A lady came to Actons after suffering significant dog bite injuries.
The dog, being walked by her neighbour, was on a long leash and attacked her near her home.
She instructed Actons after reading about our expertise in dog bite compensation claims.
She suffered significant injuries to the top of her right shin, which became infected.
As a result, she was admitted in the Accident and Emergency department of Doncaster Royal Infirmary.
The wound itself healed after 10 weeks but she was left with visible scarring.
As well as the damage to her shin, our client said she suffered from ongoing pain for 2 years.
How we helped claim compensation
Actons pursued the claim on the basis that the owner did not have control of their dog.
Our client was injured at fault of the owner, who could have carried out reasonable steps to prevent the attack.
During the course of the claim, we kept our client updated, striving to achieve the best possible result for her.
We arranged for her to be examined by a plastic surgeon, also seeking advice from a barrister to ensure maximum compensation was secured.
After negotiation, we obtained a settlement of £11,000 for our client, who was very pleased with the outcome.
