If you’ve been bitten or attacked by a dog, we recommend seeking medical attention for your injury. Dog bites can easily become infected and commonly appear less serious than they are. By seeking medical attention, you can be given the peace of mind that your injury isn’t going to get worse.
Also, once you’ve sought medical attention, your medical records can be used to support your dog bite claim if you choose to pursue one.
We also recommend making a note of the dog owner’s details, such as their name and address. Your solicitor will need these details to carry out your claim.
Dog bites while on holiday
If you were bitten by a dog whilst on holiday, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Dogs abroad can carry rabies or other viruses that can be harmful or fatal to humans.
Children and dog attacks
We know how hard it can be to see a loved one suffer an injury. If your child has been injured as the result of a dog attack, we’re sorry. We can’t take away what happened to them, but we can help them get the support they need to make a recovery.
We can help you make a compensation claim for the injury your child has suffered, as well as the psychological impact it might have had.
