Claim Compensation For Your Dog Bite Injuries


The United Kingdom is known for its love for animals. In fact, twenty-six per cent of all pet owners are dog owners. While dogs are known for their loyalty, friendliness and natural charm, they can sometimes attack.

Dogs can be a reason for numerous injuries, including bites, scratches, cuts, bruises and more. The damage that results from the dog may lead to scarring, tissue damage, broken bones, nerve injuries, potential disability, puncture wounds, along with psychological trauma. Taking this into account, most people submit dog bite claims in Scotland.

What are Dog Bite Claims?

Dog owners have a responsibility to manage the behaviour of their dogs. If you have been bitten or attacked by a dog and can prove the owner was responsible by not taking reasonable care, you may be able to make a dog bite claim. Dog bite claims provide you with compensation for your injuries. These injuries can be both physical and psychological. However, in the case of the latter, you may require a formal report created by a mental health professional.
