Dog Bite Compensation – Claiming Against Owners After an Attack
Being bitten by a dangerous or out of control dog can be extremely frightening and stressful. You could end up with severe injuries, plus the psychological trauma that tends to manifest itself after an animal attack.
People who own dogs have a legal responsibility to ensure that members of the public, children, and workers are protected from such instances.
Because of this, it’s possible to claim for compensation for a dog bite or attack in Bristol and the UK, and with the support of our solicitors and lawyers you are in good hands.
How To Make A Dog Bite Claim in Bristol
When you call us we will give you the guidance you need in order to be successful in a compensation claim, but there are some aspects which you can already get done in order to support your case. These include:
- Knowing the identity of the animal’s owner
- Having a police report for the attack
- Getting details of any witnesses who saw the incident
- Knowledge of prior bad behaviour by the dog
- Photographic evidence of the bite wounds and injuries
- Having medical treatment and evidence
Even if you cannot supply all of the above please still call us as we can guide you through the process and hope to get to a satisfactory conclusion.
