Dog Bites

There have been reported many cases of dog bites which have led to serious injuries. Dog bites can have a serious effect on a person, but in some cases it may also turn fatal and cause death. If any of your family members or any known person has suffered such kind of an attack, he is liable for compensation from the dog owner. It is a legal right of the victim to file a case and be heard.

The case may differ if the victim was intentionally trying to mock the dog and due to this the dog bit him. You may not be liable for any compensation if the mistake was yours. If due to a dog, you face serious injuries like falling off a bike, the owner is bound to compensate you for the injuries. The best thing to do in such cases is to consult a solicitor who would help you claim the right amount and help you win the claim. It is possible that he dog injury has a long term effect on the victim’s body or leave some ugly marks like scars on a prominent place like face. The person may even need a surgery to make it right. In such a case, it may not be possible for you to ask for the compensation on your own because the cost may de difficult to calculate; seek the advice of a professional lawyer.

In some of the incidents of dog bites it has been seen that the victims have damaged their nerves, got ugly marks and infused infection in their bodies. The reason behind such incidents is that they may not be very friendly with the strangers and if they see any one in their property or home which is not familiar, they may run to bite him. Whatever may be the case, if the victim doesn’t have any fault, the owner of the dog will have to pay to the victim, the damages that have been caused. Like all other cases, here too one would have to prove that the fault was of the owner and his dog and not of the victim. This can be easily proven when a person has his medical reports and witnesses in place. The pictures of the injuries can also help a great deal. Do not suffer due to someone else’s negligence, file a case and win compensation.
