Making a Dog Bite Compensation Claim
Many people do not realise that they are able to claim financial compensation for injuries caused by the negligence of others. If you were attacked by a dog classified as dangerous under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, or your injury occurred as a direct result of the negligence of the dog's owner it is highly likely you will be able to claim financial compensation.
Under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, ˜specially controlled breeds must be registered, neutered and micro-chipped. Currently pit bull terriers, Japanese tosas, Argentine dogos and Brazilian mastiffs are subject to micro-chipping; if the attack you suffered involved one of these breeds, contact a specialist solicitor as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, no matter how much legislation the government introduces, the law cannot account for the reckless and negligent actions of dog owners.
Common Dog Bite Injuries
Injuries that typically lead to compensation claims include:
- abrasions and lacerations;
- tissue loss and avulsion;
- crush injuries, fractured bones, sprain injuries and scars;
- infections such as cellulitis and, very rarely, rabies;
- psychological injuries.
Whatever the nature of your injury, contact the law experts at Grieves Solicitors to find out if you have a valid claim for financial compensation.
