Never work with children, or animals
We’ve all heard the sage words of advice but occasionally it isn’t possible to avoid contact with children or animals. Especially if you have children, or animals. While these tiny humans and the cute and fluffy ones can bring intense joy to a life, they can also bring disruption and disturbing smells. However, for the most part you don’t feel that they cause any real problems.
However, if you have been injured as a result of the actions of an animal (probably more likely than with a child) you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. Why not contact us today and ask us about our Dorset ‘no win, no fee’ service?
No matter how well trained you believe an animal to be there is always a part of it that will remain unpredictable. As a result there is always a danger that you, or someone else, could be injured as a result of an animal’s actions.
If you have been injured as a result of another person’s pet or livestock then Accident Advice Helpline can help you make a Dorset no win no fee claim. This is because we would be able to demonstrate where liability lies with such an accident and claim against the person who is deemed to be liable.
The typical type of cases we help people make Dorset ‘no win, no fee’ claims that involve dogs. Every year hundreds of people are bitten or attacked by dogs, and for the most part such incidents can be easily avoided. Postal workers delivering parcels, or tradesmen who have legitimate reason to be on the property are frequently attacked by dogs that are not suitably secured or muzzled.
We recently helped a plumber make a Dorset ‘no win, no fee’ claim after he was attacked by a customer’s dog. He told us “the owners knew I was coming to the property, they gave me a key! But they failed to lock their dog up and, as he didn’t recognise me, he attacked me. I had to take three months off work while my arm healed!”
In such a situation, it would have been easy for the owners to either lock the dog away, muzzle it or arrange for someone else to care for it during the day. Alternatively, the owners should have been present. It was clear that the owners put their plumber in harm’s way, and therefore they were liable for the Dorset ‘no win, no fee’ claim.
