Dogs are everywhere. They are the UK's favourite pet and, while we are not suggesting they all have a vicious streak, it is important to remember dogs are still animals with an unpredictable temperament and urge to defend.
An increasing number of dog attacks are being reported in the news and, as a result, the victims of these dreadful attacks or their friends and families have sought after compensation for their injuries.
YouClaim have helped many people pursue successful legal claims against the owners of violent and aggressive dogs, whether they are strangers or you know them. Our specialist solicitors have the expertise and knowledge to ensure your dog bite compensation claim is carried out quickly and effectively. Call today on 0800 10 757 95 or fill in an online enquiry form.
Dogs will attack the thing that is closest to them when they become agitated so if you are nearby you may be in danger of receiving a nasty nip or worse. They will go for the most visible body part which is usually a leg or an arm.
It is particularly important for children to be careful with dogs as their faces are at the right height to be bitten by them.
Although most dog bites are not fatal, many bites do require medical attention. The wound should be cleaned and the victim may need antibiotics, a tetanus shot, and/or rabies vaccination.
If you are bitten by a dog, the average estimated amount of compensation you could claim is around £3,000 for on body, minor scars for life. Once we have assessed your injuries, your YouClaim solicitor will be able to make a more accurate calculation of how much you are likely to be awarded in compensation.
When dogs become agitated there are a number of signs that they display including:
It is wise to use these signs as a warning in order to avoid being a victim of a dog attack.
We are associated with a panel of no win, no fee solicitors who have helped people receive compensation after a violent dog attack. Read about two of our previous dog bite claim success stories here and here.
