What are dog bite claims?
In North Carolina, dog bite claims in personal injury typically involve seeking compensation for injuries sustained due to a dog bite. North Carolina follows a “one-bite rule,” where the owner may be held liable if they were aware of the dog’s dangerous behavior or had reason to believe the dog could be aggressive. Victims of dog bites can pursue a personal injury claim to seek damages for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other losses resulting from the incident. It’s advisable to consult with an attorney for specific guidance on dog bite claims in North Carolina.
