About Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

The Dangerous Dogs Act was amended in May 2014 and the law applies to all dog owners in England and Wales.

It is a criminal offence for anyone in charge of a dog to allow it to be dangerously out of control in a public space or private property, allowing the police or local authority powers to seize a dangerously out of control dog in a public or private place.  It is also a criminal offence for a dog to attack an assistance dog (guide dog).

Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

In order to assist your claim to try to find out the following information:

  • The name of the dog breed
  • The identity of the dog owner
  • The address where the dog/owner lives
  • If anyone else has been bitten or attacked by the same dog
  • If the dog has behaved aggressively before.

Dog bite claims which involve specific dogs which have behaved aggressively in the past and restricted breeds such as Pit Bull Terriers may make liability easier to prove against the dog owner.
