Our client was a delivery driver who went to deliver a parcel to a residential address. When the householder opened the door he let his dog run out past him.
The dog leapt straight at our client and bit him in the groin, causing a series of puncture wounds to his genitals.
Our client contacted us shortly after the dog attack and we were able to help him with his complaint to the Police about the incident.
We wrote a detailed letter of claim to the householder, who passed the matter to his home insurers.
We asked the insurers to investigate the complaint and they admitted liability for the dog bite.
Fortunately for our client, he had largely recovered from the effects of the dog bite within the first few weeks. We arranged for him to be examined by an independent medical expert who prepared a report.
A copy of the report was sent to the insurers and we negotiated settlement of the claim with the insurers for £2,000, which our client was very happy with and he did not have to go to court at all.
