  • What classes as a dog bite claim?

    If you have been injured in a dog attack, in a situation that involved some recognisable negligence or criminal intent from an owner, you as victim could be entitled to significant dog bite injury compensation. Depending on the nature of your dog bite injury, our team of personal injury solicitors may also be able to help you to access expert medical care as part of your claim. For further information on the different types of rehabilitation that may be available as part of a dog bite compensation claim, please contact us.

  • Which occupations are most at risk?

    You may be at increased risk, on average, of sustaining a dog bite injury if your type of employment requires you to spend more time in public places or in residential areas. For example, service providers such as utility workers and health care professionals may require access to private property on occasion, while delivery workers may do so on a daily if not hourly basis. In terms of a dog bite injury in the UK, the occupations most at risk include:

    • Postal staff
    • Medical staff, care staff and social workers
    • Utility workers (gas, electric, water)
    • Delivery workers (including leafleting)
    • Construction workers (e.g. builders, joiners)
  • How much money is my claim worth?

    The specific dog bite compensation you can expect will depend both on the level of injury suffered and the level of negligence and/or intent that can be proven with regards to the dog owner. For now, you can enter your basic claim details into our compensation calculator to gain an estimate of your expected compensation – please remember this should only be taken as an estimate and not relied upon

    Here at Hampson Hughes we endeavour to obtain the best possible outcome for all of our clients. To discuss a potential claim and average compensation levels, you can fill out our email contact form, or phone us on 0800 888 6888, to speak with our expert dog bite solicitors from the personal injury team.

  • What is the dog bite compensation time limit?

    You should contact us as soon as possible if you believe that you may be entitled to make a dog bite compensation claim. Any delay in bringing your claim may be detrimental to your case due to the time limits involved.

    In terms of more specific time limits it is best to get in touch with us to discuss the details of your claim, but in general you can expect a 3 year time limit for personal injury claims, while if you believe the dog attack involved criminal intent, the time limit to make a criminal injury claim is 2 years from the date of the incident. More details on these claims is available here.

  • Gathering evidence to support your claim

    Certain types of evidence may prove useful in building your case for dog bite compensation. If you are unsure about gathering evidence in support of your dog bite claim, contact our personal injury solicitors today, to obtain instant advice and professional support.

    In general terms, useful types of evidence for a dog bite compensation claim may include:

    • Notifying the police of your dog bite
    • Keeping a note of related expenses (e.g. travel, loss of income)
    • Providing a photograph and/or video of your injury prior to treatment

What our customers are saying…

Fantastic service, the attention to all the details was super impressive. They kept me updated throughout the whole process and got my case solved really quickly. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Stephen McNorton

Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!

Pete Smith
