We are a nation of animal lovers and for many of us, our main love is for dog. At some point in our lives many of us can say we have owned or do own a dog as a pet. Dogs are referred to with that well known saying that a dog is Man’s best friend. This is due to the fact that dogs are loyal and loving companions.
A dog could be a family pet and complain for the children to love to play with. For people who live alone a dog is a companion and friend. Dogs are vital as part of the care for disabled people and as guide dogs for the blind and hearing dogs for the death. These dogs play a part of people being able to live a normal independent life.
Sadly dogs are also a big responsibility, they come with a big commitment. They are a financial burden with food, vet bills and vital insurance in cases they do something that leads to you the owner being sued. Some of the things that can cause people to need to use insurance are car accident claims in Middlesbrough for dog related accidents such as a dog running out into the road causing a collision.
In accidents where a dog has escaped or slipped its leads, the dog could run into the road causing cars to swerve and hit something or another vehicle. Unfortunately for you, if your dog causes an accident then it is your fault you as the dog owner will be liable for any costs incurred, such as damages to the vehicles involved, any injuries incurred and all the extra expenses an injury can cause its victims, like lost earnings and medical costs which people will reclaim through car accident claims in Middlesbrough.
However, perhaps you are not the dog owner in this case; perhaps you are the victim of a car accident that was not your fault but a dog’s fault and you should be the one making a personal injury claim for your injuries, losses and suffering due to someone else negligence. If so then you do not need to suffer in silence, you are more than likely entitled to claim compensation from the owner of the dog.
