Columbia Dog Bite Nerve Damage Lawyers

If you or someone you love has suffered nerve damage from a dog bite, hold the owners liable with the help of Goings Law Firm, LLC. Dog owners are responsible for any damage or injuries caused by their pets. Owners have the obligation of taking every precaution to prevent their pets from causing harm to others. When they fail in this responsibility, people can get hurt.

It is unacceptable for an innocent person to suffer an attack from an animal because of the owner’s negligence. At Goings Law Firm, LLC, we are dedicated to achieving justice to those who are attacked by dogs. If you are suffering from nerve damage, our Columbia dog bite attorneys can help you receive just compensation. To learn more about your legal options, contact us today at (803) 350-9230.

Do You Need a Lawyer?

If you have been a victim of a dog bite that caused nerve damage, you could be entitled to compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages if you cannot work, emotional distress caused by the trauma, and more. In South Carolina, the owner is responsible for all the actions of their pets, even when the pet is not known to have a history of violence. Owners are strictly liable for harm caused to innocent victims. However, dog owners will likely try to avoid paying you your rightful compensation, often arguing that you provoked the dog.

An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you fight for the compensation you deserve. They know the most effective strategies to handle dog bite cases, and can win you a higher compensation than you likely could on your own.

Cases We Handle

Depending on the severity and circumstances of your dog bite, there are various types of nerve damage you can suffer from, including:

  • Neurapraxia: The least serious kind of nerve damage, which can cause a temporary loss of function.
  • Axonotmesis: This occurs when a nerve is stretched, potentially causing paralysis. This is more serious than neurapraxia, and it may take a lot longer to heal from.
  • Neurotmesis: This occurs when there is permanent damage to the nerve.

Regardless of the severity of your nerve damage or how long recovery time is expected to be, you can still recover compensation for your injuries from the owner of the dog. Depending on the details of your case, you may be eligible for compensation for expenses including:

  • Medical bills
  • Physical therapy
  • Temporary or permanent disability
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma

A dog bite lawyer from Goings Law Firm, LLC can help you determine what compensation you may be eligible for by discussing the details of your case.

Signs of Nerve Damage

The hands, neck, torso, and many other parts of the human body have nerves near the surface of the skin. When a dog attacks or bites using the immense strength in their jaw, this can cause the nerves to be penetrated and damaged, causing serious injuries. Some symptoms of nerve damage may include:

  • Weakness
  • Burning
  • Numbness
  • Paralysis
  • Permanent damage

All of these symptoms are signs that you have suffered nerve damage. Persisting symptoms may prevent you from working or from going about your normal day. If you are experiencing signs of nerve damage following a dog bite, contact our offices to speak to our experienced personal injury lawyers about getting the compensation you need and deserve following a traumatic dog attack.
