Accidents Involving an Animal

Accidents involving animals are always traumatic, whether an animal has ‘escaped’ and caused an accident or whether you have been attacked and suffered an injury. Owners of animals have a duty to comply with legislation and however your injury was caused, Hilary Meredith Solicitors Ltd can offer immediate assistance and advice.

Animal owners or keepers are responsible for keeping their animals under control and ensuring that they don’t cause injury to others. If you have been injured as a result of inadequate supervision of an animal or negligent behaviour of an owner or keeper then you may have a claim for compensation.

Common examples of claims involving animals are:

  • Horse riding or horse handling accidents
  • Animal bite injuries
  • Injuries from a dog attack
  • Crushing or trampling injuries from larger animals
  • Psychological trauma caused by an accident involving an animal
  • Injuries from escaped or unruly animals
  • Injuries as a spectator at an animal show

Often injuries caused by animals can lead to permanent scarring or disfigurement as well as suffering psychologically following an accident.
