Pages On: Animal Attacks

Animals are one of nature’s greatest gifts, but their nature can be somewhat hazardous to humans. A poorly trained or abused dog is likely to have detrimental behaviour towards people, and can bite and seriously injure them. If an animal attacks you, and there is sufficient evidence for conviction, then the owner is liable, and you will be entitled to personal injury compensation.

Dog, Pet & Animal Attack Compensation Claims

Posted in: Animal AttacksPublic Place Accidents

Animal related accidents, such as bites from dogs and other pets, are often the result of the owner’s negligence. If you are injured because of an animal and it was in no way your fault then you can make a claim for compensation, usually against the negligent owner (or their insurance company). An example of an owner’s negligence would be failure to muzzle a dog, particularly if they are aware that the dog has a history of attacking or biting people or if the dog is covered by the Dangerous…

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.
