There are nearly 10,000 dog attacks a year in the UK and the number of dog bite compensation claims continues to rise.

If you have suffered an injury as a result of a dog attack then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

People making a successful dog bite compensation claim can expect to receive compensation for their injuries as well as recovering their financial losses and out of pocket expenses.

For you to make a claim the attack must have taken place within the last three years, or if you were under 18 anytime before your 21st birthday.

Dog attack law can be complicated, so to make sure your claim is dealt with properly you need solicitors who know exactly what they are doing and who are specialists in animal injury cases.

We are established experts in this specialist field of law and our lawyers will be happy to provide you with a free case assessment.

Because we have an excellent track record of success we are willing to deal with dog bite compensation claims on a No Win, No Fee basis. Call us for further details.
