Dog Attack Compensation

You only have to watch the news to notice that dog-bite incidents have become a regular occurrence over the last few years. These are extreme cases but there are countless scenarios of intimidation and minor biting from dogs that go unnoticed and indeed, unpunished. Mercury Legal are here to help you.

The Dangerous Dogs Act of 1991 was implemented in order to prevent these cases from occurring and requires owners of certain breeds to register their pets and follow strict guidelines in keeping them. Failure to do so can result in prosecution.

If you have been subject to intimidation or assault from a dog you may be entitled to make a claim due to the obvious physical and emotional injuries that you may have endured. The laws surrounding dog attacks are complicated. With this in mind, it is of paramount importance that you get specialist legal advice to ensure you stand the best chance of success.

Injuries resulting from a dog bite are most notably; skin lacerations, fractured bones, scarring, nerve damage and infection. Psychologically, conditions such as phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder and depression can develop and inhibit you in your daily routines.

If you think there is any chance you may have a valid claim then please don't hesitate to contact us. Our team are friendly and approachable – we will give you impartial advice regardless of the circumstances surrounding your incident.

Mercury Legal will pursue your claim at no upfront cost to you and you will not have to pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful through no fault of your own. We operate with the highest levels of customer care and we will represent your case professionally, managing all of the paperwork along the way.
