Leeds based personal injury lawyers Levi Solicitors have issued a timely warning that dog bite claims are on the increase.
As Summer quickly approaches both adults and children will be venturing out to parks, playgrounds and beaches increasing incidence of this sort of accident.
Unfortunately the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 has failed to prevent some horrific injuries occurring as the scope of the Act is very narrow in terms of which dogs are actually considered dangerous.
Levi Solicitors have dealt with a considerable number of clients claiming compensation after having been attacked whilst out running, walking or just enjoying the sunshine.
They have been successful in obtaining significant amounts in compensation for these individuals and although this obviously cannot make up for the pain and shock suffered it can certainly help with the financial cost of any care given or loss of earnings as a result of the injury.
If you have been the victim of a dog attack or any other form of attack then please call the personal injury team on 0113 244 9931. You will receive free assessment of your claim and an estimate of the amount of compensation you may be entitled to.
