Despite the myth that only ‘dangerous breeds’ of dogs attack, any breed of dog can attack or bite a person – the size & age of the dog are also irrelevant.
In order to make a successful dog bite compensation claim, it must be shown that the owner or handler of the animal have been aware that the dog had a history of aggressive behavior and that care should be taken to protect the public from it. If you have been attacked by a dog, the attack must have caused a personal injury in order to begin a personal injury compensation claim. You cannot claim compensation for a ‘near miss’ or what could have happened.
It is very important that if you are bitten by a dog, you seek medical attention immediately. Details of the dog owner and any witnesses’ to the attack are also very important. If you do not know who the dog owner is, or if the dog bite is particularly serious, you should notify the police as soon as possible.
