Dog Attack Claim Our client, Laura, was playing outside her house when she was bitten by her neighbour’s dog. A normally docile West Highland Terrier, the dog had reacted out of character and was put down following this event. Laura suffered a bite wound to her leg and subsequent scarring, as well as psychological trauma, with an overwhelming fear of dogs. Laura’s mother requested our help to pursue a claim for compensation. We obtained medical evidence and a psychological report and Laura’s claim was successfully settled with the damages invested on her behalf until she is 18 years of age.
