Dog Bites

Under South Carolina law a dog owner strictly liable for damages suffered by an individual who is “bitten or otherwise attacked.” For these injuries related to a dog bite, the victim may recover medical expenses (current and future), damages for emotional distress and punitive damages among others from the dog owner. Additionally, a family member may also recover under South Carolina law. This is known as “bystander recovery” and allows for a bystander to recover damages due to the emotional distress that occurred as a result of witnessing the attack.
