Lawyer in Buntingford


We all look forward to the summer months when we can shake off the cobwebs from a freezing winter and stop to smell the roses. For some reason, it feels safe strolling through the park on a beautiful hot day or walking to the shops in our flip flops without a care in the world, as we greet passersby with a friendly smile and pass dog walkers in our midst.

However, more people are attacked by dogs during the summer months than at any other time of the year. Whether those hounds are bounding through a field chasing after a ball, walking beside their owner on a lead or just lying out in the sun, that playful exterior could mask an aggressive interior which is sweltering under a fur coat in soaring temperature.

When a bite is worse than the bark

If you witness a loved one being attacked by a dog, or you are the one experiencing such canine rage, it is human nature to want to escape from an animal’s grip and never look back. However, the most successful personal injury claims are the ones which come equipped with a mountain of evidence.

The first plan of action is to seek immediate medical attention after a dog attack, even if the wounds appear minor. It is important to be properly examined by a doctor to ensure that there is minimal risk of developing a serious infection.

Sinking teeth into those tasks which are too big for you to chew

Most people have a camera on their mobile phone. This means that photographic evidence of injuries can be recorded almost immediately. If possible, try to take pictures of the dog. When you have come to terms with the incident, try to jot down as many details as possible whilst they are still fresh in the mind. You will need to provide a date, time and place of where the attack occurred. If witnesses were present, be sure to include their contact details along with the name and address of the dog owner. It is also important to keep any receipts or invoices for expenses incurred as a result of the attack.
