Injuries Caused by Animals

If you have been injured or involved in an accident that involves an animal which was not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation. Many people do not think that they can claim compensation if they have been injured by an animal, however in certain circumstances you can.


Animal accident/injury claims can include many different cases where the animal is

involved directly or indirectly, some examples are:

  • Horse related incidents  Horses can kick, spook and bolt without any warning.

  • Dog related incidents  There are around 8 million dogs in the UK, so it isn't surprising that most animal accident claims include dog bites and attacks. 

  • Cow related incidents  Traffic and road incidents can be caused as a consequence of cows escaping from the field.The farmer may not be to blame, but you may still be able to make a claim as the law requires insurers to pay compensation.


Why should you file an animal injury claim?


According to the Animals Act, which was introduced in the year 1971, animal owners and handlers are legally required to make sure that the animal in their care does not hurt or injure anybody.
