We acted for a lady who was attacked and bitten by a dog.
She went out for a walk along a canal and was having a conversation with a dog walker, when their dog pounced and bit her on the leg.
Our client sustained a deep cut on her thigh for which she required medical attention.
She suffered a significant infection as a result of the bite and also suffered nerve damage.
How we helped claim compensation
At first, the owner’s insurers refused to take responsibility for the incident.
Despite this, we were confident about continuing with our client’s claim and gathered evidence to go ahead with court proceedings.
The insurers eventually offered £4,500 in full and final settlement of the claim
However, our client followed our advice and rejected the offer as we considered her injuries to be worth more.
We entered into negotiations and received a new settlement figure of £6,250, which she was very happy with.
