Injuries Caused by Animals
Contact Our Team
Injuries caused by animals, especially livestock, can result in devastating injuries. Our specialist lawyers have helped both seriously injured clients and the families of those who have been fatally attacked by animals.
Dangerous dogs can inflict vicious bites, potentially leaving you with a need for reconstructive surgery, and trampling by cows or being kicked by a horse can result in serious internal injuries or spinal cord trauma.
Any of these injuries could completely change the way you live, but our specialist team of animal injury claim solicitors can help. Contact us today.
WE PURSUED A CLAIM FOR JOHN, ON BEHALF OF HIS WIDOW AND RECOVERED COMPENSATION FOR HER.
John was on holiday walking two dogs on a lead along a public footpath which crossed a field of cows. The cows had calves at foot and when they came over, John immediately released the dogs from the lead and the dogs ran away. However, the cows continued to have interest in him rather than the dogs and they knocked him down. He was able to get up but he was knocked down again. He curled up into a ball but the cows continued to attack him and trample on him. He was killed at the scene.
How we helped
We pursued a claim for John’s widow and recovered compensation for her. Although it cannot replace her husband, the added financial security it has given her has helped to alleviate an additional pressure.

Fatal Animal Attack Inquests
Animal injury claims can have life-changing consequences. Cows can attack people walking on public land, and poorly supervised horses are equally capable of causing injury. If those injuries prove fatal, you may be invited to attend the inquest into the death of your loved one.
The process can be daunting for any family member, but our solicitors are experienced in helping families to navigate it. Speak to us today to find out more.
