Mr. Montgomery has more than a decade’s worth of experience successfully handling all types of commercial vehicle accidents throughout upstate and midlands South Carolina.

Motorcycle Accidents

South Carolina is not known for very severe winters. The temperature is relatively mild most of the year which means that there is more time to enjoy riding a motorcycle. Motorcycles are thought of as relatively dangerous means of transportation and that may be true. However, in a motorcycle accident case the fact that you chose to ride a motorcycle does not impact the benefits and financial compensation you deserve although the insurance companies may lead you to believe otherwise. As with all personal injury claims the entire case needs to be reviewed, liable parties need to be identified and they must be held accountable for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. Mr. Montgomery will do that and more as your Greenville & Columbia motorcycle accident attorney.

Animal Attacks & Dog Bite Laws

Animal attacks occur on a daily basis in the United States with an average of 1,000 dog bites happening each day. Dog bites can inflict serious injuries, scarring, disfigurement, bone and nerve damage and wrongful death.

Under South Carolina dog bite laws if someone is bitten, maimed, mauled or otherwise attacked by a dog while the person is in a public place or is lawfully in a private place, including the property of the dog owner or person having the dog in the person’s care or keeping, the dog owner or person having the dog in the person’s care or keeping is liable for the damages suffered by the person bitten, mauled or otherwise attacked. If a person bitten or otherwise attacked is lawfully in a private place, including the property of the dog owner or person having the dog in the person’s care or keeping, when the person bitten or otherwise attacked is on the property in the performance of a duty imposed upon the person by the laws of this State, the ordinances of a political subdivision of this State, the laws of the United States of America including, but not limited to, postal regulations, or when the person bitten or otherwise attacked is on the property upon the invitation, express or implied, of the property owner or a lawful tenant or resident of the property.
