Under the Animals Act 1971, an owner of a dangerous species (as defined by the Act) will normally be responsible for damage caused by the animal.
Where the damage is not caused by a dangerous species the owner will still be responsible if:
If you have been injured as a result of an animal attack then you should seek medical attention as soon as possible (if required) – it is important to clean any wounds as quickly as possible to prevent infections or further complications. You should receive a medical report as proof that you were injured by an animal – this will strengthen your animal attack claim. Legal professionals will be able to guide you through the whole claims process and ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
As with all claims for personal injury compensation, there are time limits within which a claim must be lodged with the Court. For accident claims, court proceedings must be started within three years from the date of your accident.
In the event that court proceedings are not started within three years from the relevant date, the negligent party may be able to escape paying compensation on the basis that your claim is out of time.
