All animals, when anxious, have the propensity to attack. If you have been injured through an animal attack, or suffered injury as a result of animal behaviour, you may have grounds for a Personal Injury compensation claim. The most common attacks are by domestic pets, most notably dogs, but can include horses, farm and zoo animals. For example, owners and establishments have a duty to provide adequate signs warning of the animals, and to provide well maintained and suitable cages and guard rails as appropriate to protect the public. Additionally there are strict rules for the control of certain breeds of dogs.
Animal attacks can cause both physical harm and mental distress. Therefore, if it is possible to show the party who had control or responsibility for the animal, or who owned the animal, was at fault, you can bring a compensation claim against them. Receiving compensation will help you financially to receive the treatment and care you need as well as compensate for any additional costs you have incurred, as well as for the distress caused.
Attwood’s approach all Personal Injury cases on an individual basis, and can enable you to make a Personal Injury claim when you have been hurt by an animal through no fault of your own.

Independent reviews from our CLIENTS
I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
