Pet Bites

Owning pets is common practice and many people choose to keep dogs and cats. Dogs are considered to be friendly animals and that’s why dogs are also the most common choice when one thinks about owning a pet. However, the breed of the dog can have a great effect on its demeanour and there are a few ferocious breeds of dog that account for a great percentage of cases of dog attacks and injuries.

Getting injured from a pet can extend from minor scratches to severe physical injuries. If you have been attacked by any pet animal you are liable to get compensation from the owner of that pet. The compensation costs for the injury suffered by you should include not only the medical bills for the treatment of the injury but also other costs like the physiological effects that the injury can lead to if the injury has long-term affectation.

Due to such traumatic experience many victims might even inculcate an innate fear of confronting dogs in the streets or getting friendly with any relatives pet. The costs of such consequences are also often included in the compensation claim.

If you or any of your relative has been bitten by a pet you should immediately apply for compensation. However, the compensation procedure is not as easy as it might appear and you might need to have a meticulous approach to succeed through the process of claiming compensation for pet bites.

Consulting a compensation solicitor is a great idea that you can rely upon during the compensation proceedings.  Through their expertise in this field, they would not only settle the best compensation claims deal for you but also guide you through each step of the procedure. Even in case of ‘out of court’ settlement they can play a significant role and get suitable results through their legal handling of the process.

The solicitors have contact with recognized medical practitioners who will get your body checked-up to evaluate the exact cost of the medical treatment that you require.  Through this way they ensure that you get adequate compensation cost and do not spend your own money for further treatments later on. If you are insured by any company you are also liable to get insurance money from the insurance company. For successfully getting that too, the solicitor has a vital role to play.

All these clearly bring out the importance of claiming compensation for pet bites. The importance of the function served by the solicitor cannot be overlooked and if you have suffered from any form of pet bite consult a compensation solicitor as soon as possible.

Food Poisoning
Mr W was involved in a food poisoning incident at a Dinner Dance. Cooks obtained an admission of liability swiftly from the hosts. Mr W’s symptoms did not settle, he required surgery and Cooks referred him to a Gastrointestinal Consultant to provide a final diagnosis. On receipt of this Mr W agreed an out of Court settlement of £20,000.00
"At first the Doctors didn’t know what was wrong with me, but Cooks never gave up and in the end I received a correct diagnosis, the appropriate treatment and a cheque for far more than I had expected."
