What kind of injuries can Oxfordshire no win no fee lawyers help me claim damages for?
Dogs are known to be loyal and faithful companions and man’s best friend but sometimes their behaviour can result in Oxfordshire no win no fee lawyers claiming compensation against their owners. Dog owners have a responsibility to ensure that dogs are well nourished, properly exercised and under control when in outdoor public spaces. Failing to care for their dog adequately, or provide for its needs, can lead to aggression problems and hyperactivity, which can make interactions with adults, children, vehicles and other animals problematic. Some dog-related incidents which can lead to injuries include:
- Traffic accidents – a dog off the lead can cause accidents by running into the road or chasing cars or bikes. When near roads, dogs should only be let off the lead in enclosed spaces and they should be kept under close supervision and control. Whiplash injuries can occur if the driver has to perform an emergency stop to avoid hitting the animal. More serious injuries can happen if the driver swerves into oncoming traffic or hits stationary objects such as houses, trees or walls.
- Dog bites – poorly trained or supervised dogs may attack or bite adults and children. Bites from larger dog breeds are more likely to result in severe damage to the skin causing lacerations and puncture wounds. Dog bites are often treated with stitches and antibiotics and complications can include infection and scarring. Emotional trauma leading to a fear of animals and avoidance of outdoor spaces may require specialist counselling or behaviour therapy.
