Most of us will come in to contact with animals regularly. We are after all a nation of animal lovers. In it’s annual “PAW report” the PDSA estimates that up to 50% of the adult population own or live in a household with a pet, with dogs and cats being by far the most popular. The vast majority of our contact with animals is positive, rewarding even. Sometimes however that is not the case. Sometimes contact with an animal can lead to injury, often serious injury. From dog bites to being kicked by a horse, animal caused injuries can leave lasting affects for which you can be compensated. If you are unfortunate enough to be injured by an animal it is important that you speak to a specialist lawyer, these are complicated cases and require expert knowledge. Contact Andrew Marsden either via our live chat function or on 01274 214015 to get the help and advice you need.
HOW MUCH CAN I CLAIM?
Compensation for different injuries vary depending upon a number of factors. These include – the severity of your injury, how long you take to recover, how it affects your life. You can also claim for expenses you incur such as loss of earnings, travelling, medication, care and help. Our experts lawyers will discuss all these matters with you to make sure you get the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST ME?
Under our no win no fee scheme you have the peace of mind of knowing that you have no legal fees to pay at the start of your case or as your claim progresses. Nor will you have to pay if your claim does not succeed. There is a charge when your claim is successful, but for your peace of mind we cap that at a maximum of 25% of your compensation.
HOW LONG WILL MY CLAIM TAKE?
No two claims are the same, and there are lots of things that effect how long a case can take, for example a case where court proceedings are necessary will usually take longer than a case where they are not. We understand that you will want to conclude your case promptly, and you can be sure that our specialist lawyers will work hard for you to make that happen.
