Seeking Compensation for Dog Bite and Dog Injury Claims in the UK

Introduction

The COVID-19 pandemic led to an unexpected surge in pet ownership, including dogs. With more dogs in households across the UK, dog-related injuries have seen a significant increase. In this blog, we’ll discuss how you can claim compensation if you’ve been bitten by a dog or suffered an injury when a dog has run or jumped into you. We will also introduce you to ourselves,  Stonehewer Moss Solicitors, a trusted firm in Northwich, Winsford, and the Cheshire area, who can help you obtain the compensation you deserve for your dog-related injuries.

Rising Dog Bite and Dog Injury Claims

The pandemic led to a surge in dog ownership, but along with the increase in furry companions, there has been a noticeable rise in dog bite and dog injury claims. As more people welcome dogs into their homes, the number of incidents involving dogs injuring people has also gone up. If you’ve suffered an injury due to a dog’s actions, it’s important to know that you have legal rights, and you may be entitled to compensation.

Stonehewer Moss Solicitors – Your Legal Partner

Stonehewer Moss Solicitors, a reputable firm based in Northwich, Winsford, and serving the wider Cheshire area, can help you in your pursuit of compensation for dog bite and dog injury claims. They are accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and have extensive experience in handling cases related to dog-related injuries. Their expert team specialises in these types of claims and can guide you through the process.

“No Win, No Fee” Service

One of the key advantages of choosing Stonehewer Moss Solicitors is their “no win, no fee” service. This means that you can pursue your claim without any financial risk. You won’t have to pay legal fees unless your case is successful. This approach ensures that everyone has access to legal representation, regardless of their financial situation.

Dogs are normally covered by a policy of insurance which provides cover in the event of a dog bit or dog injury claim. This means that most claims are made against the insurance company rather than the owner and are very often settled without the need for Court proceedings.

What Can You Claim?

If you’ve been bitten by a dog or suffered an injury due to a dog’s actions, you may be eligible to claim compensation for various aspects of your experience. Here’s what you can typically claim:

  1. Injury Compensation: You can claim compensation for the physical injuries you’ve sustained as well as any psychological injuries resulting from the incident.
  2. Financial Loss or Expenses: You can claim for various financial losses or expenses reasonably incurred due to the dog bite or injury, including:
    • Lost earnings
    • Costs for care and assistance provided by friends and family
    • Medication and prescription charges
    • Travel expenses
    • Damaged clothing and property
    • Medical treatment costs

Injured Pets and Vet Bills

If your own dog or pet has been injured at the same time as you were bitten, you can recover their vet’s bills as part of your personal injury claim. Stonehewer Moss Solicitors can help you navigate the complexities of these cases, ensuring that both your injuries and your pet’s injuries are taken into account during the claim process.

Conclusion

Dog bite and dog injury claims are on the rise in the UK due to the increased number of dogs brought into homes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
