You could make a dog walker accident claim today if you have been injured while dog walking. Dog walkers are exposed to numerous hazards and risks during their working day. Cars, pedestrians, the environment, and dogs can all cause serious accidents and injuries. While dog walkers take health and safety very seriously, accidents can happen due to the unpredictable nature of the job, every day is different. If you have been injured at work, then Accident Advice Helpline could help you if a third party was to blame.
Controlling many dogs at one time is a skill that dog walkers perfect as they become more experienced. Unfortunately, this can attract the attention of other dogs in the area. Dogs can sometimes attack other dogs and you may have to intervene. If you were injured while doing this, then you may be eligible for a no win, no fee* claim. Another dog owner could be liable if they were in charge of a dangerous dog, or were walking a breed that had been outlawed in the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991. If you were bitten or sustained cuts, bruises, or other wounds, then you have a right to claim for compensation. To find out whether you are eligible, call our free, 24-hour helpline.
How can Accident Advice Helpline help?
Accident Advice Helpline can assist you if you have been bitten by a dog. Our advisors will speak to you regarding how and why the accident happened before matching you with an expert solicitor. We have over fourteen years of experience in handling claims, so you can trust us to make the right decisions for you. If you have recently been injured, you should note down all the details and any contact details of witnesses that saw the accident. Evidence like this will help our solicitors to prove your claim.
Dogs are not the only danger for dog walkers, they are also at risk of being run over as they have to cross roads on a regular basis. If you were on a zebra crossing, or on a pavement, and were struck by a vehicle, then you may have grounds to make a claim. Common road related injuries can range from broken bones and punctured lungs to other more permanent injuries, such as brain damage and even fatalities. We can make a claim against the driver if they were at fault.
Why should I file a claim?
We recommend that you make a claim if you believe that it will help you to recover, you should not worry about any other factors. If the accident was not your fault, and a successful claim will allow you to pay for medical bills or cover income you may have lost, then it is your right to seek a monetary sum. Those at fault must be brought to justice in some way. You do not even have to pay anything up front, so there are no risks involved. To register your interest, call us today. It could be the start of a brighter future for you and your family.
