Dog Bite Compensation Claims
Owning a dog and being around animals is something most of us love. And whilst the majority of our four legged friends have a docile and playful temperament, there are unfortunately occasions when you may come into contact with a dangerous dog. We understand that dog bites and more serious cases of dog attacks can be a frightening experience for everyone involved. That’s why we will assign your case to a specialist solicitor who will take care of you and your family when they need it most.
What is the law concerning dangerous dogs?
The Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 brought in controls for certain breeds of dog which are considered more dangerous than others. The four outlawed breeds are:
- Pit Bull Terrier
- Japanese Tosa
- Dogo Argentino
- Fila Brasileiro
What you need to know
After any incident involving a dog attack where you have been bitten by a dog, you should contact the police right away. If you are in any doubt about the severity of the dog bite, you should have it checked by a medical professional.
We also recommend you follow the steps below so that we can handle your claim as quickly as possible:
- take the name and address of the dog’s owner
- contact any eye witnesses
- contact your local dog warden
- find out if the dog has a history of aggressive behaviour
- take photographs of your injuries and any scarring
