Any dog is capable of causing injury, but smaller dogs usually do not have
the strength to inflict
catastrophic injuries. Certain breeds tend to be more aggressive than others. No matter what

are here to help you file a claim.
Statistically, some of the most dangerous breeds of dogs are:
- Pit bull
- German shepherd
- Doberman pincer
- Alaskan malamute

animal attack caused you to suffer serious injuries, or if a neighbor's
nervous dog attacked your loved one,

Understanding the One-Bite Rule
North Carolina is one of 18 states that still follow the one-bite rule.
Under this law, a dog owner is not responsible for an attack if the dog
was not previously dangerous or vicious. However, if the dog has been
involved in at least one biting incident, its owner is responsible for
all subsequent attacks. This does
not mean that if a dog with no history of viciousness bites you, you can’t
seek compensation. Bite victims may bring a claim against an owner if
the dog was running around loose at night or if, for some reason, the
dog was likely to be dangerous to others. In other words, if the owner
was in some way negligent, you may bring a claim—even if the dog
has never attacked anyone before.
