Making A Claim For An Injury Caused By An Animal
Before you consider making a claim for an injury caused by an animal, there are a few key points you should remember so that the matter can be resolved quickly and successfully. Firstly, make sure you write down the full name and address of the owner, also make note of any insurance that may be in place.
We appreciate that this can be difficult, but it will help us to achieve a successful recovery of the compensation you deserve. If there is no insurance policy in place, it is still possible to recover compensation from the individual. However, this would depend on whether the owner of the animal has sufficient assets and/ or the income, as well as being able to meet any judgement which may be obtained against them. Unfortunately, in some cases this may mean that you are unable to make a successful claim.
There are a number of reasons as to why you need the services of our personal injury lawyers if you have suffered an injury from an animal that is not your fault. Seeking compensation may seem pointless at times, however, if you have suffered loss for any of the following it may be worth seeking compensation.
Having to take time off work
Loss of earnings because of your time off work
Medical treatment and potential costs of future treatment
Damage done to cars, vans and any other property
