South Carolina Dog Bite Attorney

Dogs are not always man’s best friend, especially when they don’t belong to you. Whether they are just being protective, or they sense something about you that is threatening, dogs act on instinct. When they do, serious injuries can be suffered and the wounds are particularly painful. In most situations, the dog owner can be held legally accountable for the harm their pet causes.

Auger & Auger can work with you to pursue a claim for the monetary damages you deserve after the dog bite incident.

What Are My Rights after a Dog Bite?

An Auger & Auger South Carolina dog bite attorney is available to represent you and pursue a claim for proper compensation for your losses. We know there are strict laws in place holding dog owners liable if their animals bite or attack someone in public. Additionally they are responsible if their pet bites or attacks someone who is lawfully on private property.

Unless you provoked the dog, or were trespassing, you will typically be able to hold the dog owner accountable for the injuries and damages you have sustained. However, you may still need to show proof that the dog actually harmed you, and may be required to demonstrate the extent of the damage you endured.

How Can I Obtain Compensation for Dog Bite Injuries?

In most cases, homeowners or renters are required to carry insurance covering any attack from an animal that lives at their property. Compensation should cover medical bills, and loss of income or disabilities sustained. Typically, the insurance companies are responsible for providing compensation, and will often wish to negotiate a settlement to release them from further obligations.

Auger & Auger can help you to negotiate the most favorable settlement agreement possible to ensure you get the maximum in compensation for the damage the dog caused you to suffer. Sometimes, no settlement can be reached, and when this happens you will need an attorney who can help you pursue a claim in civil court. Our firm is prepared and ready to assist you in presenting your case and convincing a jury to award the compensation you deserve.

How Can a South Carolina Dog Bite Attorney Help Me?

At Auger & Auger, our South Carolina dog bite attorney is highly familiar with regulations and laws regarding dog bites — and we can advocate for you to make the legal system work so you can be fairly compensated for an animal attack.
