Everyone is different and everyone gets affected in different ways by an accident and the injuries they suffer. Slee Blackwell understands this and so ensure that every dog bite claim is valued specifically for the individual client.

As you only get one chance to make a claim it's important to ensure that you are properly compensated for your injuries and any losses you've suffered. That's why it pays to instruct specialist solicitors like Slee Blackwell who'll get you the compensation you deserve. Contact us now for advice on recovering compensation for your injuries.

At the appropriate stage of your claim Slee Blackwell will organise an appointment for you to be medically examined by an expert. We are of the view that our client's should be seen by the very best and so we have a list of preferred Consultants who specialise in areas such as plastic surgery or psychological injures. These experts give us their opinion on the injuries that have been caused, the effect the injury has had and what effect (if any) that injury will have in the future. From this report we consider previous Court decisions and if necessary a barrister's opinion to allow us to value the claim.

Dog bite compensation is particularly difficult to value because, as well as physical injury, pyschological injury and financial loss, it often involves scarring. The amount of compensation paid for a scar depends very much on the individual. Factors such as age and sex and the location of the scar all have to be taken into account. To give you a better idea of what your claim may be worth, below are claims completed by our solicitors for a range of dog bite injuries:

For guidance the Judicial Studies Board have produced tables of the range of likely awards that would be made in a personal injury claim:

A large proportion of awards for a number of awards for a number of noticeable laceration scars, or a single disfiguring scar, of leg(s) or arm(s) or hand(s) or back or chest (male) fall in the bracket of £6,870 to £19,930...
 
A single noticeable scar, or several superficial scars, of leg(s), or arm(s) or hand(s), with some minor cosmetic deficit justifies £2,080 to £6,870.

The amount of compensation for facial scarring can vary hugely. A woman can sometimes expect to receive more compensation than a man. Compensation may be different for child dog bite claims
