Whiplash Injury in Mirfield


Mirfield is a small town in Yorkshire with its own online newspaper which reported that a family pet, a pug had been stolen, with the thieves being caught on a CCTV camera. If one of them had been bitten by the dog, it would have been entirely their fault of course, and they could not have made a claim against the family that owned the dog.

If, on the other hand, a dog had attacked a postman who was trying to deliver letters to the home, it would have been a different story, if he or she had done nothing to provoke the dog. The poor postman might have been badly bitten, and as the dog launched an attack, the postmen might have fallen badly and so suffered a whiplash injury in Mirfield. You can have a whiplash injury in Mirfield in accidents other than road traffic ones. If you are hit on the head in any way, it is possible to sustain a whiplash injury in Mirfield or elsewhere.

Attacked by a dog?

If you have been attacked by a dog, you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation claim for your injuries. You may be able to claim compensation from the person who owns the dog, or from the local authority if you are attacked by a stray, as the local authority should keep the streets safe and round up stray dogs.

If you suffer from a minor dog bite, you should thoroughly clean the wound by washing it under warm running water, until you are sure that it has been cleaned. You need to clean it thoroughly as animal saliva is full of bacteria and so an infection may result from a bite. You should make sure that any hair is also removed from the wound. If the area where you were bitten is not bleeding squeeze it gently to promote a flow of blood. This will help to prevent bacteria being able to get into the wound.

If you have a more serious injury and suffer some painful after effects from a minor bite then you should seek medical attention immediately. If you intend claiming for your injury you will need to inform the police, who will write a report and investigate the incident, and seek immediate medical attention. You will need a police report and a medical report to make a claim. You could also take photographs of your injury which can be used as supporting evidence.
