Dog Bite in Myrtle Beach SC
Myrtle Beach Dog Bite Injury Lawyers
Have you or a loved one suffered personal injury from a dog bite in Myrtle Beach or the surrounding areas? Perhaps you were taking a stroll in the neighborhood when out of nowhere a dog attacked you. Perhaps your son was playing with his friends in your backyard when the neighbor’s dog jumped the fence and attacked your son.
Personal injury might not be the only consequence of a dog bite. You might be so traumatized by the attack that you no longer want to take strolls in the neighborhood. Your son might be traumatized so that he no longer wants to play outside with his friends. The mental distress that can follow a dog attack can be just as great as the physical injury.
The good news is you can be compensated for both your physical injury and mental distress that resulted from the dog attack. Dog owners are held strictly liable for the damage that they cause to third parties. As a victim, you must have been in a place you were legally entitled to be and you must not have provoked the dog.
If you are attacked by a dog, file a police report. You should also call your local animal services to report the dog bite so that DHEC can perform an investigation into the bite. If you have been bitten, the dog will have to be quarantined for a period of time. Make sure to take pictures of the location where the attack occurred and the physical injuries. Lastly, but most importantly, call your dog bite attorney at The Lovely Law Firm 843-839-4111 to schedule a Free Case Evaluation regarding the dog attack.
