Claiming after an accident at work in the Derbyshire Dales
Perhaps you were working as a postman when you were attacked by a large dog while making a delivery at a mail recipient’s property. All dog owners have a legal responsibility to make sure that their animals do not pose a risk of doing a visitor an injury in this type of manner. As such, the owner of the canine in question might be liable to pay you compensation. In most cases, where a dog owner is insured, his or her cover provider would foot your pay-out, should you be entitled to one.
