Experienced South Carolina Dog Bite Lawyers
Not all pets are cute and cuddly. Far too often, dangerous animals are not kept on a leash and not properly secured behind a fence, leading to devastating attacks. If you have been injured in a dog attack or hurt by another animal, an experienced personal injury lawyer may be able to help you secure compensation for your medical, financial and emotional damages.
At Lourie Law Firm LLC in Columbia, we are committed to getting justice for the victims of animal attacks in South Carolina. Our attorneys have many years of experience and understand what it takes to achieve the best possible results in personal injury cases.
South Carolina does not have a "one bite rule"; you have the right to be compensated if owner negligence was involved in your attack. To discuss your situation with a knowledgeable attorney, call us at 803-753-1856 or toll free at 866-734-9019.
Pet Owners are Responsible for Safety
Dog owners do not get a free pass when their dogs attack. Unless an attack victim was trespassing or breaking other laws at the time of the attack, liability falls solely on the shoulders of the pet's owner. In cases where a dog has attacked before and an owner has failed to take proper precautions, it may be possible to secure punitive damages in addition to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish and other economic losses.
Dog Attacks Involving Children
If your child has been attacked, there may be other issues involved, such as negligent supervision. We can help you pursue those claims in addition to seeking compensation for dog bite injuries. Our lawyers can also help you set up a conservatorship to protect the financial settlement your child receives.
