Dog Bites/Dog Attacks/Accidents caused by animals

Dog Bites/Dog Attacks/Accidents caused by animals

Although known as mans best friend, just like all animals dogs can at times be very unpredictable.

The law requires all animal owners to be responsible for ensuring that their animals do not cause harm to others and being the victim of a dog attack or being injured by any animal can be extremely traumatic, often leaving the victim with both physical and psychological scars.

Typical accidents involving animals include:

  • Dog bites and dog attacks in parks and public places
  • Dog bites and dog attacks on postmen and other delivery workers
  • Dog bites and dog attacks when on somebody else’s property
  • Accidents involving horseriding including being kicked or thrown by horses and similar animals
  • Road accidents caused by farm animals straying or escaping onto country lanes
  • People who work with or have contact with animals on a day to day basis

If you have been a victim of a dog attack, or have been involved in an accident caused by an animal owner failing to restrain or control their animal then it is important that you report the incident as soon as possible to the Police, and also seek medical attention straight away to ensure that for example puncture wounds do not become infected.

We have legal experts at Williamsons who can guide you through what can be a very complexed process in order to maximise the chances of you receiving adequate compensation. In order to find out if you can claim call us today on freephone 0800 298 6013 or complete the contact form below.

    I chose Williamsons to act as my conveyancers and I have been super impressed with their professionalism and ethics to act on behalf of their client. My process was a long one, due to no fault on Williamsons part, but they never dropped the ball and continued to chase the other party until we got the answers we needed. I would choose them again in a heart beat and recommend their services.

    Mr T W

    Beth Dyson and colleagues have been excellent during the purchase of my new house. Very responsive to email and phone queries, polite and professional, and the sale has been completed in 13 weeks from acceptance of the offer to completion. Given the current COVID-19 situation and how that has impacted on everyone, that's great. Thanks to everyone at Williamsons for making buying my new home so straightforward!

    Well from the moment I met Wayne Walker his professionalism,clarity of thought, and aim to do the best job he can were all evident. He has been involved with my family for five years nearly and has always made me feel as though my views were relevant and integral to furthering the case. Wayne has highly developed organisational skills and we always felt just ‘looked after’ by Wayne snd Williamsons in getting through the very worst of times. Wayne sometimes needed to encourage me to look at things from a different perspective and he always achieved this with firm kindness. Wayne is a great professional but more importantly a fundamentally great human being. I will always recommend Williamsons and especially on the subject of clinical negligence I will always recommend Wayne. Full job well done start to finish. Thanks Wayne there are no words.

    Williamsons Solicitors supported our family to succeed to a very high level. We cannot thank Sarah Jackson enough for her incredible support, dedication and commitment to understanding the finest detail of our case. Her dedication was phonememonal and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her in a heartbeat. Thank you for bringing closure to our case and for supporting us one hundred percent. We were informed at every stage within the case and knew we were in safe professional hands throughout. Many thanks, Mr and Mrs Appleton.

    Williamsons solicitors were professional, caring and efficient. They dealt with what was, a very upsetting experience I had via medical negligence. They kept me up to date, enquired about my well-being and were always available to either speak to me when I had concerns or answered my emails. They ensured that the compensation I finally received was in my best interests by advising what they thought was a too low first offer of settlement. I cannot thank them enough for the way they handled my case and for pushing for a better higher settlement figure. I would definitely use them again should I ever be in a position to need them Thank you so much.
