Dog Bite Law

If you’ve been attacked by a dog and sustained injuries, whether physical or psychological, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim.

Our lawyers are experts in dealing with dog bite claims. We’ve handled claims from incidents resulting in minor scratches and puncture wounds to severe injuries requiring extensive reconstructive plastic surgery. Whatever your injury, we’ll work tirelessly on your behalf to ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to.

Dog bite claims

Dog bite incidents are on the rise. Any dog, whatever its breed, can become aggressive if it is not trained or socialised properly. All dog owners are responsible for ensuring their dog is fully trained and under control.

It’s estimated that more than 200,000 people are bitten by dogs every year in England. Such incidents are often extremely traumatic and can result in serious psychological as well as physical injuries.

Our team have dealt with a wide variety of dog bite claims over the years and have significant experience and expertise in the complexities of this area of the law. Our specialist knowledge in this area means we provide the best possible advice and service. Our lawyers are committed to securing the maximum possible compensation for the victims of dog bites.

Exceptional client care

We understand the impact a dog bite can have on your life and are dedicated to securing compensation to help you make the best possible recovery. This includes any medical and rehabilitation treatment needed, including private plastic surgery, in addition to compensation to help alleviate any financial difficulties if you have required time off work.

We recognise that the injuries sustained may be psychological as well as physical. We fight for compensation to cover counselling and other treatments to ensure you make the best possible recovery in the quickest time. Your welfare is extremely important to us, with our lawyers providing a personal service tailored to your specific circumstances. We offer home and hospital visits and have interview facilities throughout England and Wales.
