Are you contacting Dumfries and Galloway accident claim solicitors after being hurt by an animal?
As the United Kingdom is typically known as a nation of animal lovers, many of us own pets or care for animals in our spare time. In fact, people who are not able to own an animal on a full time basis often commit to volunteering at local animal shelters and re-homing centres.
Whilst many people do want to own an animal, their situation doesn’t always allow for it. If, for example, you work long hours, it may not be appropriate to own a dog or a puppy as they would be left on their own for long periods of time. When taking on the responsibility of an animal, it’s important to ensure that you can care for the animal appropriately and that you can be responsible for it.
Indeed, if anything does go wrong and the animal causes someone to suffer an injury, the owners can be held responsible. Similarly, if they were to neglect the animal or mistreat it in any way, there could be serious consequences and the owners may even face criminal charges.
If you have been harmed by an animal, you may want to make a compensation claim with Dumfries and Galloway accident claim solicitors against the owners. If they are shown to be responsible for the incident, Dumfries and Galloway accident claim solicitors could help you to successfully obtain compensation from them. If someone owned horses but they had not secured them in a paddock, stables or field, they could easily get out and cause an injury. If they are located close to a road they could even wander on to the carriageway and cause a serious road traffic accident. In such incidents, the animals can often be hurt or killed as well so it is important that the owners are held to account.
