• Seek immediate medical assistance. If you are bitten by a dog in South Carolina, you should, as with any personal injury, seek immediate medical assistance. Dog bites pose a serious risk for infection and scarring, and a physician should be contacted immediately for treatment.  If the bite from a dog attack is serious and you or a loved one are in immediate medical distress, call an ambulance or go to an emergency room as quickly as possible.
  • Identify the Dog that bit you. You should try to write down all of the contact information of the dog owner, including their name, address, and telephone number. It might also be helpful to find out the name of their insurance company, as well as contact information for any witnesses to the dog bite incident. Also, be sure to take note of exactly where the dog bite occurred.
  • Have photos taken of the dog bit injuries. As soon as practical, take photographs of all visible injuries and any torn or bloody clothing. Additionally, if possible, take pictures of the dog itself and the location of the incident.
  • Any and all information that you collect can be helpful for your dog bite case. Your South Carolina dog bite attorney will then be able to evaluate the evidence and help you receive compensation for your injuries.
