Which Dog Breeds are Most Likely to Bite?

While any dog breed can bite and injure you, there are some breeds which are more likely to cause injury than others. Any dog, whether its scared, excited or has been treated negligently in the past, can bite. However, the breeds of dogs most commonly associated with biting humans include rottweilers, certain terriers and pit bulls. If you’ve been bitten by any of these dog breeds, or by a dog of any breed, you should be entitled to claim for compensation.

Can I Claim if I Was Bitten by a Neighbour’s Dog?

If you were bitten by a neighbour’s dog, you should still be entitled to claim compensation. Whether the dog escaped its home, or you were bitten while out on a walk, we are here for you. Our experienced team can help you to understand if you’re able to claim for compensation. There are some circumstances, such as if you were tormenting the dog, when you may not be able to claim compensation. For more specific information on your particular dog bite case, call Tylers Solicitors today.

Am I Entitled to Claim if I Was Bitten by a Dog While Trespassing?

If you were trespassing and were bitten by a guard dog, it is unlikely that you’ll be able to claim compensation. This depends on a wide range of circumstances, however. For example, if the land wasn’t marked as private, or there were no ‘beware of dog’ signs in place, you might be entitled to claim compensation. Similarly, if you were bitten by a dog while working as a postal worker, for the local council or you had a legitimate reason for being on the property, you may be able to claim compensation. Typically, the onus is on the owner to prevent the dog from biting people, unless you had no business being on their property.
