Dog bites are injuries that can be very distressing. Not only can it happen at home, out in public, or while working, but to both children and adults. These bites can be more dangerous than the initial injury might suggest, with the risk of infections and diseases being contracted after the event. If this has happened to you in an incident that wasn’t your fault, then you can make a no win no fee* compensation in Connah’s Quay claim and let our solicitors see what they can do to help at this trying time.
After a dog bite
After a dog bite, it is imperative that you report it to the police or relevant authority, as not only have you been attacked, but this may be something that has happened before, and could happen again. It is also important to find out who the dog belongs to, and what insurance its owner might have, as well as a history of its behaviour.
You should also seek medical attention as soon as possible as even the most minor bites can cause serious infections. Simple first aid can be performed until then, such as washing the wound to remove anything dangerous from the area. Even if the injury is not too serious, you still have the right to make a no win no fee* compensation in Connah’s Quay claim and our in house solicitors will work to get you the compensation you deserve.
Bitten at work
It may not seem like something that could easily happen while working, as dogs are not usually found in most workplaces, but some people in certain professions could encounter them during their day. These could be those who work as letter carriers, carers, and other people who may be called to people’s homes, such as electricians, construction workers, and meter readers. If these homes have aggressive canines, or homes nearby have, then you could be in danger of being attacked.
Though it is usually the responsibility of your employer to ensure your safety at work, when it comes to visiting people’s homes, whether they or people nearby have dogs, it is their responsibility to ensure that their pets are not a danger to anyone else. If they can be aggressive towards strangers, then ensure they are not in the position to get near them. If this is not the case, you may be able to make a no win no fee* compensation in Connah’s Quay claim.
