How To Make An Animal Attack Compensation Claim

If you have been bitten or injured by an uncontrolled animal and if the incident happened within the last three years, you may be able to make an animal attack compensation claim.  However, it is also essential that the attack was not your fault.  For example, it must be established that you did nothing to provoke the animal.  In the case of a dog attack, it would help if it can be proven that the dog has a history of aggressive behaviour or the dog is of a dangerous breed.

The owners and keepers of animal have a duty to ensure that their animals do not cause injury to others.  If they are negligent and if a person suffers injuries in an animal attack, the owner or keeper will be liable to pay financial compensation to the injured person.

Some of the animals which are known to cause injury and harm to humans include dogs, cows, bulls, horses and ferrets.

If you have been injured in an animal attack and if you are looking to make a claim, it is essential that you take the steps needed to prove your case.

You must obtain contact details of people who witnessed the incident.  This can help you prove that you were the innocent victim of an animal attack.

You must document any injuries sustained.  Visiting a hospital or a G.P is essential because this will help you obtain medical evidence of injuries sustained.  Taking photographs of injuries sustained is also going to be helpful.

Next, you must establish the contact details of the owner of the animal. Try to find out if the animal has a history of aggressive behaviour or whether the animal has attacked someone else in the past.

You must also report the incident so measures can be taken to prevent further attacks.

Lastly, you must contact an experienced personal injury solicitor and discuss your case.
