SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS
Dog attacks can be terrifying experiences for victims, leaving them with severe psychological trauma as well as the physical injuries sustained from bites or scratches. All dog owners have a responsibility to ensure their dog is kept under control in a public place due to the amount of damage they can cause to a person. If they fail to protect the public and an individual is attacked or injured they can be liable.
If you have been injured due to a dog attack you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries.
Our specialist personal injury solicitors have many years' experience in handling dog attack compensation claims and can help you get the compensation you deserve.
If you have been attacked by a dog in a public place, we advise that you take the following steps to increase your chances of a successful compensation claim:
Often, dog owners will not have any insurance to cover any injuries their dog may cause, in this case we may have to pursue a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). This particular area of law can be extremely complex but as we are experienced in handling these claims this should not dissuade you from making a dog attack compensation claim.
If you have been attacked by a dog and suffered a personal injury as a result, you deserve compensation for your injuries.
Your best interests are at the heart of everything we do and as such we will fight for the maximum amount of compensation at all times all on a no win, no fee basis.
A compensation claim does so much more than provide victims of dog attacks with the compensation they deserve, it also helps to make sure owners are made aware of the dangers their dog poses and are encouraged to make changes that can ensure the safety of the public.
