Dog bite compensation

It is important that you realise these claims are not easy to make and that certain criteria needs to be in place before you proceed with your case.

Generally speaking if a dog has a history of being aggressive and is known to be dangerous then any owner who fails to safeguard the public may be held liable.

The hard part is determining and proving that there is a record of previous incidents or that the dog does have aggressive tendencies. It is sometimes possible to prove that a dog by its very nature or breed could and should warrant extra care on the part of the owner and if an incident occurs then liability may attach.

Each case must be assessed on its own merits.

In order to have a reasonable chance of success in making a claim you must:  

  1. Identify the owner and provide his or her address.
  2. Consider reporting the attack to the police. You may or may not be the first victim but most certainly wont be the last.
  3. Try to determine if the dog owner has either Pet insurance or Home & Contents insurance. Both types of insurance will generally cover legal liability for the owner.

This means that there is a compensator who has the means to pay your claim. Most individuals do not.

If you think you might have a personal injury claim following an attack by a dog – please complete the brief form opposite. Provide as much detail as you can.

Our team will respond to all written enquiries within 1 hour am-8pm.
