Home Personal Injury Pet Attacks

If you’ve been attacked, you need more than medical attention.

While nothing is more important than prompt medical treatment, there are some damages that medicine can’t fix. I will fight on your behalf to help make sure those don’t go unnoticed anad the responsible parties are held to account.

While pets can be wonderful companions and provide many benefits to their owners, they can cause devastating injuries if they bite or otherwise attack a person. Even docile animals can attack and cause serious injuries. In fact, in the United States last year, there were an estimated 4.7 million dog bites — nearly 800,000 of those required medical attention.

In South Carolina, a pet’s owner is strictly liable for animal attacks, which means the owner is legally responsible for the consequences if the pet attacks without provocation. Pets can cause severe injuries when they attack, including wounds that can become infected and permanent scarring. There can also be mental stress caused by the attack.

If you’ve been bitten or attacked by a dog, cat or other pet, it’s critical that you talk to an attorney with knowledge and experience in this area of the law. Little is more important than competent medical care; however, an experienced attorney can help you navigate the complex web of insurance companies, healthcare experts and legal issues to ensure you get fair compensation for your injuries. I have evaluated, negotiated and tried numerous cases stemming from animal bites, so I have the experience you need to help you do just that.
