Greenville Dog Bite Injury Lawyer

A person who is bitten or attacked by a dog may sustain serious injuries. Additionally, he or she may experience psychological trauma from the attack itself and the lasting physical pain, scarring or disfigurement. The serious nature of a dog bite makes this an important issue to discuss with an attorney. A lawyer experienced in handling cases of this nature can offer you invaluable guidance in making the right decisions about your case and can assist you in seeking financial damages that will help you move on.

With extensive personal injury experience including more than 150 jury trials, Greenville dog bite attorney Timothy E. Burch can offer you personalized attention and aggressive legal representation in handling your claim.

Dog Bites in Greenville, NC: Who is Responsible?

Dog bite laws in North Carolina are unfortunately rather complicated and offer protection to dog owners as opposed to dog bite victims. A dog owner will only be held strictly liable for injuries that his or her animal inflicts if the dog is deemed "dangerous." This means that the dog must have seriously injured someone in the past, is an animal used for dog fighting, or is designed by the appropriate municipal or county authority to be potentially dangerous. A dog owner may also be held accountable if he or she allows a dog to run at large at night, provided the dog is more than 6 months old and is unaccompanied by the owner. Permitting a dog to run at large is a misdemeanor offense that may be punishable by imprisonment and fines, in addition to a civil lawsuit that the dog bite victim may file against the owner.

Though dog bite laws may limit an injury victim's ability to recover damages, this does not mean that all is lost. An experienced attorney may still be able to help you seek justice for the injuries you have experienced.
