You can claim compensation for the injury suffered as well as compensation for the effect the injury had had upon you. Most dog bite claims involve scarring, but a lot of people suffer psychological injuries. Our team are experienced in animal injury claims and will ensure that you are compensated for any additional problems you suffer.

You can also claim any financial loss or expense which has been reasonably incurred as a result of the dog bite or animal injury, including:

  • Lost earnings.
  • Care and assistance provided by friends and family
  • Cost of medication and prescription charges
  • Travelling expenses
  • Damaged clothing and property
  • Medical treatment costs

If your own dog or a pet has been injured at the same time as you were bitten then their vets bills can be recovered as part of your own personal injury claim. If you haven't suffered injury but your pet has the way claims are dealt with is a little different and you can read more about that in oiur section on Injured Pets and Vet Bills.
