In addition to the actual injury compensation itself, you may also be entitled to animal attack compensation if the owner is negligent towards people’s safety.
Animal Accident Claims: Am I Entitled to Compensation?
If you’ve been injured by another person’s property, whether it’s a pet or working animal, you are more than likely entitled to compensation. This isn’t just limited to actual physical contact with the creature either. If an animal leads you to being involved in a car accident, for example, you can claim against the owner for allowing it to put you in that position.
Some of the most common claims for animal accident injuries include:
- Horse Riding – If you’ve fallen off a horse or been kicked while riding, then you may be entitled to compensation. The stable should not offer horses which are likely to turn violent for horse riding purposes. If you’ve fallen from the horse because of ineffective equipment or improper training, you may be able to make a claim that the stable was negligent towards your safety.
- Injuries in a Zoo or Wildlife Park – If you’ve followed all the rules in place at the zoo or wildlife park and you’ve still suffered injury, then you may be able to make a claim against the business. Common injuries can include being attacked in your vehicle during a tour or escaped animals attacking you whilst walking around the zoo.
- Car Accidents due to Animal Activity – If a dog escapes its owner by the road and causes a traffic collision, then you may be able to make animal accident claims against the owner as they’ve failed to look after it effectively.
- Animal Accident Claims for Dog Bites – One of the most common claims in the UK is being bitten by a dog. Most of these injuries are minor, but in same cases they can lead to more serious attacks or even infections. Attacks from Rottweilers and other naturally aggressive dogs are the most widely-reported, but any dog can turn violent. If you’ve been bitten or otherwise injured by a dog, you may be able to seek compensation.
If you’ve suffered through any of these events, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation against the person or business responsible for the animal. In the event of serious injuries, animal accident claims can be essential throughout the recovery period, especially if you’re left temporarily unable to work.
How Much Could I Receive for Animal Attacks and Dog Bites?
The amount that you receive in your compensation is based on the severity of the attack and the injuries that you have sustained. The most serious and life altering the injury, the more you are likely to receive as a result. In many cases, you can often be left shaken up or suffering from psychological damage. This will also be taken into consideration when deciding the amount of compensation that you’ll receive.
