The Accident

A tour bus driver contacted our team at Actons Injury Solicitors after he was attacked by a guard dog as he returned his bus to the Depot late one evening.

His employer blamed the dog handler for allowing the dog to roam loose in the grounds. The dog handler worked for an external security company.

The dog handler claimed he had been told the premises were empty and alleged the bus driver had provoked the attack by panicking and shouting.

 

The Dog Bite Injuries

The bus driver was, in our view, an innocent victim. It was a savage dog attack. He had multiple wounds. He was taken to hospital by ambulance and admitted for three days, requiring surgery. He was left with scarring and suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

 

How We Helped Claim Compensation

The bus driver contacted us to discuss how he could go about claiming compensation for his injuries following the guard dog attack.

We took on his case and issued court proceedings against both his employer and the security company.

We were able to secure compensation of £12,500, including the cost of psychological treatment, with responsibility split 70/30% between both companies, with the security company taking the higher proportion of the blame.
