Dogs are known to bite over 200,000 people each year in the UK. Since the rules laid out in the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 were tightened up, more offenders will receive more serious sentences, including prison if they are held to have been responsible for injuries caused by their pet. If an animal causes injury, loss or damage it may be possible for you to claim compensation, often against the dog’s owner, and our team of specialist Wakefield personal injury solicitors** will be able to advise you on how to make a claim.

Dog Bite Injury Lawyers

Physical injuries are not the only kind of injury, as a dog bite could certainly cause psychological trauma, and depending on the extent of the injuries you have suffered, you may no longer be able to work; you may have suffered damage to your possessions and you may have costs related to medical bills and clinical care.

You must make sure you declare a dog bite or attack to the police, and you must keep all evidence of what has happened, preferably with photos too. When you speak to one of our personal injury solicitors** here in Wakefield, they may well ask for your documentation in order to establish whether or not you have a strong case against the dog owner.

On the other side of the coin, if you have received a summons to appear at a Magistrate’s Court in relation to an offence under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, or the Dogs Act 1871, then your dog may have been accused of having attacked someone. If you contact our Wakefield lawyers in the first instance they will explain what your options are, and whether or not you will be asked to pay compensation to the victim of injury or damage caused by your animal. You may need to gather evidence to prove that you have always cared well for your dog and that it had never before behaved violently.
