Dog Bite Injury Claim Lawyers
Dog owners are legally obligated to make sure their dogs don’t hurt people. The GOV.UK website states: “It’s against the law to let a dog be dangerously out of control anywhere.”
If someone else’s dog has bitten or attacked you in a public place or on private property, you might be able to claim compensation for your injuries.
The expert accident injury compensation lawyers at Sheldon Davison can help you to claim the financial recompense that you deserve.
Dangerous dogs and the law
The law is very strict with regards to dog ownership, as dogs can cause serious harm to people and other animals if not properly trained or controlled.
An owner who allows their dog to become out of control in public can be fined up to £20,000 and could also be imprisoned for up to six months. If a dog wounds or kills a person or another animal, its owner can be fined a higher figure and can be imprisoned for up to 14 years.
Despite this, dog attacks result in over 6,000 hospital admissions every year in the UK.
