Can I Claim Compensation for a Minor Dog Bite
Any dog bite compensation claim is dependent on the extent of the injury sustained and the impact that it has had on your life. As a result it is difficult to determine what is and what isn’t a minor dog bite. For any claim to be successful you need to be able to prove that any injury was the result of an owners inability to control their dog.
Which Breeds of Dog are Most Likely to Bite?
While any breed of dog could bite and injure you, there are certain breeds that are more likely to cause injury than others. It is possible for any dog that is scared, over excited or been treated negligently in the past, to bite someone. However some breeds are more commonly associated with biting humans. These include rottweilers, certain terriers and pit bulls. Irrespective of whether you have been bitten by one of these breeds of dog or any other breed of dog you may be able to claim dog bite injury compensation. To find out if you are eligible to make a claim for a dog bite injury get in touch with our experienced legal team today.
Can I Claim If I Was Bitten by a Neighbour’s Dog?
The answer to that, if they were found to negligent or had not controlled their dog properly is likely to be yes. The onus is on the owner to ensure their dog is under control, and if they fail to do this resulting in you being bitten, then you may be able to claim whether it is a dog belonging to your neighbour or a complete stranger. If you have been bitten by a dog that has escaped from home or is out on a walk we are here for you. Our team of legal experts can help determine whether you are able to make a claim for dog bite injury compensation.

Am I Entitled to Claim If I Was Bitten by a Dog While Trespassing?
If you were bitten by a guard dog while trespassing it is unlikely that you will be able to claim compensation. However, there are certain circumstances where you may still be able to make a claim. For example, if the owners had failed to mark the land as private or they had not erected ‘Beware of the Dog’ Signs, you may still be able 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 still be eligible to make a claim. The onus is always on the owner to prevent the dog from biting people, unless you had no right being on their property.
