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.
