Being attacked by a pet such as a dog or any other animal for that matter (for example at the zoo, or a kick from a horse) can be quite a traumatic experience. Many people are not aware that if you are injured because of such an attack then you could be entitled to claim compensation. An injury can be physical, psychological or both and the compensation will be paid out by either the pet’s owners or by their insurance company.

Dog Attack Injury Claims

You can make a personal injury claim because animal owners have a duty of care to members of the public to protect them from the animals under their care. If the animal involved is a dog, such as a Pitt bull or a Rottweiler, then this duty of care is heightened by legislation and a compensation claim can be brought under the Dangerous Dogs Act. Under this legislation dangerous dogs have to be registered and owners are responsible for ensuring that the dog is not a danger to the public by putting the dog on a leash and / or ensuring it wears a muzzle. Any compensation claim is made even stronger if it can be established that the owner knew that the animal was aggressive and / or has caused an injury in the past.

Make a Claim for Dog, Pet or Animal Injury

In order to bring a claim for compensation following an injury involving pets or other animals you must instruct a personal injury solicitor** in Leeds to bring a claim on your behalf within three years of the date the injury was sustained. Instructing a Leeds accident claims lawyer will usually cost nothing as most firms will work on a no win no fee* basis.

The amount of compensation you can claim will depend on the extent of your injuries, but if your claim is successful then as well as compensation for your injuries, you will also be able to claim other consequential losses such as medical expenses and if you are unable to return to work (either temporarily or permanently) then loss of income.
