Were you or someone you love attacked by a dog in South Carolina and have questions about strict liability laws? Strict liability for dog bites means that the owner of a dog is liable for that injury that you sustained. In South Carolina, you don’t even need to necessarily be bitten by a dog just attacked. The dog comes running at you, and you fall over, you break your arm. That’s the dog owner’s fault because they should be containing their dog.

We all love dogs, especially here in America, but there are some bad dogs who have been trained to be very aggressive. And you need a lawyer like me on your side to make sure that you get your full recovery.

If you or someone you love was bitten by a dog in South Carolina, it’s important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights and maximize your recovery.
