What sort of animal attacks am I able to claim for?

The most common type of animal attacks are caused by domestic pets. Dogs are the most common, but other animal attacks often involve animals such as horses, cattle and zoo animals.

But there are any number of animals that we may come into contact with that could potentially cause injury. The important part of any animal claim is that you are able to prove blame in court.

What about dog attacks? Tell me more...

Over the past year there has been a number of high profile dog attacks in the UK, some sadly resulting in death. However, there have also been thousands that may not have reached the newspapers, but can be severe enough to cause the victim great distress and anxiety for months or even years to come.

The rise in popularity of notoriously aggressive breeds such as Rottweillers and Pit Bulls has sadly led to an increase in attacks on humans and often on children. There are stringent laws in the UK as to how owners should control such dogs, and all too often attacks are caused by owners neglecting these rules and failing to control their animals. For more information on dog and all animal attacks, contact one of our experts and we will quickly be able to tell you whether or not you may have a compensation claim.

Remember - if you are able to prove that the owner was aware of the potentially aggressive nature of their pet, but neglected his/her responsibility to keep the animal on a lead and you were subsequently injured as a result. Certain types of breed are automatically covered within the dangerous dogs act, 1991, which can also carry criminal scanctions.
