If you have suffered an injury as a result of an animal you may be able to claim compensation from the owner of the animal or its keeper. The most common kinds of animal accidents are dog bites and those caused by farm animals straying on to a road.
Remember, if an animal attacks you be sure to obtain the owner’s full name and address along with details of any insurance in place in order to achieve successful recovery for any injury, loss or damage sustained as a result of an attack.
If the keeper of the animal failed to take out any form of insurance, then it may still be possible to sue the owner of the animal. However, this would depend on whether the owner of the animal has sufficient assets and/or income and is able to meet any judgement obtained.
