Dog Bites



Injuries sustained in a dog attack can be serious and some might require extensive medical attention. Some examples of dog bite-related injuries that victims might sustain include the following.

  • Puncture wounds
  • Lacerations
  • Infection
  • Crushing injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Scaring
  • Disfigurement

North Carolina generally has a one bite rule, which protects the dog owner from liability the first time that the dog injures someone. Then, if the dog injures someone again, the owner will be liable, having known at this time that the dog had a history of injuring a person.  This may not be the case if the dog is defined as a Dangerous Dog under NC Statute Dangerous Dogs. § 67-4.1.
