Animal Attacks Compensation Claims
We may be a nation of dog lovers, with around 10 million dogs currently in the UK, but each year about a quarter of a million dog bites are recorded, with roughly 28,000 of these being facial bites. The injuries are invariably severe, and in young children they can be extremely serious or even life threatening.
If you or your child have been injured by an animal in the last three years, and you don’t believe you were to blame then speak to us today to find out if you could have a claim for compensation as a result of an animal attack.
Of the quarter of a million dog attacks in the UK each year approximately 70% of these are attacks on children, and these tend to be facial injuries of a serious nature. The 1991 Dangerous Dog Act introduced tough new laws which require owners of dogs deemed to be dangerous, such as Pit Bulls and Rottweilers, to ensure they are suitably muzzled and restrained, but sadly this doesn’t always happen.
An animal attack, whether by a dog or other animal such as a cat, ferret, bird, horse, bull or snake is likely to not only result in painful and serious injuries which may take a very long time to heal, if at all, but there are also likely to be serious psychological implications too. Many people who have been injured by an animal find that they suffer from panic attacks and anxiety, and find it difficult to go outside in public places.
We have extensive experience helping those people in the Manchester region who have been attacked by an animal that wasn’t their fault to claim the compensation they both need and deserve. Medical care and recovery, the loss of wages and the cost of adapting to a new way of life in many cases all adds up, and we have an excellent track record for getting people the compensation they need. We work on a no win no fee basis, which means you get to keep the full amount of compensation awarded, with no costs to you at all. Even if your claim in not successful, you won’t owe us a penny.
Claim For Compensation For Animal Attacks
Whilst the overwhelming majority of animal attacks and injuries caused by animals is attributable to dogs, there are many other animals which can cause injuries if not properly controlled, or if people are not sufficiently warned about the existence or nature of the animals. Both domesticated animals within the home, from ferrets and cats to snakes and lizards, to farmyard animals such as sheep, goats, horses and bulls can all cause injuries to people who may be entirely innocent. As long as you did not ignore clear signage, or do anything to deliberately provoke the animal then you stand an excellent chance of winning the compensation for your animal attack.
There is very rarely any need for an animal attack compensation claim to go to court, with almost every case being settled satisfactorily out of court, helping to make the process much easier for you, and helping you gain your compensation much sooner.
