Pages On: Animal Attacks

Animals are one of nature’s greatest gifts, but their nature can be somewhat hazardous to humans. A poorly trained or abused dog is likely to have detrimental behaviour towards people, and can bite and seriously injure them. If an animal attacks you, and there is sufficient evidence for conviction, then the owner is liable, and you will be entitled to personal injury compensation.

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.
