Bonnar Accident Law can help you claim compensation for a dog bite.
Dog bite compensation claims are brought by people who have been attacked by vicious and out of control animals. These attacks can be terrifying experiences for adults and children, often resulting in serious injury and disfigurement.
Despite numerous high-profile and distressing cases being regularly reported in the media, irresponsible dog owners continue to wreak havoc on the lives of innocent victims by failing to keep their dogs under control.
Children and the elderly are most at risk from dangerous dogs and extra vigilance is called for if owners are unwilling to keep their animals under control at all times.
We have successfully helped employees of the Royal Mail, Local Authorities and utilities with dog bite compensation claims against irresponsible dog owners for their injuries.
For immediate assistance across Scotland (we have six office locations), please call us free of charge on 0800 163 978 or complete a Free Online Claim Enquiry and let us explain your legal rights and options.
Have you been bitten by a dog?
If you or a member of your family have been bitten by a dog, Bonnar Accident Law can help you make a claim. We will ask you if you know the name and address of the owner which will help us find out whether the owner has pet or home insurance.
If you are unsure about the owner’s name, it is possible that the local police will be aware of the dog’s behavior and if so, they can help identify the owner. You may not be the only person to have been attacked.
We understand that you might be reluctant to make a claim for compensation against a friend or a neighbour. However, in cases where a dog is known to be regularly out of control and has a history of aggressive behaviour it might only be a matter of time before a tragedy occurs.
