Dog Bites Cause Serious Physical And Emotional Harm

Strict Liability For Dog Bites

In personal injury cases, one of the most common tactics used by the insurance companies to deny claims is to claim contributory negligence on the part of the injury victim. Depending on the circumstances, this defense may not apply in dog bite cases, especially if the dog is a “dangerous dog” as defined under North Carolina law. In many cases, if a dog bites you, the owner may be strictly liable to you for the dog’s attack, and the owner’s insurance company is responsible for providing you with compensation. Also there is no longer a “one free bite” rule for “non-dangerous” dogs under North Carolina law.

Fighting Aggressively For You

We will fight to ensure that any settlement or verdict supplies you with the full compensation you need to cover current and future medical expenses as well as other damages.
