The facts of the case study

Our client, Mr G, was delivering leaflets door to door advertising his tree surgery business. He got to one house and pushed the leaflet through the letterbox, but as he did so he was bitten by a dog inside, causing an injury to his finger. After being bitten Mr G noticed that there was a “Beware of the Dog” sign, but it was hidden when the gate was opened

The injury to Mr G’s hand was not only very painful, but it meant that he was unable to work for two weeks, leaving him significantly out of pocket. He therefore contacted our helpline for a free case assessment. We listened to his explanation of what had happened and agreed to take his case on, working on a no win, no fee basis.

By the time we were appointed to deal with the claim the house had been sold and the new owners didn’t have a forwarding address. However we made enquiries and our detective work paid off when we found an email address which eventually led to us discovering the new whereabouts of the dog’s owners.

Once we made contact with them they quickly admitted they were at fault and a compensation package was soon negotiated.
