Legal Resources - Animal attack injury claim

If you have been injured by an animal it is possible that the owner or keeper of the animal may be held legally responsible for injuries in which case you may have valid claim for damages or compensation.

Injuries may be caused by dometic pets, horses, cattle etc but of course the most likely source of animal attack would be a dog bite.

Compensation following a dog attack is not automatic and in fact frequently not possible. Generally speaking the owner will not be held liable unless the dog has previously displayed aggression or a tendency to attack. If it has the case for compensation will be much stronger.

In certain cases the above general rule is modified by the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991. This increases the liability of the owner/keeper if a dog is dangerously out of control in a public place and this would strengthen the case for compensation.

The act also stipulates stict rules for control and regulation of certain breeds of dog which are regarded as dangerous. Injury resulting from attack by one of these breeds may mean that a claim for compensation could be successful even where the dog had not shown previous tendencies to aggressive behaviour.
