Compensation win secured for young girl bitten by a dog

Our personal injury specialists have reached a settlement for our client, a young girl who was bitten by a dog.

The young girl was visiting the stables where her horse was kept, when a dog belonging to the owner bit her to the face. This was understandably a traumatic experience for the young girl who became scared of dogs and was left with facial scarring. Our compensation claim solicitors reached an agreed settlement of £125,000 plus costs to reflect the seriousness and lasting impact of the injuries sustained.

The case should act as a cautionary tale for all dog owners who invite people on to their grounds and do not have their dogs suitably secured.
