Bringing a personal injury claim for a dog bite

Such claims are usually brought under the 1971 Animals Act. Under this act, your claim will be based upon whether the dog has been aggressive or has shown behavioural qualities that are out of character. Importantly it must be shown that the owner/keeper of the dog ought to have known that the animal was likely to behave in such a manner.
