There are thousands of dog attacks in the UK every year. If you have been bitten by a dog and are looking to claim compensation call us today on 0800 131 3636.
Though most dog attacks don’t have serious consequences, some result in extremely serious injuries and cause severe psychological trauma. We regularly come across dog bite victims who don’t realise that they have grounds for a compensation claim. Just because an accident was caused by a dog, it doesn’t mean that you cannot make a dog bite compensation claim.
Making a dog bite injury claim
The law states that if you’ve suffered as a result of the negligence or violence of another person, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. In almost all cases, dog attacks can be directly attributed to the negligence of their owners. If this is the case, you are likely to have a strong case for compensation.
Dog attacks can have extremely severe consequences. A vicious dog attack can result in extreme facial scarring, upper body injuries and severe psychological trauma. An attack of this severity can take years to recover from. Recovery may involve medical treatment, rehabilitation, psychological treatment and extensive cosmetic surgery.
The aim of a dog bite compensation claim is to provide the victim with access to the necessary medical treatment to minimise the pain and trauma and, hopefully, help them make a full recovery.
Due to the unique nature of dog bite compensation claims it’s important that you seek appropriate legal representation. We have a team of fully qualified solicitors who have extensive experience making this type of claim. In the past we’ve helped many victims of dog attacks get the compensation they need to begin their recovery.
