Injuries caused by animals

Being attacked by an animal, for example, being bitten by a dog, can cause injury and give rise to a claim for compensation. If you were bitten by a dog or would like to claim compensation for an accident on the road caused by an animal, for example, if your car collided with a horse that escaped from a field and you were injured in the collision, then the animal’s owner may be liable to compensate you.

We can help you to pursue your claim for an injury caused by an animal. To do this, we will need as much evidence as possible about the incident and the circumstances around it, such as the previous behaviour of the dog or the methods used to prevent the horse from getting out of the field. It is particularly important to find out if the animal’s owner is insured or has the means to pay any compensation awarded. We will give you clear advice about what you can claim for and what will happen during the course of your claim. We will also advise you how your claim can be funded and in many cases offer a ‘no win, no fee’ option; this can be backed by legal expenses insurance to protect you from having to pay legal costs. We will explain all the available funding options to you.

Our team of skilled and experienced lawyers have had substantial successes with claims for injuries caused by animals and are happy to help you. We also give a free initial consultation. To discuss making a claim for your injury email Elaine Snell or phone 0117 904 6326.
