Our legal advice is second to none across a range of
key legal specialisms, providing you with the expert
assistance you require.

Accident caused by animals

Many people do not think that they can claim compensation if they have been injured by an animal.  The most common example of this is if you are attacked by a dog.

Many people suffer bites and other injuries from dogs every year.  It is possible to consider a claim against the owner of the dog in certain circumstances.

Our personal injury lawyers can advise you whether you have a claim and how to claim.  If you do have a claim for compensation we can then process your claim as quickly as possible and aim to obtain the maximum amount of compensation.

These claims are often covered by the owners insurance company.

If you have been attacked by a dog or suffered an injury due to any other animal, then it is always advisable to report the incident to the police in the first instance and to obtain the animal owner’s details.
