Injuries caused by Animals

Each year, thousands of people are injured by animals who have not been sufficiently trained, cared for or restrained.

Animal attacks can be unexpected and traumatic, especially when the owner could have done more to prevent it. From minor surface wounds to life-threatening injuries, our dedicated personal injury solicitors, who are experts in dealing with injuries caused by animals, work every day to secure the compensation our clients need to get their lives back on track; for medical treatment, for psychological care and for day-to-day assistance where necessary.

How can our specialist animal injury claims solicitors help you?

Examples of some of the cases where we have successfully secured compensation in claims where injuries have been caused by animals include:

  • Dog bites and attacks leading to a need for cosmetic and corrective surgery
  • Escaped cows causing road traffic accidents
  • Young herdsman injured by cows due to an unsafe system of work
  • Head injury caused by a kick from a horse

While many responsible animal owners have an insurance policy in place, this is not a legal requirement. If there is no insurance, it can often make it more difficult to pursue a claim for compensation; however, you can rest assured that our expert solicitors will actively pursue a claim on your behalf where there is a chance of recovering funds.

Remember, with Redkite you are never just a reference number. Your solicitor will take the time to get to know you and to understand the full impact your injury has had upon your life. We are with our clients, every step of the way.
