Animal Claims


Dog Bite Compensation Claim Specialists

Dogs are wonderful companions, but by their very nature they can occasionally attack people. Regardless of breed, and even if the dog is not classified as a ‘dangerous dog’, if you sustain an attack or an injury then you may be entitled to bring a claim for damages.

Andrew & Andrew Solicitors’ specialist team have over 60 years of experience in helping clients pursue the compensation that they deserve after suffering harm from a dog bite. Such claims are not straight forward as the owner, or handler, is only deemed liable if he knew the dog had a history of aggressive behaviour and was not sufficiently careful to ensure it did not present a danger to another person.

Where an incident occurs, it is important to notify the Police and obtain details of the owner. By contacting our team of solicitors and legal executives your case will be dealt with in a fast and efficient manner. Most importantly, we can advise you as to any further evidence that needs to be obtained to actively pursue your case and support the dog bite claim.

Statistics

  • There are more than 200,000 people per year estimated to be bitten by dogs in England. There are over 8 million dogs in the UK.
  • 2012 – 2013 there were 6,302 related hospital admissions.
  • Hospital admissions due to dog bites have been steadily increasing over the last 5 years.
  • The main injuries from dogs were open wounds to wrist, hands, head and forearm, with children generally suffering more injuries to the head compared to other groups.

If you have been bitten in the last 3 years then please contact Andrew & Andrew Solicitors; we will be able to advise you in more detail about your potential claim.

Equestrian Accident Compensation Claim Specialists

If you are a keen horse rider, you will know that horses can spook, kick, rear or bolt whenever it feels in any danger. If you work with horses, you may pick-up an injury due to your working environment.

There may be other incidents, such as simply riding a horse at a riding school and there has been negligent supervision by the instructor, or allowing you to ride a horse which is unsuitable. You may have been kicked or bitten by a horse when it is not been property controlled or restrained. You may have been injured as a spectator at an equestrian event due to the horse going out of control, or you may have been involved in a road traffic accident involving a defective horse box or trailer.

Statistics

  • There are approximately 3 million horse riders in Great Britain and the British Horse Society estimates that there are around 3,000 accidents involving horses each year.
  • A report by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents showed that in 2011, there were 133 horse rider casualties recorded by the Police in Great Britain.
  • There are countless unreported accidents and remember, even if they remain unreported, you can still bring an injury claim.

If you have been involved in any of these incidents within the last 3 years, we can provide the expert advice you need to maximise the money that you deserve due to the injury. Andrew & Andrew Solicitors are familiar with the risks and nature of equestrian accidents. We pride ourselves on being there to help using our 60 years of experience.

Cow Accident Compensation Claim Specialists

From cars hitting cows that have escaped from a field, to walkers being trampled by cows, many people are injured by cows every year. The farmer may not be to blame, but you may still be able to make a claim as the law requires insurers to pay compensation. More often than not, these types of claim are not straight forward and there is a need to deal with each case on its merits and set of circumstances.

Our specialist personal injury solicitors have over 60 years of experience in dealing with such claims. We pride ourselves on our sympathetic, diligent approach to our clients and are able to actively pursue the case in a fast and efficient manner.
