South Carolina Dog Bite Laws

South Carolina follows a "strict liability" rule when it comes to dog bites. This means that a dog owner, or other person having a dog in his or her “care or keeping,” can be held liable for any damage or injuries caused when their dog bites or otherwise attacks someone. Unlike some states, South Carolina does not follow the “one-bite rule,” meaning that it does not matter if the owner knew the dog was dangerous (e.g., the dog had previously bitten someone). 

However, exceptions to “strict liability” exist, and dog owners can try to escape liability as a result. For example, the victim of a dog bite must be in a public place or lawfully in a private place, and must not have provoked the dog. This makes having legal representation in dog bite cases crucial, especially when dealing with a pet owner who may try to claim innocence under this rule.
