Dog Bite Claim
If you have been bitten by a dog then you will have been through an awful ordeal which will probably have left you not only with physical injuries but also psychological trauma which may well stay with you forever.
Dogs – are they really Man’s best friend?
Whether you can bring a claim for dog bite compensation depends on a whole host of factors and it is important that you contact a solicitor who specialises in dog bite claims so that you can receive the best advice and so your position can be fully protected.
The Law – Is One Bite really Alright?
In essence dog owners are under an obligation in law to keep their animal under proper control and also to make sure that it does not behave in an aggressive or anti-social way. The law places importance upon the dog owner’s state of knowledge and whether the owner was aware of their dog’s aggressive tendencies before the dog bite accident. This is why it is often said that a dog is allowed to have one bite before the owner is held responsible. This is a wide generalisation and exceptions apply particularly if the breed has a propensity for aggression and must be muzzled when out and about.
