    The effects of animal attack injuries


    The effects of animal attack injuries can be devastating. If you have been the innocent victim of an animal attack, you deserve justice. But what form can justice take?

    Justice following your animal attack injury

    If you have sustained an injury in an animal attack where someone else was to blame, you may think that justice is not achievable. Perhaps you were attacked by a dog in a public place. Or perhaps your own dog was attacked by another animal and you were injured while intervening. You are likely to be feeling shocked, angry, upset and traumatised. How can you achieve justice following such an incident?

    UK law says that if you are injured through another person’s actions, negligence or carelessness, that person is obliged to recompense you. In other words, the law will try to put you back in the position you would have been in if the incident had not occurred. But there is the problem – the law cannot undo the injury and trauma you have suffered. The damage is done.

    The legal process can’t take back the hurt you have suffered, so it uses financial compensation to achieve justice. A successful compensation claim can indeed help you to feel that justice has been achieved, enabling you to recover emotionally as well as physically.

    Quantifying the effects of animal attack injuries

    A compensation claim is designed to recompense you for your injury and put you back in the same position you would have been in, wherever possible. For this reason, compensation is made up of two parts.

    The first part of your compensation award is to offer you a financial settlement for your injury, pain and trauma. This can be difficult to quantify, but with more than 15 years of experience, we are in the best position to help you with this.

    The second part of your compensation award reimburses you for any costs you have incurred as a result of the incident. For example, you may have travelled to medical appointments or paid for prescriptions. You may have lost wages or overtime opportunities. You may have hired extra childcare or help around the home. All of this can be claimed as part of your compensation.
