Dogs make wonderful pets but it is imperative that they are kept under control and are not allowed to bite members of the public
Our Solicitors are regularly instructed by clients who have been misfortunate enough to have been attacked by dogs. Very often these attacks will occur unexpectedly and it is no coincidence that attacks on delivery men and women are on the rise. Online shopping has become extremely popular and many of our clients who have fallen victim to an attack by a dog are employees of some of the major delivery companies such as;
- Royal Mail
- Parcel Force
We also act for clients who are simply out for a walk, cycle or run and are attacked by a dog.
Attacks can leave serious scars, abrasions or bruising and even sometimes fractures. In nearly all occasions they will have psychiatric consequences on the individual that has suffered the attack.
Boyd Rice Solicitors are experts in recovering compensation, very often through the Courts, for clients who have been attacked by a dog or dogs. We have established relationships with Consultant Plastic Surgeons who will assess the extent of our client’s injuries and report on whether any scarring will be permanent or not. We can arrange an appointment with a Consultant Psychiatrist if required.
Our track record in these cases is unrivalled. We will pursue the dog owner for compensation and will keep you updated along the way.
