Compensation for Dog Bites

Often dog attacks are completely unprovoked, meaning that the general public can be at risk at any given time. Babies and small children are particularly vulnerable, as dogs tend to attack the face and head. Being a victim of a dog bite can be extremely traumatic and can cause both physical and psychological injury.

You may be able to receive compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering caused by the injury
  • Loss of earnings if you have been unable to work
  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Psychological treatment as a result of the attack

Dog owners usually have either home insurance or dedicated pet insurance. Any compensation awarded in your claim would be paid by the insurance company. Depending on the nature of your case, you may be awarded compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

An increase in dog attacks has led to new legislation which requires certain breeds of dogs to be muzzled when in public places. If you are attacked by one of these dogs when they are not wearing a muzzle, your claim could be relatively straightforward.

Farleys have a dedicated team of personal injury solicitors who will do everything in their power to ensure that you are awarded the compensation you deserve. Wherever possible, we will pursue your claim on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, meaning that you will not have to pay a penny towards legal costs.
