Dog Bite Injury London Specialist Solicitor

Compensation for Dog Bites Claims Expert West London

It is estimated that an unbelievable 210,000 people are attacked by dogs in the UK each year. Being bitten by a dog can be a unpleasant and traumatic experience. You need an experienced solicitor to handle your dog bite claim, as unlike other personal injury cases, you do not have an automatic right to compensation. At Ronald Fletcher & Co, Derek Rosenblatt has over 30 years of experience in personal injury. As a firm we have a proven track record of success in dog attack cases, and can take your claim on a no win no fee basis.

If you or a loved one have been attacked by a dog, you may be able to claim compensation for:

  • The pain & suffering, whether it be physical, psychological or emotional.
  • Lost income from having to take time off work, due to the injuries sustained.
  • Damages to clothing or property such as spectacles.
  • The care and time of family friends who need to care for you.
  • Any over the counter medication you have had to use.
  • Prescription charges.
  • Travelling expenses, if you need to travel to the hospital or to see your GP.
  • Plastic surgery costs
  • Any other loses that you have incurred as a direct result of the incident

You do need to make a claim within 3 years of the dog bite injury, so if you or your child has suffered such an injury, Ronald Fletcher & co can help.

Things to do to Make A Claim:-

  • Report the incident at your local Police Station – you will receive a crime reference number.
  • Identify the owner of the animal, and get their address.
  • If there are witnesses to the incident, get their contact details.
  • Photograph your injury
  • Ask if the animal has attached anyone else.
  • Keep a record of all your expenses related to the incident.

  • Contact all witnesses and assess the likely success of your claim.
  • Speak to your employers, and gain clarification on the loss of your earnings whilst absent from work.
  • Arrange for you to have a medical examination.

Ronald Fletcher will keep you updated each step of your claim and we together will decide what is best for you to do. We relieve you of the stress and worry of your case.
