Dog bite injuries

Compensation for dog bite injuries

Being bitten by a dog is not only a painful but also can be a frightening experience. If you have been injured by a dog bite, then there is a strong chance you will be entitled to claim compensation.

Under the law, if the dog belongs to a species known to have a tendency to injure, then the owner of the dog is liable.

For those claims, the key facts to establish are:

  • The identity of the keeper of the dog
  • Contact details for the keeper
  • The breed of the dog
  • We will in early course identify whether the keeper of the dog has insurance to cover a claim such as yours. Most dog owners do.

With certain breeds of dogs, occasionally, it can be helpful to know whether there has been a previous pattern or history of aggressive or attacking behaviour from the particular dog.

If you are interested in making a compensation claim for a dog bite injury, please get in touch with us today for a confidential discussion.
