My neighbour’s dog attacked me in their garden – can I claim compensation?
A: If your neighbour knew that you were visiting, they should have ensured that their dog was kept under control.
This is a legal responsibility for any owner, whether in a public or private place.
If your neighbour was unaware that you were visiting, appropriate warning signs should have been displayed to make you aware of the loose dog. Any entrances or gates should also have been locked.
If you were bitten in an incident that should have been prevented by the owner, you may be able to claim compensation.
