Animal and Dog Bites

Many millions of people in the United States are attacked and bitten by dogs on an annual basis, and many are serious enough to require medical attention. Injuries from dog and animal bites and attacks can be severe, extremely painful and potentially cause serious and permanent scarring. Some dog and animal maulings even lead to death. Unfortunately, children and elderly adults are often the most vulnerable to dog and animal bites and attacks.

South Carolina does not award dogs “one free bite” like some other states. The owner, or the person in control of a dog, is responsible for their dog. If someone is in a place they are lawfully allowed to be, and is bitten or attacked by a dog, the owners of dogs, or the person in control of the dog, may be responsible when bites, attacks or maulings occur, especially if the animal has a known propensity to be vicious, attack or bite.
