Personal injury claim following dog bite incident
In April 2005 we received a phone call from the father of a boy who wanted to make a personal injury claim after his son sustained a serious dog bite wound when out playing.
The man told us how the 10-year-old boy was playing football at the local park with his brothers one Saturday afternoon when a dog, which had escaped from its lead, came bounding towards him.
The dog, baring its teeth, suddenly knocked the boy off his feet and pushed him to the floor. When the boy attempted to struggle free and stand up, the dog bit his face, causing lacerations which left significant residual scarring to the cheeks and nose.
After a short stay in hospital, where he had a thorough examination and his wounds were cleaned and dressed, the boy returned home to his family.
This was not the first time that this dog had attacked and the boy's father was advised that he had good grounds to pursue a personal injury compensation claim against the dog's owner on behalf of his son. So he enlisted the help of The Claim Solicitors, as he had heard of our fantastic success rate.
The boy was soon awarded £10,000 for his facial injury, which was put into a trust fund until he reaches 18 years of age, and additional funds to cover the cost of his medical treatment. Read more about making a claim on behalf of a child.
