Incidents involving aggressive dogs or other animals are traumatic and can lead to injuries such as permanent scarring, fractures and psychological injuries as well as more serious life changing injuries and sometimes, sadly, fatalities.


If you or a loved one suffers injury as a result of a dog bite or other injury caused by an animal, then it may be possible to bring a claim for compensation against the owner or keeper of the animal. 


The law on this issue is complex and is governed by the Animals Act 1971 and or Negligence.


There are a number of defences to such claims and it is therefore important that you receive the correct Professional advice as soon as possible. At CAPA LAW Solicitors, we have experience of handling claims for all types of injuries caused by animals and can anticipate the possible defences that may be applied in response to your claim.
