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 for dog bite and dog attack cases. In most cases the applicable
period is three years - although in certain circumstances the time period
can actually be shorter. For that reason it is advisable that anyone who
has been seriously bitten or injured in a dog attack 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.
