Have you suffered an injury as a result of another’s animal, such as a dog? If so, then you could be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim with our solicitors** for Birmingham. This is because owners have a duty of care towards other members of the public, namely to ensure that their pet does not cause harm. This duty of care is further increased where an owner is aware that the animal aggressive and has attacked in the past. So if you have suffered an injury from an animal attack, we can help you claim.
Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
A dog, pet or other animal attack can be physically painful and psychologically traumatising. You can make a compensation claim for both these types of injuries. Whilst any animal can cause injury, the most common claims are made against dog bites. Whilst dog bites are seldom fatal, thousands of people, particularly young children, are attacked, injured and require medical attention every year because of dogs.
The most common claims are against Pitbull Terriers and Rottweilers, although any dog can be dangerous. There is even statutory protection for members of the public against violent dogs. The Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 imposes a duty on owners to ensure that their dogs are muzzled in public. To increase your chances of making a successful claim, you would have to show that the dog was covered by the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 and that the owner knew or ought to have known that the dog was dangerous.
