South Carolina's Statute of Limitations for Dog Bite Cases

South Carolina's Statute of Limitations for Dog Bite Cases

A Statute of Limitations is a law that limits the time you have to file a claim for injuries. South Carolina's Statute of Limitations covers injuries from dog bite and dog attack cases. In most cases, the applicable period is three years - although in certain circumstances the period can be shorter. For that reason, anyone who has been seriously bitten or injured in a dog attack should contact a dog bite lawyer as soon as possible. Compensation may include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering as well as compensation for any scaring or cosmetic injuries.

Under certain circumstances, a child who was injured in a dog attack can have their Statute of Limitations period open up again for one year beginning on their 18th birthday. If you think that this may apply in your case it is recommended that you contact a dog bite attorney as soon as possible.
