Dog bite Solicitors Slee Blackwell have earned a mention once again with their particular expertise in dog bite compensation claims and their understanding of the Animals Act 1971.

The latest entry reads:

Slee Blackwell has expertise in claims arising from … Animals Act cases, in particular injuries sustained in dog attacks. The ‘very professional’ practice provides ‘excellent’ service in a ‘personal manner’. Practice head James McNally is noted for his ‘in-depth knowledge’ of personal injury law. The practice’s work in cases involving animal attacks included advising a client whose lower lip had been partly bitten off by a dog, another client who suffered a gastrointestinal illness as a result of the medication prescribed to him to treat an infection caused by a dog bite, and another client who had been bitten by a dog when trying to protect her dog.

Says James McNally:

As far as I am aware we are one of the only firms mentioned in the Legal 500 who specialise in dog-bite law. This is a huge achievement and singles us out as one of if not the leading dog-bite and Animals Act solicitors in the UK. The Legal 500 spoke to clients and legal professionals in reaching this opinion. They took into account that we have won hundreds of thousands of pounds for dog bite victims and that we have won cases that other solicitors have rejected and said had no hope. I think that this is a great reflection on what we have achieved and the work we do on behalf of our clients.

Slee Blackwell’s Clinical Negligence, Professional Negligence and Contentious Probate departments are all ranked in the influential publication, marking the firm out as one of the leading legal practices.
