We Only Represent The Injured.
If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, call the Rock Hill dog bite lawyers at the Lewis Law Firm. We’ve handled many serious dog bite injury claims and we can help you recover from this traumatic experience.
Dog bites are serious legal matters. Under South Carolina law, “If a person is bitten or otherwise attacked by a dog while the person is in a public place or is lawfully in a private place, including the property of the dog owner or person having the dog in the person’s care or keeping, the dog owner or person having the dog in the person’s care or keeping is liable for the damages suffered by the person bitten or otherwise attacked.”
Essentially, it doesn’t matter whether the owner knew the dog might attack. If the dog attacks someone without provocation, the owner is liable for the victim’s damages.
Dog bite claims can be very complicated because of:
- The serious nature of the injuries
- Insurance coverage issues regarding the dog’s owner
- Insurance coverage issues regarding the property where the attack took place
- Confusion about who may be legally responsible for the attack
With more than 80 years of combined experience, the Rock Hill dog bite injury lawyers at Lewis Law Firm can help guide you through this difficult period and answer any questions you may have.
