The facts of the case study

Our client, Mr H, was walking his dog by a local farm when two collies came rushing out of the farm gate barking loudly and defending what they obviously saw as their territory. One of the dogs bit his hand, resulting in him having to attend hospital and have surgery. He had been due to go on holiday the following day and the holiday had to be cancelled.

Mr H approached us to deal with his compensation claim and we agreed to work on a No Win, No Fee basis.

An early admission of legal liability was made by the owners of the farm dogs. We then arranged for Mr H to be seen by a local plastic surgeon. The injury he had suffered was complicated and the repair took time to heal, so we had to liaise closely with those treating him as well as the medical expert to make sure that when we came to settle the claim Mr H was fully recovered and would get the compensation he deserved.

An out of court settlement was then reached which compensated Mr H for his injuries. We also made sure he got the cost of his cancelled holiday back.
