Dog Bite Law

Dog Bite Law

Injuries suffered as a result of a dog bite can be serious, long lasting and may result in the need for surgery. Our expert solicitors have the legal knowledge and can assist you in making a claim for compensation if you have sustained an injury as a result of being bitten or attacked by a dog. Our Middlesbrough based team are happy to help so get in touch today to discuss your case through a free initial consultation.

Any dog can be dangerous if they have not been trained or controlled by their owner. Dog owners are under a duty to ensure that their dog is under control and does not harm another person. Ultimately the mere fact that their dog could potentially bite someone suggests that the owner of the dog has been negligent as they’ve failed to properly control the dog.

If you have been subject to a dog bite injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation for financial losses as a rest of your injuries such as loss of earnings, medical expenses, travel expenses and for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries.

Your Compensation Claim

Regardless of the severity of the injury you have suffered, whether it’s a scratch to your skin or if it is more serious and you have required surgery, our team will take the most professional yet empathetic approach to filing your claim.

Hopefully getting the compensation that you deserve and so that you can prioritise your recovery. Our specialist personal injury solicitors can advise and assist you in making that claim. We aim to take away the stress by liaising with all of the parties involved, such as the dog owner, the police and any witnesses involved.

If unfortunately you have suffered a dog bite, please don’t hesitate to contact our specialist personal injury solicitors to discuss the strength and moving forward with your case.
