A Winston-Salem man recently got bitten by a dog. Normally, we think little of these stories. Person gets bit, gets a few stitches, no big deal. This gentleman had flesh ripped from bone. Ligaments torn. He required serious medical treatment. Now he is $60,000 in debt. Unfortunately, dogs get one free bite in North Carolina. Generally speaking, if a dog has not attacked before, it is virtually impossible to show that it is foreseeable that the dog poses a danger to the public. If you can not prove that such an attack was foreseeable, you can not prove your case.
