Accidents caused by animals require specialist legal advice. Injury caused by animals that are not of a dangerous species (for example dogs) requires proof either that any damage was likely to be severe or that the damage was of a kind which the animal in question was likely to cause, unless restrained. In addition the keeper of the animal needs to know this information.
Many people suffer bites and other injuries from dogs every year. It is possible to consider a claim against the owner of the dog in certain circumstances.
