Lawyer for Strabane

0

If you’ve been injured by a dog bite, you may wish to sue the dog owner for damages, and an injury claim lawyer for Strabane residents are the ideal people to help.

Every dog owner has a responsibility to members of the general public to ensure that their dogs are well behaved when they’re out and about. It’s not only an obligation that the dog owner has to the public at large, but also to his/her dog too, because if the dog does attack someone, it might have to be put down.

Number of cases double

According to press reports the number of people who visited hospital in the last 10 years for treatment following a dog bite attack has more than doubled. The latest statistics show the figure has gone above the 6000 mark for the first time. Here are some of the latest statistics:

  • Total number of incidents in the past 10 years – 6097
  • Increase in the total number of incidents in the past 10 years – 94%
  • Number of adults sentenced for dangerous dog crime in 2009 – 855
  • Number of adults sentenced in 2010, 1192 (a 58% increase on the previous year)

This worrying trend has convinced government that it must now take action, and they will be announcing new measures to be put in place shortly in order to provide better protection for the public, to allow authorities to be able to enforce the law, and to force dog owners into taking responsibility for their animals’ actions.
