when an injured party can recover damages from the property owner. Often, injured parties contact the property owner and their insurance carriers only to have their claims denied. It is important to speak with an experienced attorney to determine if the denial is justified under South Carolina law. We regularly obtain settlements for clients who previously received denials from the insurance company. You may not need to take no for an answer. Consult with one of our attorneys about the facts of your case.
