Being attacked and injured by an animal can be a terrifying experience and can often leave victims traumatised for years. As well as leaving painful scars, the psychological damage caused by a dog bite or other animal attack can last for years and leave victims scared to do things that the rest of us take for granted each day, such as going for a walk or in severe cases even leaving the house.
Here at Legal Request we are experts in dealing with such cases, and have a proven track record of helping people claim compensation for animal attacks, so they can begin to rebuild their lives.
If you or a member of your family have suffered an injury as a result of an animal attack in the last three years you may be entitled to compensation. Read on to find out how Legal Request can help you.
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. This means that you will have to prove that a pet owner or relevant authority was negligent toward the control of the animal - and this negligence led to your injury. Contact us at Legal Request and our experts will be able to tell you whether you are able to make a claim.
As in all personal injury claims, it is crucial that you:
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, you may be entitled to a large compensation claim...
You have made this experience easy and hassle free. I have been kept up-to-date at all times regarding my case and have recently been informed of the compensation that I am due to receive. Very good service all round thank you.
