If I am able to claim compensation, what are the next steps in the process?

A: If the owner of the dog has either pet or household insurance, you’ll be looking to claim compensation from these companies.

If they aren’t insured, we must then carefully consider their assets and decide whether they are able to pay for the compensation themselves.

It’s crucial to gather as much evidence as possible. Following medical attention, you should:

  • Obtain contact details of the owner
  • Find out the breed of the dog
  • Obtain contact details of any witnesses
  • Take photographs of the injuries you sustained

If it’s discovered that the dog’s breed is banned or known to be dangerous, your chances of securing compensation are much higher.
