Animal Attack Claims

Injuries from animal attacks can be serious and are always upsetting, especially when a child is the victim. And if you have suffered from an animal attack as a result of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to claim for compensation.
Owners have a legal responsibility to ensure their animals are kept under control when in public and to prevent them from making unprovoked attacks. Acts like the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 and the Animal Act 1971 are designed to protect the public from personal injury from dog attacks and animal attacks.
Dog attacks are the most common type of animal attacks but injuries can be caused by other domestic animals including rats, cats, ferrets and birds.  

Dog Attack and Animal Attack Compensation

NHS statistics reveal that dog attacks have increased in England in recent years to almost 4,000 a year, with dog bites being the most common injury type. If the dog has a history of aggressive behaviour but the owner has failed to take precautionary measures like a muzzle and lead, the owner may be liable for a dog attack.

Similarly, if the person responsible for an animal that causes injuries in an attack can be shown to have been negligent and that this resulted in the attack, a claim for compensation may be possible.

If the dog or animal in question is insured, making animal attack claims is easier because there are means of paying compensation. Many individuals wouldn’t be able to pay personally, which can make a claim difficult to pursue.

However your injury occurred, if you’ve been the victim of a dog attack or animal attack our specialist personal injury solicitors will listen to you and advise you of your options. If you decide to make a claim for compensation, it won’t cost you a penny and you’ll be supported throughout the process – with 100% compensation guaranteed for a successful outcome thanks to our No Win No Fee policy.
