Examples of Accidents Involving Animals Claims

£9,700 for cyclist who collided with a dog

Mr H was riding his bicycle when he collided with a dog. The Insurers for the dog owner repeatedly denied liability.

We obtained a Legal Expenses Insurance Policy and pressed on with the case. The Insurers then offered to settle liability on a 50% contributory fault basis. The compensation was ultimately settled on a 25% liability basis.

Mr H received £9,700, an increase of £3,750 on the first offer.


£24,000 after attack by cow

Mr T was injured, as he was walking along a public right of way, when he was attacked by a cow.

The first counter-offer from the land owner’s Loss Adjusters was £16,000, which was then increased to £21,000.

However, compensation was negotiated to £24,000.
