Charleston Dog Bite Lawyer

Holding Dog Owners Accountable

Dog owners have a responsibility to protect the public from their animals. If an owner knew their dog was aggressive and failed to take the necessary precautions, that owner should be held accountable. Failing to file a claim against neglectful or irresponsible owners puts others at risk. Troy Law Firm PLLC can help you through the process of filing an injury claim. Our dog bite attorney in Charleston has over 25 years of experience handling cases like these.

Keeping Pets Appropriately Restrained

Even a dog that was not formerly aggressive may attack if they feel their owner is threatened. Many dog bites can be avoided by owners respecting local leash laws. While certain parks allow off-leash roaming, dogs mostly are required to be on a leash. In addition, if an owner senses that his or her dog has an aggressive nature, that owner has an obligation to take necessary measures to make sure the pet does not bite an innocent bystander.

If you've been bitten by a dog, you may have suffered:

  • Lacerations
  • Fractures
  • Broken bones
  • Significant psychological damage
  • Permanent scarring
  • Permanent disfigurement

Children are especially at risk for dog bites because they are often eye-level with the animals and an easy target. They are also more vulnerable to suffering from catastrophic and permanent injuries. If you've found yourself in this devastating situation, contact our dog bite attorney in Charleston for help as soon as possible.

Compassionate Counsel in a Difficult Time

Being attacked by a dog is not only physically painful but can also be emotionally distressing. You may suffer a lifetime of post-traumatic stress symptoms, or your child may never feel comfortable around dogs again. For this reason, it is important to seek professional legal counsel to discover your options regarding compensation.

You don't want to add the stress of paying impossible medical bills on top of the emotional healing you are likely to undergo. Instead, let Troy Law Firm pursue a personal injury or premises liability claim for you.
