If you own a dog, or any other animal that might be capable of doing another person an injury in an accident that was not their fault, it will be your responsibility to make sure that you’ve taken the steps required to make sure this does not happen. If you fail to fulfill this responsibility, you might well find yourself in a position where you could be facing a personal injury claim. If the case was found against you, there will be a chance that you might have to stump up a substantial Three Rivers accident at work compensation pay-out.
Animal injuries and Three Rivers accident at work compensation
Although it will not absolve your responsibility to make sure that your animal does not pose a risk of doing anybody an injury in an accident that was not your fault, pet insurance could help you meet the cost of any accident at work compensation you were told to pay. It will be worth noting however that any failure on your part not to take steps to protect others from your beast might well trigger an exclusion on your policy that might void any such payment.
If you do not have this type of cover in place, you might be forced to cover any Three Rivers accident at work compensation awarded against you out of your own pocket. Depending on the damage your animal actually did, this could amount to many thousands of pounds. There will also be a possibility that your animal might have to be destroyed if it is considered especially dangerous.
With the above in mind, make sure that you dog is well trained and is furnished with any equipment required to keep it from doing anybody an injury in an accident that was not their fault. Doing so could save you from having to shell out on Three Rivers accident at work compensation. Make sure your animal cannot escape your property when at home, and fit it with a muzzle when out and about if you feel it might pose a threat to anybody or anything, including other dogs.
