Dog bite and animal injuries
Injuries caused by dogs and other animals can be not only devastating but also traumatic. Fortunately, dog attacks are uncommon. However, if you have been unfortunate enough to have been bitten or attacked by a dog you are likely to be eligible to claim compensation under specific legislation. Such claims are usually brought against the owner’s pet insurance policy.
Another example of claims for injuries caused by animals are horse riding injuries, and bites and attacks on farms and petting zoos.
If you have been attacked or injured by an animal, you might be entitled to compensation. At Stacks Goudkamp we are experienced in obtaining compensation for clients who have been injured by animals, and in particular dog biting cases. To read our success stories, visit our case studies page here.

Car accident case studies:
Warwick was walking his two small dogs along a quiet suburban street in Sydney when two rottweilers escaped from a neighbouring property and attacked his dogs. Warwick suffered injury to his shoulder, neck and back as he tried to fight off the rotweillers and protect his dogs.
The rottweilers’ owner had left the gate of his rented premises open, allowing the dogs to escape. Warwick needed ongoing medical treatment and was unable to work as a result of his injuries. We were able to successfully recover compensation for Warwick from the owner of the rottweilers.
