Have you been hurt by an animal or pet?
Although a small bite or nip from an animal is unlikely to cause a serious injury, animals can also be responsible for catastrophic injuries. Whilst most pets are trained to be around people without any problems, if they are scared or cornered, an animal can feel threatened and may react badly.
As pet owners are responsible for their animal’s actions, they be held liable if their pet hurts someone. Owners can even find themselves in court facing criminal charges if their pets hurt or bite someone.
If you’ve been hurt because of someone else’s pet, you could potentially make a claim for compensation. Although these types of claims aren’t always the most straightforward, there is a good chance that a personal injury lawyer in Barney will be able to help you make a claim for this type of injury.
